ACR News Awards sees HydroFoam 2.0 take Ancillary accolade

Advanced Engineering's heavy-duty cleanser and brightener, HydroFoam 2.0, was named Ancillary Air Conditioning Product of the Year at the ACR News Awards in March.

It is the second award for the revolutionary formula, which is an industry first: a heavy-duty cleanser which is non-toxic, acid-free and completely biodegradable.

The ACR News Awards judging panel was impressed by HydroFoam 2.0’s powerful performance, which does not compromise on safety.

Launched in March 2018, HydroFoam 2.0 is the result of a collaboration between Advanced Engineering and the University of Surrey.

Dr Kajally Jobe, head of research and development at Advanced Engineering, led the project to make the company’s flagship HydroFoam product better for units, the environment and those working within it.

Dr Jobe said: “We’re delighted that HydroFoam 2.0 has been recognised by the industry once again. We are especially grateful to our partners at the University of Surrey who supported us in developing this ground-breaking product.

“The original HydroFoam proved an extremely popular and successful product but we were concerned about the potential impact that hydrofluoric acids could have on engineers, customers and the environment. At the same time we knew that simply reformulating the product using a weaker but safer acid would compromise the exceptional results that customers expected.”

Using proton chemistry, Dr Jobe and his team succeeded in developing a condenser cleaner and brightener which is safer to use and handle.

“HydroFoam 2.0 is far less harmful than other heavy-duty alternatives,” added Dr Jobe. “In fact, it’s less harmful than your average toothpaste.”

The non-corrosive formula does not erode aluminium or copper, resulting in coils that are more energy-efficient and remain brighter for longer.
