Ventilation of food processing facilities

Ventilation expertise and the ability to manufacture unique solutions for food processing facilities are at the heart of our innovations.

We design and manufacture bespoke solutions for ventilation problems faced at food processing facilities. Halton has over 50 years of experience in solving food-related ventilation challenges.

Typical challenges

Industrial scale food manufacturing processes are characterised by non-traditional, typically custom-designed cooking equipment for both their capacity and power requirements. They are often based on a unique form of cooking, such as steaming or frying. These processes generate significant loads of heat, mixed with large volumes of smoke, steam, and grease.

Due to the large size and height of the cooking equipment, and the use of lifting mechanisms or conveyors, the exhaust systems are often installed higher. This makes it more challenging to efficiently remove pollutants, and calls for bespoke systems with custom dimensions, shapes, and features.

A high level of hygiene is a requirement for food processing facilities. Air, if handled incorrectly, can spread contaminants inside facilities and emit odours outside that can become an issue in residential areas. Many hygiene issues experienced at food processing facilities can be traced back to inefficient and unhygienic ventilation systems.

Food Processing Industries’ Ventilation

Food processing facilities have the most specific and unique cooking equipment out of the food industry, and this sector would appear to have little in common with commercial kitchens.
