COOL AWARD FOR CLEVELAND BIOTECH'S FRIDGEFREE INNOVATION
Pollution solution specialist Cleveland Biotech proved to be a clear winner in the 2008 Cooling Industry Awards with its biological solution for clearing gel build -up in the drains of commercial refrigeration units. The company's Amnite L600 FridgeFree™ won the Field Service Innovation of the Year accolade in the prestigious annual awards.
FridgeFree™ is a combination of a broad spectrum of spore-forming strains of Hazard Group 1 Bacilli, and bio-surfactants. It works by disrupting the formation of the gel-like substance that frequently blocks condensate drains serving commercial fridge units causing flooding, while at the same time causing real health and safety issues for the affected stores.
The installation of FridgeFree™ to the top or bottom or a refrigeration unit will supply automatic metered doses into the condensate drain line every day, running unattended for up to three months. The system impressed the judges in an award category which recognises new products, approaches or systems that enable field service engineers to concentrate on the maintainance or repair of refrigeration plant in such a way as to safeguard the environment. In fact, one of the judges called the offending gel “one of the nastiest substances that you will come across in the refrigeration sector” and hailed FridgeFree™ a solution that “frees up the engineer to fix refrigeration systems, not clear drains”.
“The awards recognise the achievements of companies pushing the boundaries of environmentally focused refrigeration and air conditioning,” comments Cleveland Biotech’s managing Director Ben Hoskyns. “For that reason we are delighted to accept this award for FridgeFree™. We are proud to have created an innovative natural product that not only keeps drains clear but in doing so reduces call out time and avoids the risk of flooding.”
Cleveland Biotech provides innovative natural solutions to the growing problems of pollution and, in particular to those arising from the discharge of effluents and wastes into the environment.
