Regulating temperature and moisture levels with dehumidification will create a steady indoor climate in cold processing and storage plants

Compulsory monitoring of humidity levels in processing plants and cold stores and an increased concern for public health has seen commercial dehumidifiers become essential tools for reducing ice build up and condensation and enhancing hygiene in all areas of food processing. Without some form of dehumidification, condensation will occur in cold room environments where food is stored and meat is regularly processed. Condensation causes discomfort to employees and creates an ideal climate for contamination and bacterial growth.

Condensation and ice build up pose a particular problem in areas close to outside entrances where hot and cold air mingle and cause dips and rises in temperatures. We often see stalactites hanging from roller doors and pooling water on floors, which, at best, means extra man hours to remove ice and water and at worst, causes serious injuries to employees.

Regulating temperature and moisture levels with dehumidification will create a steady indoor climate in cold processing and storage plants, which means:

  • Floors stay drier and are safer

  • The working environment is less hazardous

  • The air is easier to breathe

  • Ceilings remain free of condensation

  • Bacterial growth is reduced

  • The premises dries quickly after cleaning

  • Less intensive cleaning is required

 

Using a commercial dehumidifier means a frost and germ-free environment. These are essential for meat processing and food storage to:

  • Decrease operating costs

  • Decrease loss of stock affected by moisture

  • Avoid the proliferation of bacterial growth

  • Reduce condensation

  • Increase energy efficiency

  • Improve product quality and appearance
