Our client’s bakery production area suffered from very high summer ambient temperatures and local over-cooling in winter.
Variable room pressures were having a detrimental effect on a number of the key production stages and affecting product quality, leaving the facility vulnerable to numerous hygiene issues.
First, we assessed the existing ventilation and, where possible, retained as much as we could.
We then added a combination of new central plant and local ventilation systems to improve the overall temperature and used air sock distribution in specific areas to provide local cooling for personnel and to minimise the loading on the roof structure.
The old and the new system were integrated on to a common building management system, and heat recovery from production was utilised to temper the air supply in winter.
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
