The client had an old system in the powder mixing room, which was in poor condition and unable to maintain the required 10°C production temperature.
There was severe corrosion due to wash-down chemicals and the area never dried after being washed down, resulting in high microbiological growth.
We had limited space in which to design and build a solution which focused on reducing the humidity levels on the premises.
Our solution was designed and built within a short timescale. It was installed with 24/7 production in progress and tailored to fit a very tight footprint with special wash-down functionality built-in.
The new system meets HEPA filtration levels, while the existing external refrigeration plant has been re-used. Our online defrosting has not caused any loss of performance.
All installation work was performed on time and to a high standard. The installation team, ensured that they worked safely and that the safety of others around the working area was considered at all times.Michael Clifford, Engineering Manager Britvic Soft Drinks
