UK: Gel-clear has extended the life of its condensate drain tablets, making them effective for over a year.
According to Gel-clear MD Paurick Gaughan, the change aims to bring consistency and simplicity for installers, PPM operatives, and reactive maintenance engineers.
“Our tablet is installed by a range of people from refrigeration engineers to case cleaning technicians. We appreciate case designs differ, operational use varies, we know placing the tablets as directed is not always possible. In light of this we have increased the tablet’s lifespan by 40%,” he said. “This takes the tablet’s lifespan well over the one year mark no matter how the tablet is used.”
Gel-clear’s proprietary formula prevents biofilm differently from conventional methods – the Gel-clear tablets dissolve, coating the pipes and drains, preventing the microbes and bacteria from secreting extracellular polymeric substance at a molecular level.
The tablets are commonly installed during the deep clean process, but are said to be just as effective when installed reactively, in-between deep cleans.
Case studies are said to have shown a proven reduction in water leak call outs between 90-100%.
The previous YPG44 tablet will be replaced by the new QP34 tablet for all existing customers. There is no cost increase on the new tablet, which will be available in new tubes of 10 tablets.
