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.
Celeste has a long and colorful history, due to its founder Charles Granville. He is remembered by many as being a very nice man and never ceasing to make people laugh. He and his friend N. Lee Swartout founded the company in 1946 in Wilton, Connecticut; as a perfume company called Angelique.
The two decided to start their own perfume company during their daily commute. They both worked in New York and spent around 3 hours a day on the train commuting from Wilton. Swartout worked as a manager for a bottle manufacturing company and Granville as an efficiency engineer.
When they started Angelique, they decided who would be the president with a simple coin toss! Granville won and became president and his first official action was to make Swartout treasurer.
Sani-Cide EX3 is our new EPA registered, aircraft approved, broad-spectrum disinfectant and multi-purpose cleaner all in one convenient product. Gone are the days of needing to carry a glass cleaner, disinfectant, and general purpose cleaner onto an aircraft! Sani-Cide EX3 offers a safe and effective approach to the cleaning and disinfecting of numerous surfaces throughout an aircraft. It is capable of cleaning multi-soils and leaving behind a clean, streak-free surface.
Sani-Cide EX3 is an effective disinfectant even though it contains no quaternary ammonium compounds, this also makes it a much better cleaner. Look how well its non-quat based formula did at cleaning this galley floor! You couldn’t even tell the floor was supposed to be blue before Sani-Cide EX3 was applied. That grungy gray/brown that was there comes from using a quat-based cleaner/disinfectant. The quats build up over time creating a grunge factor and making the surface look dirty even though it was recently cleaned.
