Excessive steam release issues in the production area was causing massive condensation issues on the walls and ceiling with moist air getting into the chiller. The ice build up on the chiller evaporator resulted in shorter run times and downtime to regularly defrost.
The proximity of a spiral steamer and spiral chiller was contributing to the high moisture transfer problems. Condensation on the building fabric was also increasing the hygiene risk. Our brief was to significantly reduce the very high humidity conditions in this high care space. Previous attempted solutions had made the situation worse.
Penmann enclosed the area in a hygienic insulated stainless steel clad room and then ventilated the room with dry warm air, to absorb the moisture and prevent fogging and condensation, using a desiccant de humidifier
