Developing our team – Plasma Clean ‘Grease Hygiene Technician’ team

By platform81

Plasma Clean now have a qualified ‘Grease Hygiene Technician’ team certified by BESA (Building Engineering Services Association) training.

Plasma Clean offer assessment and solutions required to safely clean grease extract systems and associated components. As part of maintenance and support our certified team can carry out pre & post clean testing. In accordance with appropriate regulations and legislation.

BESA training courses website states: “The ventilation hygiene sector is growing. Building owners face rising costs and more stringent conditions imposed on them by insurers concerned about fires being spread through poorly maintained ventilation systems. The need to keep food preparation areas free of contamination is another increasingly important area of potential reputational risk. This depends on air systems being kept clear of airborne contaminants.”

Since it was first developed in 1998 by BESA, TR19 has been widely accepted by the building engineering services sector and British insurers as the standard to which ventilation systems should be cleaned. The guiding principle of TR19 is that a defined, measurable level of cleanliness should be achieved. This improves safety and comfort in buildings. Read more about this HERE.

Currently studying a BTEC Level 3 in Electrical Engineering; Sean specialises in Technical Sales. He advises customers on the specific applications of the products and their role within each project.

Sean Strong, Plasma Clean maintenance and applications engineer, also commented on the training. He said:“From the grease hygiene technician course I have learned the recommended ways to remove grease from ducts. As well, how to comply with TR19 guidelines and the common misconceptions in the industry.”

For example, the most helpful part, would be the understanding that a TR19 certificate doesn’t exist. Only a complete TR19 report complies with the legislation.”

He added: “Now when arranging duct cleans and general maintenance works, I have a greater understanding of the techniques used. Therefore I can offer better explanations to customers.

Grease control is essential for all commercial kitchen extraction systems. Grease poses a great fire risk and must be maintained and monitored by a professional.”
