Helapet do their part for MacMillan!

In aid of Macmillan Cancer support Helapet joined the nation by holding the annual “World’s Biggest Coffee Morning” supporting the great work the Macmillan nurses do for people living with cancer. On the day, coffee mornings were held in homes and workplaces across the country, in support of the MacMillan campaign.

Helapet once again outdid themselves with plenty of homemade cakes, cookies and treats much to the delight of everyone including our very own Managing Director, Ben Miles.

The Helapet team raised a fantastic £211.80 for the cause, and of course, all donations were given to charity. We would like to say thank you to all at Macmillan for the invite and well done to all that took part!

New Machinery for Filter Devices

In response to increasing demand, Helapet are investing in the increased production of inline disc filters with brand new injection moulding machinery and tooling.
 
For over 30 years our Filter Devices division has specialised in the design and manufacture of 25mm and 50mm inline filters, with the ability to customise them with different filter media and inlet/outlet connections.

A few words from Dean Marsh, Operations Manager
This new machinery will support our ongoing growth strategy and improve production capacity for our 50mm filters. We also expect to gain greater precision and control of our components, which will help build on our reputation for quality and allow us to investigate other product opportunities.”

Helapet takes the stress out of sporicides with the launch of new SteriSpor™ sterile trigger spray

Helapet are pleased to introduce an all new sterile sporicidal trigger spray for fast acting elimination of spore contamination in cleanroom environments.

SteriSpor™ is a stable hypochlorous acid (HOCl) preparation developed to minimise the risk of viable spores during aseptic transfer of cleanroom materials and to treat non-product surfaces.

Demonstrating a greater than 3 log reduction of viable spores in less than 1 minute, SteriSpor™ meets necessary EN standards and exceeds the latest UK efficacy guidelines.

The minimal residue reduces removal time and presents a very low corrosion risk to cleanroom equipment, isolators and furniture. Classified as non-hazardous and emitting very low odour, SteriSpor™ provides assured safe handling for cleanroom operators.

SteriSpor™ becomes part of Helapet’s comprehensive range of cleanroom sprays and wipes (impregnated and dry), all supplied fully cleanroom processed, double bagged and sterile.

For additional information and to request free samples, email us at sales@helapet.co.uk or contact us directly on (0)800 0328 428.
