Process plant foam cleaner works at lower temperature

Advantis FC provides excellent cleaning performance against protein and fat soils on stainless steel processing equipment

Ecolab in the US has introduced the Advantis FC Cleaning Program, a high-foaming, chlorinated alkaline cleaner specially formulated for use with reduced temperature water.

Advantis FC provides food and protein processing facilities with excellent cleaning performance 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 145°F (63°C). Advantis FC effectively cleans protein and fat soils at temperatures as low as 105–110°F (40.5–43°C). The programme improves cleaning performance in plants that cannot achieve or maintain high water temperatures throughout the sanitation shift.

‘Advantis FC helps customers achieve operational efficiencies and sustainability goals,’ said Nick Alfano, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Ecolab Food & Beverage North America. ‘The programme decreases water heating costs and the refrigeration costs necessary to return production areas 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.’

Safety can also be improved by reducing poor visibility due to condensation and scalding injuries
