The Project

Hygiene is the number one concern within any Food Processing Plant with specialist air handling being critical to control airborne particulates, microorganisms, and toxigenic pathogens.  Mansfield Pollard’s expert engineers were recently engaged to provide an air handling solution for a food manufacturing plant in Hungary.

The Solution

Two modular air handling units, each supplying 13.6m3/s were manufactured with a combination of 304 stainless steel and food grade white laminate internal panelling plus raised non-slip GRP open thread walkways to maximise internal cleanliness. Full unit width, custom-built stainless-steel drain trays were incorporated into the design to prevent any moisture build up inside the unit.

Additional protection was provided by Blygold coated coils and a fully galvanised PFC channel base to prevent corrosion. The provision of two EC fans to maximise energy efficiency and provide improved diffusion of airflow over the component sections.

The Highlights

Ultra-Hygienic Components: Protection from unwanted substances, meeting strict hygiene standards

In-Built Redundancy: Dual EC Fans improve airflow diffusion over components and creates a unit redundancy option.

Critical Environmental Control: In food production sites, environmental air must be of a specified quality in terms of temperature, particle concentration and humidity.

Energy Efficiency: High efficiency unites with energy recovery and variable speed fans.
