Sauermann and Gel-clear Join Forces to Prevent Refrigeration Biofilm
Sauermann, a global leader in condensate removal pumps, and Gel-clear, a UK-based company that produces tablets that prevent the formation of refrigeration biofilm, are pleased to be partnering to offer a superior Si-93 pump solution.
Biofilm is a bacteria that often forms and is a well-known problem in supermarket refrigerated-display cabinets. It can cause costly leaking.
The combination of Sauermann`s Si-93 membrane pump and Gel-clear`s anti-biofilm tablet provides a winning solution for store owners and customers that can significantly reduce their leaking liabilities by nearly 100 percent.
The partnership between Sauermann and Gel-clear for this product was cemented during Chillventa in Germany.
¨Sauermann Group and Gel-clear are both very excited to offer patented technologies and a solid solution to our supermarket, agri-foods, commercial and refrigeration sector customers¨, said Serge Bohyn, CEO of Sauermann Group, and Paurick Gaughan, Managing Director of Gel-clear.
For over 40 years, Sauermann Group has designed, manufactured and sold products and services dedicated to industrial and HVACR markets. The Group specifically focuses on the detection, measurement, and control of indoor air quality (IAQ). We operate three main brands: Sauermann for condensate removal pumps (including accessories and solution kits) and instruments for improving indoor air quality, as well as Kimo and E Instruments for instruments aimed at measuring and monitoring air parameters. The Group has a worldwide presence, is located on three continents (Europe, Asia, and North America), has 21 sites (including four production plants), and employs over 400 people.
With a 25 year background in food retail drainage, design, installation, consulting, and 15 years of providing reactive maintenance services to many UK food retailers, Paurick Gaughan brought Gel-clear tablets to the market in 2012 after a 4 year study into biofilm in food retail refrigeration, and 2 years product development with a manufacturing partner. The tablets were purposely developed for food retail refrigeration to suit client operations, providing the simplest, and most effective treatment on the market. Since launch, the tablets have won the RAC cooling awards Refrigeration Product of the Year 2016, and the HIVE Innovation Award 2017.
