Water-based sanitising system 'enhances performance'

03 September 2010

Hygiene Group, UK supplier of contract cleaning services to the food sector, has introduced a cleaning and sanitising system which requires no detergent or disinfectant whatsoever

The Ionator uses just tap water which is electrically charged and then sprayed out from a hand-held unit.

The charged water loosens dirt from the surface, enabling it to be easily wiped away, being especially effective in removing fresh greasy and oily soil without leaving a smear on metal and glass surfaces. It also transmits an electric field to the surface where it kills more than 99.9% of harmful bacteria.

Ideal for light to medium duties and spot cleaning, the Ionator can, in many cases, replace multi-surface cleaners and detergent sanitisers. Typical applications are in food preparation and service areas, and for intermediate cleaning of conveyors and lines during product changeovers.

Using Ionator offers rapid and effective cleaning and sanitising, while reducing risks to the operator by avoiding any chemical handing. The complete absence of smells or chemical residues also avoids any risk of taint – even to susceptible foods like butter, fats or cooked meats.

As well as being used by Hygiene Group operatives in their work for many of the UK’s leading food and beverage manufacturers, the Ionator can be purchased through Hygiene Stores, the specialist division of Hygiene Group supplying cleaning and janitorial equipment.

Neil Brown of Hygiene Group commented: “We recognise that Ionator may impact only a part of our business but believe its many advantages make it a worthwhile step to take. It is a further example of how at Hygiene Group we constantly seek to evaluate and introduce technologies that offer genuine advantages in cost, safety and environmental sustainability.”
