Gel-clear creates a non-hazardous drain cleaner
UK: Gel-clear has launched what it claims is the first non-hazardous cleaner for HVACR condensate drains.
A safe alternative to acid/alkaline/caustic cleaners, it is said to be formulated to kill biofilm-forming bacteria in overhead condensate drains while cleaning and unblocking drains.
“Under cabinet condensate drains have always eluded the reach of conventional drain cleaning methods, too often engineers will use caustic/acid/alkaline based drain cleaners as a last resort, and at risk to them- themselves and the equipment they work on,” explained Gel-clear MD Paulick Gaughan.
“The BRA has always accepted that overhead condensate draining under the cabinet is the responsibility of the refrigeration contractor, and as such, the launch of a user-friendly, food-safe cleaner is a big step. forward in cabinet PPM and reactive maintenance,” added Gaughan.
Considered safe for the environment, Foaming Drain Cleaner is phosphate and phosphonate free and can be safely discharged into the waterway. It comes in a 215g tear strip, resealable pouch.
Gel-clear has pioneered HVACR condensate removal in food retail, developing and manufacturing award-winning chemical and physical products in the UK to improve the efficiency of condensate removal.
