Using ZT PRO BLAST will remove one of the most toxic items in your building!

The brewing industry requires cleaning services for areas ranging from brew tanks and spigots to facility floors and restrooms. Although all facilities want clean floors and restrooms, the challenges brewers face in cleaning their equipment are unlike those in other industries. Looking clean is not good enough. The product suffers when tanks and other facility fixtures are not cleaned correctly. Only truly clean tanks and fixtures, without lingering odors or residues and without unwanted organisms, can produce the highest-quality brew.

ZolaTerra’s ZT PRO BLAST has come on the scene to provide this level of cleanliness without harming the environment, personnel or the tanks themselves. Certified by NSF, USDA, Leaping Bunny and PETA, this green cleaner has passed test after test to prove it can remove the toughest soils and odors while protecting the environment and people.

We developed ZT PRO BLAST with specific goals in mind:

  • Make cleaning safer for brewery personnel

  • Completely clean brewery equipment with existing CIP (clean-in-place) systems

  • Clean any surface in a brewery

  • Remove unwanted odors

  • Reduce energy costs and carbon footprint

  • Reduce chemical and biological load on local sewerage districts

  • Can be used to clean tanks in wineries, distilleries, cider or anything brewed in a tank
