Tulip, one of the UK’s leading food manufacturers, needed to replace and upgrade their existing pork pie coolers located within the heart of their fully operational factory in Lincolnshire.
We were asked to undertake a comprehensive survey of the existing plant and produce an outline proposal. The project we devised involved the careful removal of the existing evaporating coils and its associated framework.
New enclosures, coils and associated stainless steel frames were installed, the cooling tower was extended and associated pumps were replaced.
The use of evaporative cooling to pre-cool pies is a very efficient method with a COP (coefficient of performance) being three to four times quicker than that of mechanical cooling.
In its completed form, our client was very happy with the technology we supplied and installed for them.
