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.
The ventilation problems faced at food processing facilities are as unique as the food produced in them. Solving them requires expertise in ventilation, air behaviour and thermal plumes. An appropriate exhaust system design and installation are critical to a successful operation. All elements of ventilation need to be taken into consideration in improving hygiene levels, working conditions, and system efficiency.
