Our Greek partners “Crystal Clear Hellas” have recently carried out some very exciting work to demonstrate how well AIRsteril technology performs in a cold room environment.
Two Butcher shops were selected by the Butchery Association with similarly sized cold rooms, total microbial load was then measured in both before and after AIRsteril installation by Aliment laboratory (accredited Microbiological and Chemical Laboratory of Food & Water).
Before units installation both cold stores showed an anticipated background level of microorganisms of >300 cfu/100m2.
After unit installation, total microbial load in both cold stores dropped dramatically averaging 14cfu/100m2, following an adjustment to the product lamp these levels fell to <1 cfu/100m2. This once again demonstrates that AIRsteril products offer a simple and economical solution to reduce or even virtually eliminate airborne microorganisms.
AIRsteril has long been utilized by those in the food processing industry with our Ultimate range supplied throughout some of the largest meat processing plants in Europe. Our Washroom products are regularly supplied for toilet/shower areas, and the Multiflex range installed in changing rooms and especially the transitional areas in food environments where shoe/wellington boots are stored.
We have had many impressive test results over the years, including proof AIRsteril technology can eliminates Listeria from a cold store and demonstrating constantly reduced bacterial contamination both on meat carcasses and throughout the environment during large scale processing, however we have not previously carried out testing in a smaller scale butchery environment so this is excellent to add to our ever expanding portfolio.
"The UK banking centre at Canary Wharf is populated with modern skyscrapers featuring the latest in office building technology. The Credit Suisse UK HeadQuarters allows staff to make the most of windows which has meant that the main building services are sited in the middle of the building. As such with long air ducting, their luxury washrooms struggle to maintain air quality and a clean, fresh smelling work place.
They have installed AIRsteril for odour and infection control in their washrooms. Convinced that the bacteria and viruses that cause infections are killed by AIRsteril, the new offices will feature MF units to ensure staff absenteeism is kept to a minimum."

"On a Test Match day at Lord's there are 25,000 people, mostly males, spending all day watching cricket and drinking. With several visits per person during the day the gents toilets can have up to a 10,000 footfall a day. The staff have had difficulty in clearing the resulting odours. The stainless steel trough urinals in some of the washrooms create added problems.
Just in time for a major Test Match, AIRsteril WRX trial units were installed in two of the major washrooms. After just a few hours, the units had managed to get on top of the smell, then controlled the odours throughout the 5 day match. The facilities staff are very pleased and plan to increase the number of installations before the start of the next cricket season."
