On farms across the country, technology has made planting, harvesting, and producing food a more effective and efficient process than ever. The same is true for the facilities that sort, store, and package these goods. With the advent of modern technology, these facilities can ensure that our food supplies stay fresh, healthy, and safe until they reach our tables. Heat exchangers play a major role in this shift. In addition to helping keep farm machinery and manufacturing equipment operating properly, heat exchangers are also responsible for making many of the processes required for food and beverage packaging much easier and more reliable.
Keeping Food Safe for Longer
Heat exchangers made a huge splash in manufacturing technology several decades ago, providing substantially more efficient and less costly solutions for managing electrical waste heat. Their secret lies in the ability to transfer heat away from electrical equipment with minimal energy and consistently reliable results. However, as important as managing electrical waste heat is, cooling control panels is not as sensitive a process as food and beverage packaging.
Heat exchangers have become a boon to the food and beverage industry for the same reasons they became so popular for other manufacturing industries. Yet, in addition to cooling electrical equipment, the ability to efficiently transfer and manipulate thermal energy also makes them vital to streamlining certain food production and packaging processes. Some foods must be pasteurized to eliminate harmful microbes, which means they must be subjected to specific temperatures for varying lengths of time. Most also have to be stored at certain temperatures to ensure that they don’t spoil before being shipped to market. With heat exchangers, these and many other thermal management needs can be met consistently and reliably, and at much lower costs than traditional air conditioning equipment.
