Kitchen services specialist Filta Environmental has launched a new professional Seal Cleaner – a ready-to-use solution for the cleaning and maintenance of commercial fridge seals.

Used daily, Filta’s professional Seal Cleaner can extend the lifetime of commercial fridge seals and help maintain kitchen hygiene, by removing fats and food spills that would cause the seal to dry out and get brittle, increasing the risk of rips. It can also maintain kitchen hygiene and food safety, helping to prevent micro-organisms and bacteria from entering the food storage compartment.

Users should remove any debris with a cloth, apply the cleaner with a spray bottle or clean cloth and leave for 30 seconds before wiping dry.

Edward Palin, commercial director of Filta Group UK, said: “A split, worn or broken fridge seal has a significant impact on the cooling capacity and energy consumption of the unit, not to mention compromising hygiene and food safety. Without a proper seal, the fridge or freezer will ‘leak’ cold air, which causes the cooling compressor to run more frequently or even continuously in order to keep the cabinet content at the set temperature.

“Maintenance of fridge seals is important for food safety, it avoids maintenance costs, can extend the lifetime of the seal and reduces the energy consumption by up to 25%. However, aggressive cleaning agents such as all-purpose cleaners, sanitisers, oven cleaners and degreasers can cause irreparable damage when used on fridge seals.

“Our cleaning product has been purpose-built for fridge seals, providing a simple solution that can extend the lifespan of seals and help to ensure fridges are running at optimum efficiency.”

Filta also offers FiltaSeal, providing on-site replacement of almost all commercial fridge seals in one visit by manufacturing new seals in a dedicated mobile workshop.
