Mizkan needed to pressurise and filter its sauce process to prevent any external contamination and minimise spoilage. The existing cramped process equipment presented access difficulties and the building structure imposed weight limitation on any solution.
Penmann designed a system which imposed a minimum load on the roof and could deliver low-velocity air, with a displacement effect, to the operator location which ensures maximum cooling.
Our displacement air solution included multiple air handling units located on the roof in positions that minimise the structural load and then deliver air into the operator location below the ceiling using textile socks.
Air displacement systems are energy efficient and offers significant advantages over conventional air mixing systems. Filtered fresh air is distributed across the area via textile socks, with the low velocity air falling to low level where it’s needed most. Warm and contaminated air is then displaced to high level and extracted outside.
With centralised plant on the roof, filter changes are low cost, quick and easy, with no disruption to production.
We also fully integrated all the existing supplies and extracts into a single control panel with inverter control. The system could adjust up and down depending on the external temperature and at the same time maintain positive pressure and prevent ingress of contaminants.
We have worked with Penmann on projects across all our UK sites. Their attention to detail is evident throughout each project.
The phrase ‘Turnkey Solution’ is used extensively in projects, but never has it been better suited than for describing a project by Penmann.Tom Mitson, Lantmännen Unibake
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
“This project was my first experience of working with Penmann and I found them to be extremely knowledgeable and flexible, particularly at design stage. The project delivery was very good with great attention to detail paid to the design, overseen by an exceptional project management team. The build quality was excellent. We would certainly use Penmann again on future projects”.James Clayton, Engineering Services Manager, Hotel Chocolat
We are very happy with the cooling tunnels designed and supplied by Penmann. All projects have been undertaken in an extremely efficient manner and have been delivered on time and on budget, and we have been particularly pleased with the performance of the tunnels.Stephen Graves Factory Engineering Manager, Müller Dairy
The service you provide through Penmann is always thorough, thoughtful and designed for a duty and service level that reflects the demanding 24/7/364 days operation we run here, and we therefore always call you first when manufacturing problems need specialised and bespoke HVAC solutions.Robin Wright, Projects Manager, Bakkavor Desserts Newark
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
Arla was pleased to engage the services of a locally based company on such a prestigious project. Penmann were able to work seamlessly with us to deliver a high quality product.Tim Hutchinson, Project Manager, Arla Foods Stourton
