Ecolab’s Exelerate ZTF, a cleaning solution that dissolves low trans fat oil residue from food 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 residue, making it easier to remove it from 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, based in Switzerland.
“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 optimised cleaning performance necessary to help avoid low trans fat oil residue.”
Exelerate ZTF has already won the IFT Food Expo Innovation Award as the industry’s first cleaning programme to address low trans fat oil build-up in food processing plants.
