Ecolab Introduces Cleaning Solution for Food Manufacturers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa That Utilize Low …
Exelerate®ZTF, a patent-pending cleaning solution
that dissolves low trans fat oil residue from processing equipment and
surfaces, is now available to food manufacturers throughout Europe, the
Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
Exelerate ZTF’s thixotropic gel technology clings to equipment and
surfaces to help dissolve low trans fat soils, making it easier to
remove soils in hard-to-reach areas, including fryer hood vents, walls,
ceilings and plant catwalks.
“The increased use of low trans fat oils in food processing operations
has created new cleaning challenges,” said Andreas Weilinghoff, senior
vice president and general manager of Ecolab Food Beverage, EMEA. “As
the oil mist from frying and baking processes comes into contact with
equipment and surfaces, extremely stubborn soils build up, making
surfaces very slippery and difficult to clean. Exelerate ZTF offers the
optimized cleaning performance necessary to help avoid low trans fat oil
Ecolab’s Exelerate ZTF already has garnered recognition in the Food and
Beverage industry, earning the IFT Food Expo Innovation Award as the
industry’s first and only cleaning program designed to address low trans
fat oil build-up in food processing environments.
