FT051 F A C T O R Y www.foodtechnology.co.nz 33 WELLS AND VIKAN LAUNCH REVOLUTIONARY “ULTRA SAFE” FOOD GRADE BRUSHWARE Vikan AS in Denmark have just launched a revolution in food grade brushware design, called “Ultra Safe Technology” (UST). With global food safety standards increasing all the time, Vikan UST brushware exceeds any and all such standards of safety without the use of non EU Food Contact approved resins as found in resin set brushware. It is expected the food processing industry will move away from resin set brushes as they are not fully mounded, they use toxic resins that are not recyclable and are a poor hygienic design. Vikan UST brushware, through the design of the ingenious “Filament Security Units” delivers the most secure filament retention available as the product is effectively a one piece hot moulded brush (handle and filaments). Furthermore, the clever spacing of the bristles / filament security units make the product extremely easy to clean, sanitise and inspect. All products have been validation tested and the cleaning efficacy is excellent. Furthermore, the British Food Safety peak body, the Society of Food Hygiene and Technology (SOFHT), recently awarded Vikan UST brushware as the winner of the annual Best New Product or Service award in Europe. Vikan’s exclusive distributors in Australia and NZ (W R & D Wells and Wells Hygiene) have taken delivery of their first shipment of Vikan UST brushware. For further information they can be contacted on AUS +61 3 9699 8999 or email@example.com, or NZ on +64 9 263 9332 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
