Cereal Partners process area cooling

Phased introduction of high temperature production area air systems eliminates need for steam heating

The Outcomes:

  • Heating costs reduced to zero
  • Electrical consumption significantly reduced
  • System effect improved
  • Production efficiency improved as a consequence
  • Maintenance cost reduced

The Challenge:

The existing plant in the product forming area was old-fashioned with inefficient fans and high steam usage, operating on full fresh air.

The Solution:

We stripped out the old systems and installed new ones, using high temperature production area air to eliminate the need for steam heating. The new systems were installed, one at a time, so as not to disrupt production.

We used existing apertures to minimise down time and complied with our client’s hygienic construction standards. Our full stainless steel construction featured energy efficient fans, utilised with inverter speed control.
