HVAC Services for Food Manufacturing Facilities
The primary concern for manufacturers is meeting or exceeding customer expectations by ensuring the consistency and quality of their product. This approach helps shape how these manufacturers view their building systems and manufacturing processes as well.
In some cases, on-site storage and warehousing of perishable food products may be necessary, requiring industrial refrigeration and freezer units. These refrigeration units can be a significant operating expense that can quickly add up if the units are not properly maintained and monitored for performance. Certain facilities may require large ammonia-based systems which pose an additional safety risk due to the potential of chemical leaks if not regularly inspected and maintained.
In many facilities these manufacturing heating and cooling demands can be at odds with the comfort needs of employees, and can have a significant impact on the overall building energy efficiency as well.
Another key factor for food manufacturers is ensuring that their production facilities are sterile environments free from contaminants. This means that heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems for food manufacturing facilities must not spread dirt, bacteria or other contaminants around the production facility. Often this requires that contaminated air is exhausted out of the building and fresh intake air is brought in, conditioned and screened for pollutants to ensure that it does not negatively impact the manufacturing environment.
Arctic, a leading provider of indoor comfort systems and services, works with food manufacturers to provide solutions to their unique heating and cooling needs.
Arctic works with engineers to design systems to specifically handle facility loads and unique conditions that exist in the manufacturing environment. They make sure that the building is operated and maintained to continuously meet the needs of the facility and maintain a consistent indoor environment that supports the critical business mission.
By taking a systems approach, Arctic helps our manufacturing customers understand how manufacturing equipment and processes impact building performance, as well as how changes to temperature and indoor air quality may impact the food products being manufactured. By tying all of the building systems together.
Arctic can help our customers not only measure success in smooth system operations, but in dollars and cents.
