September 14, 2017

Aspen Pumps, the UK’s market leader in condensate removal pumps and accessories, is delighted to announce that it has been named as a finalist in two prestigious HVR Awards. The company’s ground-breaking cleaning technology, Storm Chemicals - Green XL, has been shortlisted in the ‘Commercial/Industrial Air Conditioning Product of the Year’ and ‘Sustainable Product of the Year’ categories.

The HVR Awards identify outstanding technology, exceptional customer service and true novelty in the way companies operate or in what they produce. Winners will be announced at a prestigious awards ceremony on Thursday 26th October at London’s Chelsea Harbour Hotel. The evening includes a riverside drinks reception, three course meal and high profile awards presentation, as well as being an excellent opportunity to network with peers and colleagues.

The revolutionary Storm Green XL offers a step change for the air conditioning (AC) sector as the first probiotic cleaning technology on the market. Offering the market tomorrow’s solution today, Green XL uses microscopic deep cleaning technology that provides a long lasting deep clean beyond the microscopic layer (biofilm). It leaves a healthy microflora on the surface (‘good’ microbes to fight against ‘bad bacteria’), ensuring a product remains clean in-between service intervals. Plus, unlike conventional disinfectants, bacteria cannot become resistant to it. Storm Green XL removes both the visible and invisible dirt eliminating dust, mould, bacteria and other pollution as well as neutralising bad musty odours caused by fungi and bacteria.

“We are thrilled that Storm Chemicals - Green XL has been shortlisted twice at these important industry awards” said Vern Klein, Head of Business Development – Storm Chemicals at Aspen Pumps. “Storm Green XL offers an innovative, effective and environmentally friendly deep cleaning solution to the market. The range of products are easy to use and ideal for any regular maintenance program, resulting in fewer call backs and improved energy efficiency of equipment.”

Thanks to the intensive, deep clean provided by Storm Green XL, the energy efficiency of AC equipment is improved. Keeping equipment clean can provide up to a 30% energy saving, making an effective clean a great bonus that saves companies money. Using Green XL also results in fewer call backs since AC will be clean for longer and so work more efficiently.

As an environmentally friendly cleaning technology, Storm Green XL ticks all the right boxes. Being 100% biodegradable and harmless to humans and animals, it is safe for the user and the environment, and eliminates hazardous shipping or storage as contractors don't have to worry about COSHH restrictions. In addition, the ‘good’ microbes help provide a healthier indoor environment with improved indoor air quality (IAQ) as they remove the ‘bad’ bacteria and are safe to breathe in.

There are three different cleaning products within the Storm Green XL range: Foam Clean, Power Clean and lastly the Protec Gel and Spray. Green XL is part of Storm Chemicals, a new range of innovative products designed to clean and maintain HVACR equipment. For further information, visit
