This is because unbeknownst to most, the air pollution in cellars is at dangerous levels. By keeping cellars cold, we also keep toxic gases created through the use of equipment in the cellar as well. As a direct result of this, all of the natural air pollutants such as fungi, mould and harmful bacteria grow to very high levels without escaping.
But it’s not just the health of staff that is in danger, the quality of real ale is at stake, too, as the polluted air is also drawn into the barrel when pulled.
With the LineLight device we found that mould colonies in a test cellar were decreased to three. Without the device, they reached a high of 55! This is staggeringly high and is a big risk to humans with the potential of producing respiratory problems!
So what are the perks for your cellar? Well, the LineLight device is incredibly easy and quick to install and can be left on 24/7 to actively neutralise airborne pollutants.
The LineLight device is unique in that it is the only technology on the market that performs this job making cellars not only safer for staff to work but increase in ale quality as well as increased shelf life!
