Chlorine is widely used in the food and beverage industry but comes with a number of significant drawbacks.

Here we look at what these are and investigate some of the smarter alternatives for you here on our website.

Chlorine in cleaning detergents

Is chlorine overused in the food and beverage industry?

Chlorine compounds are widely used to disinfect equipment and worksurfaces. Although it is a very cost-effective method, it comes with a number of problems.

The bulk of chlorinated products on the market offer limited performance. Not only do they take longer to get the job done, but they also increase the risk of hazards in the workplace, for both the user and the wider environment.

But how do you cut through the grease and grime on an industrial scale in a way that’s both time efficient and cost effective?

How to deep clean your kitchen equipment

Chela tipsHow to deep clean your kitchen equipment

1

Professional kitchen equipment needs a lot of care and attention. Whether it’s the grease traps, fryers, grills or ovens you need to remove all dirt and grime, it all needs to be done on a daily basis. Most of the time, this is done using chlorinate cleaning products which are slow and hazardous to use in busy environments.

2

For a safer, quicker clean try a non-ionic blend of detergents and emulsifiers. This will give you excellent results without having to rely on glycol ethers. A daily product we recommend is CHELA Code 100 BALANCE. This cuts through even the toughest animal fats and grease. When tested to BS EN 1276:1997 it killed pathogens in under 30 seconds.

For a versatile alternative, we also recommend Bluestripe Degreaser. This is an aqueous, alkaline detergent system designed to remove greases, oils and ingrained soil from hard surfaces, deep fat fryers and machinery. It is a highly concentrated biocidal thay cleans and sanitizes at the same time, so you only need the one product. It is completely odourless and solvent free.
