The Challenge

Provide precise temperature control to keep up with 800 tonnes of produce

The Eat Just GmbH Munich food processing site is a constantly busy facility – and our customer needed to keep it that way. Around 800,000 tonnes of produce were processed by the many machines, staff and processes that the site contained – but a vital part of machinery was in dire need of maintenance.

The closed loop water circuit contains a tremendous amount of liquid – approximately 90,000 kilo’s per hour passed through the device – which was used to keep the produce at the exact temperature needed.

Without this, production would grind to a halt and critical targets would not be met. A swift solution was needed.

The Solution

Refrigeration package and sector expertise

Our experts leaned on their extensive experience working in the food and beverage industry and knew that not only a rapid solution was needed – reliability was key too.

Anything less and entire batches of food would have to be wasted. We wasted no time in devising a package that comprised two air chillers and a food heat exchanger. This would enable a temperature of 2oC to be achieved and more crucially – for it to be upheld constantly.

The system would cool 90 M3 an hour of glycol mixture to the desired temperature, and our ancillaries – which included hosing, a return buffer tank, assorted pumps, 3-way valves and power cables – was overseen by our own remote monitoring system and 24/7 customer support. With this, it meant any changes to the environment or fluctuations in the temperature could be remedied instantly.
