WHY USE LINELIGHT?
If air quality control was an active part of Health & Safety checks, most cellars in the licensed trade would be NO GO areas as the air pollution is at dangerous levels.
We try to keep cellars cold - that means keeping the cold air we create from escaping and warm ambient air from entering. It also means that the toxic gases created in the cellar cannot escape. Cellars are full of natural bacteria and mould, these grow to very high levels in the confined environment as airflow is restricted.
Mould spores and bacteria affect our respiratory systems even with brief exposure - what do you think it does to other live substances like real ale? Remember, every time you pull that handle on the bar the air in the cellar is then drawn into the cask.
“9 out of 10 pub goers would stop using a pub if its beer quality was consistently poor – yet only 34% would complain at point of purchase. They would simply go somewhere else.”
the bottom line
Kills mould spores in cellars
Increases quality of real ales
Increases life of real ales
Plug in and leave
Will not affect other beverages or equipment
PRINCIPLE OF PHOTO CATALYTIC OXIDATION
The cellar light is easy to install, it is plug and play operation that should be left on 24/7 and actively neutralises airborne pollutants through a process called Photocatalytic Oxidation (which was invented by NASA for cleaning the air on the international space station) Here is how the
Photo-catalyst absorbs UV light
Strong oxidising hydroxyls radical (-OH) formed
Cells of bacteria / odour are destroyed
Bacteria, pollutant, allergens decomposed
Harmless water and carbon dioxide formed
scientific tests carried out in a cellar with and without the linelight show staggering results
The images below show the active mould colonies present before and after the LineLight was installed. Initially there were 55 active mould colonies and within a few days post installation this reduces to just 5.
THE LINELIGHT DEVICE
The LineLight is the only such device on the market. Not only will it make the cellar a safe place for staff to operate in but it will also increase the quality of real ale and improve the shelf life.
All our products complement each other. Each one can stand alone or, used together, they can provide an unrivalled range of unintrusive, eco-friendly solutions, all aimed at improving your efficiency, beverage quality, customer satisfaction and, most importantly, bottom line profits.
