Material choice and surface finish
Due to the nature of food production facilities, several critical parameters must be considered. Hygiene requirements are significantly higher than those of traditional manufacturing facilities so material choice and surface finish are of critical importance. to ensure the minimum standards are satisfied, careful consideration must be made with regards to these two aspects.
Temperature, humidity, and filtration
Temperature and humidity must be carefully controlled to ensure no detriment to food quality, and filtration must be suitable to ensure the high indoor air quality needs of the application are met.
There are 4 main categories of food production which have differing requirements, particularly with regard to filtration expectations.
