Experts In Hygienic Cleaning Equipment

World Class Quality, World Class Safety.

Hillbrush designs, researches and manufactures a very broad range of hygienic brushes and cleaning tools. Our technology-led antimicrobial products help reduce the ability of molds, bacteria and fungi to reproduce and their ability to spread elsewhere.

Cross Contamination Risks

Every hazard assessment will highlight the danger of cross contamination as a potential way for microbes to be introduced into products and on to product contact surfaces.

 

Cross contamination can happen from any number of processes that take place during food manufacture, including cleaning.

 

Cleaning tools are designed to mechanically remove microbes and other contamination from surfaces but once on the equipment, microbes will try to adhere to it in order to survive. Cleaning the tools is the first step and most effective way to ensure contamination is not transferred, but there are other options that can improve this task.

The most common cause of food poisoning is Campylobacter, which is thought to be responsible for around 280,000 illnesses and over 100 deaths every year in the UK.*

Microbial Contamination. The Danger You Can’t See

MRSAMicrobes can thrive on all surfaces, and this is a huge issue for anyone in the food and beverage industry. Without very sound housekeeping practices, cleaning equipment can easily pick up contamination, allow it grow, and then spread it elsewhere as it is used. So it is perfectly possible for microbes to reproduce on, and be spread by, the cleaning equipment that is meant to be preventing contamination in the first place.

Where Do Bacteria Thrive?

  • Produce and anything that it touches
  • Conveyor belts
  • Transport containers 
  • Machinery, packaging and storage containers
  • Knives and chopping boards
  • Non antimicrobial cleaning equipment

Cross Contamination Risks

Cross contamination is a major cause of health risks within the food & beverage industry. It can start at the cleaning stage where bacteria are transferred onto the product from the cleaning surface. cross-contamination

Hillbrush Support – Antimicrobial Tools

Hillbrush’s antimicrobial product range addresses both bacterial contamination and cross contamination. All the plastic parts, including the brush fibres and resins, used in our antimicrobial cleaning programme contain an FEIBP approved silver-based additive from Biomaster. This additive decisively interferes with the ability of bacteria, moulds and fungi to reproduce, and used together with standard good housekeeping practices radically reduces or eliminates the chances of microbial contamination and odour by up to 99.99%, when compared with control samples and tested according to accredited ISO 22196:2011 methodology.

bio master

The antimicrobial additive starts working immediately and is your second line of defence. The technology is constantly working between cleans and reduces 80% of the bacteria on the product in minutes. It is very important that the cleaning equipment is kept without soil (dirt), as microorganisms can use dirt as a protective barrier against the antimicrobial benefits.

 

About The Range

The cleaning qualities and durability of Hillbrush’s antimicrobial products are as exceptional as in our standard products, and their antimicrobial characteristics are not affected by time or abrasion.

 

The products, including brushes, squeegees, dustpans, scoops and buckets, are available in a multitude of colours, to help you with departmental segregation, or with keeping different types of food apart.
