Surface Sanitation in Restaurants

A group of people want to know what it’s like to dine in your restaurant. They’re looking online at your reviews. They may even send an email or call some of your customers, but they’re not hoping to enjoy a meal at your establishment. They want to know how bad things were and they’re specifically interested if any diners got sick from an upset stomach. These people are personal injury and food poisoning attorneys and their goal is to find clients who have fallen ill after exposure from unclean restaurants, cafeterias, and kitchens. Class-action lawsuits against restaurants that had norovirus outbreaks are not uncommon. For the victims, settlements can be substantial. For owners, the court rulings can be devastating financially as well as for the business’ reputation.

Heat Exchanger and Boiler Maintenance: Chemical Descaling

Have you ever ironed a pair of dark pants only to have small white flakes fall out of the iron’s steam holes and make white streaks across your clothes? This is especially a problem in older irons that have never been cleaned. Your iron is in many ways like a commercial steam boiler. After a long time making steam, a boiler can clog up with white flakes and get trapped in the boiler system. This white buildup in both the steam iron and the boiler is a layer of calcium and other minerals called scale, or sometimes limescale. As the water evaporates, the minerals in the water don’t turn into steam when the machine is in use; they are left behind to form scale inside the equipment.

As annoying as those little white flakes are for your dark pants, imagine what those deposits do to the heating elements of large industrial equipment like boilers and heat exchangers. On some equipment, the scale buildup can be inches thick. An inch, or even a much thinner layer of scale is more than an annoyance, it’s a serious maintenance problem that diminishes system efficiency, reduces heat transfer, and increases operating costs. Just like maintaining and cleaning your steam iron, facility managers have to do the same for their heat exchangers and boilers.
