The effects of contaminated air during cooling, transport and packaging can have considerable consequences in terms of quality and costs.
Cooked, boiled or fried goods are cooled in cooling tunnels or towers. During this process, air is actively blown at high speed over the product in order to produce heat exchange. Unfortunately, the air is often contaminated with germs, which therefore also means that germs are transferred to the product.
To prevent this from happening, we recommend using VIROBUSTER in air intake or recirculation systems.
Conveyor belts often cover long distances, which increases the risk of contamination from the air. In order to prevent this contamination, we recommend enclosing the conveyor belts and installing a pressure protection system. VIROBUSTER supplies germ-free air to produce the excess pressure.
Cutting, packaging or filling is the last step in a production chain before the goods are sent on to the customer. Unfortunately, there is also a risk of contamination from the air at this stage. VIROBUSTER therefore recommends creating a “high care” zone in order to guarantee optimum safety throughout the entire production process.
