Develop an inline palletised cooling system which caters for seasonal demand at the cream production facility at Arla Foods in Leeds.
Arla commissioned us to undertake extensive product trials using a modular section of the Penmann tunnel. We were able to establish accurate cooling times and analyse the retarding effect of fat crystallisation during the cooling process.
Our trials also confirmed that product quality was maintained at a high level.
We established that they could chill 500kg pallets of product from 35°C to less than 5°C, catering for an expansive range of product sizes and packaging arrangements.
Our rapid cooling using cooling tunnels ensures that consistent product quality is achieved. Using this system, Arla is able to dispatch product, safe in the knowledge that it complies with rigorous standards.
We found Penmann to have an excellent understanding not only of air conditioning and refrigeration but also of the production process and the logistics that surround it. All timescales were achieved and the systems are working well. I would have no hesitation in recommending Penmann to others.David Underdown, Sales Director, Rachels Dairy
