Vivelle will be promoting its Biomop disposable dry cleaning system. This microfibre mop is claimed to be biodegradable and manufactured from totally inert materials. Independent trials confirmed that it degraded within 12 weeks.

When the Biomop is swept across a hard surface it is said to generate a short life static charge which attracts detritus into the long dense fibre matrix. This is claimed to hold on to dust and bacteria particles down to 2.5-4 micron as well as larger particles of dirt, hairs and crumbs until ready for disposal.

Delex Teknik

A new holder and hook have now been integrated into the Toolflex system from Delex Teknik. Toolflex is a system of holders for equipment mounted on cleaning trolleys. Most handles have a diameter of 22-25  mm which means the 20-30 mm holder is most commonly used.

However a 25-35mm holder has now been developed to meet the demand for thicker, more ergonomic handles.

New to the Toolflex range of tube-mounted equipment is a small 15-20 mm holder and a hook for tube fixation. The small holder is said to accommodate the thinnest of handles  -  for example that of a long-handled dustpan and brush.

The hook can be used for smaller hanging items and can be mounted in any position on the trolley’s tube frame.

New on the WerkMaster stand will be the Scarab five-disk hand grinder for use on concrete, stone, terrazzo, hardwood, plastic, metal and most other hard surfaces.

This has a stand-up handle and variable speed function and is suitable for use on stairs, counter-tops, floors, walls and ledges. It can also be used in difficult-to-reach areas such as behind toilets, around plumbing, along bathtub ledges and around machinery.

The Scarab is claimed to be easy to use and works with most manufacturers’ variable speed polisher/grinders. The patent-pending five-head system uses standard three ins polishing pads, sandpaper, diamond abrasives or PCDS and can be used either wet or dry.

The Scarab can be used as a hand-held unit on counter tops, walls, railings or ledges. The removable handle is suitable for use on any surface where the operator needs to stand.

New from Idroeletrika is the Idroelectric system which cleans and sanitises by combining high pressures with high temperatures. It works with a low water flow rate which is said to reduce water consumption by up to 80 per cent. Meanwhile, the patented high pressure electric heating system removes the need for burners or combustible boilers.

High temperature pressure jets remove the dirt and grease from soiled surfaces while a thermal sanitising effect breaks down and eliminates contaminations.

The reduced water flow rates of the Idroelectric System allow for close-up precision cleaning and continuous visibility of the surface area being cleaned. It is also claimed to reduce physical strain on the operator.

The patented electric heating system avoids any issues with CO2 emissions and allows the system to be used indoors and integrated into HACCP cleaning procedures.

Capable of converting tap water into ionised water for chemical-free cleaning is the new Activeion Ionator EXP from Activeion.

The hand-held unit, which is slightly larger than a conventional trigger-spray bottle, is designed to be filled with tap water with no added chemicals. A 12V diaphragm pump sets off a continuous flow of water when the trigger is pressed.

Ionised water is a bacteria-killing cleanser claimed to be able to break down dirt from most surfaces. Independent laboratory tests have shown that the Activeion Ionator EXP can kill 99.9 per cent of harmful common bacteria such as E Coli 0157:H7, Pseudomonas, Salmonella, MRSA and Listeria, as well as eliminating the H1N1 swine flu virus within six seconds.

Rubbermaid and Technical Concepts will share a booth following Rubbermaid’s acquisition of Technical Concepts in 2008. The company will be introducing various new products including the Microburst Duet duel-refill air freshening system and the complete Hygen microfibre cleaning system.

Also on show will be the Element Indoor Recycling Station which aims to provide aesthetically-pleasing centralised collection points for multi-stream waste and recycling.

Available in one, two, three, and four waste-stream configurations, the Element Indoor Recycling Station holds up to 266 litres of material.

The restrictively-shaped openings provide visual cues for the end user in order to minimise cross-contamination, while the hinged doors are ergonomically designed to minimise operator discomfort.

Also on the Rubbermaid stand will be the Hygen microfibre cleaning system for healthcare environments. This uses premium quality split microfibre material which is claimed to be bleach-tolerant, durable and capable of trapping and holding 95 per cent of bacterial micro-organisms. Hygen microfibres can withstand up to 500 regular washes or 200 with bleach.

Rubbermaid’s web foot shrinkless wet mops will also be on show. The four-ply wet mop is made of recycled materials and claimed to be able to withstand repeated washes without shrinkage. The addition of looped ends and tailbanding is said to prevent the mops from tangling, while their antimicrobial protection inhibits the growth of bacteria that cause odours and stains.

The Technical Concepts range will also be displayed. New is the Microburst Duet System which automatically switches between two complementary fragrances loaded into the dispenser.
Flexible programming options enable the operator to select which fragrance will spray when, allowing the fragrances to be alternated at predetermined intervals. This helps to keep the scent immediately noticeable while reinforcing washroom cleanliness standards.

The highly concentrated formulation is claimed to provide three times more fragrance and odour neutraliser than standard refills, allowing one refill to last up to 180 days and replace three standard refills.

Also on show will be the TCell Air Care system which uses alternative power technology to deliver continuous air freshening and odour control.

Prochem will be demonstrating two reformulated extraction cleaners. The company has added new chemicals to its B112 Neutra-Soft and S775 Extraction Plus products. S775 Extraction Plus is an improved version of Extraction Pro, a low-foam cleaning concentrate for use in carpet soil extraction machines.

New pH boosters added to the product are designed to help break down heavy soil and grease, while optical brighteners enhance the visual finish of the cleaned carpet. The Extraction Plus solution is said to be clear and stable at high temperatures and dry to a powder residue.
Suitable for use on most types of carpet, Extraction Plus incorporates a new low-foaming surfactant system which helps prevent foam build-up on the carpet and in the machine recovery tank.

Neutra-Soft is an all-in-one extraction cleaner, urine neutraliser, deodoriser and rinse agent for carpet and upholstery soil extraction machines.

Developed exclusively for the healthcare market, the product eliminates urine deposits and odours by acidic neutralisation of ammonia residues and odour pairing of malodour molecules.
Extraction machines on show will include the Bravo, Galaxy, the Steempro Powermax, the Polaris 500 and 800 models and the new Comet self-contained carpet extraction cleaner.

This weighs only 18 kilos while its compact body and fold-down handle are said to make it easy to transport and store. The Comet is sufficiently compact to clean into tight corners - additional features include a patented self-adjusting and self-levelling brush; and patented lift-off bucket.
