CREATING A HYGIENIC PLEASANT ENVIRONMENT IN FOOD PROCESSING PLANTS REQUIRES LOW-SPEED AIR FLOWS
In food processing and cold storage environments airflow has a direct impact on product quality. The ideal environment is created through FabricAir solutions with low-speed airflow models, such as FabFlow™ or MicroFlow™.
Fengxiang Food Group is one of the largest chicken food product companies in China, with exports to Japan and the EU. The LDC Food Factory is one their processed food facilities.
The plant had been operational for many years and its direct air supply fan system had a number of drawbacks. As a result, the factory was in urgent need of a better solution.
FabricAir was tasked with delivering a solution dispersing filtered clean air evenly to avoid drafts and provide workers with a better work environment.
We used Trevira CS 150, which is an active antimicrobial fabric that complies with the Oeko-Tex Standard 100. This guarantees that the fabric is safe for use in the food industry.
Using MicroFlow™ the air was distributed evenly without draft, matching previous fan air volumes.
The permeable nature of the fabric prevents condensation from settling on surfaces, which in turn ensures against bacteria or mold growth even in this wet factory with a relative humidity exceeding 90%.
The result is an astonishing indoor environment with no unpleasant drafts and no hot or cold zones.
All-In-One also provides an aesthetic dimension to the ventilation solution. The fabric air ducts play into the overall context above the grid and even acts as an absorbent of sounds resonating in the space. The low pressure drop means significant energy savings.
On average a FabricAir solution can create savings of up to 40% compared to metal equivalents.
