Complete Hygiene: Clean, Disinfect, and Deodorize to Eliminate Malodors at the Source
Air travel creates a unique hygiene problem of highly trafficked, enclosed spaces that are prone to microbe and soil accumulation, along with malodor issues, all from a multitude of sources. Relying on non-targeted cleaners and high volatility air fresheners will only provide a temporary fix, while allowing the problem to intensify.
Complete Hygiene means solving the underlying problem, not just treating the manifestation, and providing the best possible environment for passengers and crew. Without a Complete Hygiene program, airlines run the risk of masking a larger issue, making a problem worse and more costly to fix. The core philosophy of the Celeste Complete Hygiene program is to Clean, Disinfect, and Deodorize with products that do not damage the surfaces involved, do not harm the user, and do not negatively impact the environment.
Sani-Tank is designed to clean and maintain recirculating toilet systems. It is formulated to fight the organic residue that accumulates on the surface inside the toilet holding tanks and on the recirculating pump and maceration systems.
If left untreated, the organic tar-like residue that builds up will cause severe malodors and can affect proper operation of internal waste processing systems by constricting pumps and motors, leading to excessive wear and tear. These residues can even be made worse by using a quat-based toilet deodorant. But regular holding tank cleanings with Sani-Tank will remove these residues and prevent them from accumulating to significant levels in the future; allowing you to avoid odors and system malfunctions.
Stinky Drains are the Worst!
As you can imagine, clogged galley drains and the associated malodors can cause a lot of problems for an airline. Luckily, we have developed a drain cleaner that does an exceptional job of keeping your drains clog free! It can also be used to help break up a pre-existing clog. But before we get into that, let’s go over what causes these clogs.
On commercial aircraft, galley drains are routinely used to dispose of beverages (e.g. coffee, milk, juice, soda). These beverages tend to have a lot of sugar in them, which serves as a food source for common bacteria and microbes. The bacteria and microbes break down the sugar and convert it into cellulosic polymer compounds, which attach to drain screens, valves, and lines. These cellulosic polymers are what lead to malodors and partial or complete blockages in the drains.
