HVAC 'Service and Maintenance Initiative of the Year’ Award

Company News

Interduct UK have been crowned winners at the Heating and Ventilation News Awards 2017. 


The awards ceremony, which were held on Thursday, have been running for 23 years and celebrate excellence, forward thinking and the highest achievements across the building services industry. Held at the London’s Grosvenor House Hotel, this year's ceremony was attended by more than 1,000 people from various industry sectors. The evening was hosted by multi-award winning comedian and presenter Russell Kane, and after show entertainment included a casino and karaoke bar.


Northamptonshire based Interduct UK, have been recognised for their innovative HCV (Hot Chemical Viscosity) riser cleaning method in the Service and Maintenance Initiative of the Year category. The judges were especially pleased to see how Interduct set out to find a solution to an industry-wide problem.


Andrew Gaved, editor in chief at H&V News commented: 

“I think these Awards demonstrate an industry that’s resilient, innovative and responsive - reacting to everything that’s thrown at it with imagination and passion.”


The method and product has been modified over the past four years, to ensure that the system now works extremely well. The team now clean in excess of 500 risers per year, which has led them to hold the title of the largest cleaner of kitchen grease extract risers in the UK.


A unique cleaning method keeps risers in industrial kitchens safe and compliant all year round, and was initially introduced because of the requirement of TR19 guidelines and in response to demand from premises for an effective way to combat issues such as grease build up and the fire hazard that this can often lead to. 


Paul Downing, Technical Consultant for the Building Engineering Services Association (BESA), said: 

“Having carried out monitoring and independent auditing at catering establishments who have adopted the "HCV" method, I am very impressed with the results of post clean cleanliness that Interduct constantly manage to achieve.”


Mark Poultney, Interduct's managing director, added:   

"We are honoured to say that our innovative HCV riser cleaning method has been recognised and commended in the industry. It is a method that has been perfected by ourselves over the years, and we are confident that there is nothing to rival this in the market currently. To receive such a prestigious award is a great achievement for our team.”
