Ecolab has introduced a cleaner formulated for use with reduced temperature water.
Advantis FC Cleaning Program is a high-foaming, chlorinated alkaline cleaner specially formulated for use with water at 105 to 110F.
Ecolab claims it helps food and protein processing facilities clean against protein and fat soils on stainless steel processing equipment and plant environmental surfaces.
Previous processes required sanitation water to be heated to temperatures as high as 145F. Advantis FC cleans protein and fat soils at temperatures as low as 105 to 110F.
Nick Alfano, senior vice president and general manager, Ecolab Food and Beverage North America, said: "The program decreases water heating costs and the refrigeration costs necessary to return production areas back to the appropriate temperatures.
“The overall downtime necessary for the sanitation shift is reduced, with customers saving up to one hour per day of cleaning time."
