Village Dairy high care installation

New ventilation and product cooling blast chill in purpose-built factory supports expansion plans for leading Dairy producer

The Outcomes:

  • Positive HEPA filtered air prevents yeasts and mould ingress.
  • Rapid cooling of production enables swift dispatch.
  • Controlled working environment for employees.
  • Project delivered on time and to budget, enabling rapid return on investment.

The Challenge:

Identifying the need for a new purpose-built yoghurt production facility to expand their business, they approached Penmann for a solution.

We designed the production area’s high care pressurised ventilation and the product cooling blast chill.

The Solution:

Following detailed discussions with our client’s project team, we developed the following excellent value engineered solutions for both areas:

  • A dedicated air handling unit which has a three-stage filtration to HEPA filter standards, supplying high care.
  • The system is ducted to supply terminals in the production area and tank rooms — this ventilates and positively pressurises these areas to prevent ingress of yeasts and moulds.
  • A refrigeration plant capable of cooling all the production from 25 degrees to less than four degrees is installed in the chill store, enabling swift dispatch.
