Food and beverage enclosures come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Scientific and technological advances are impacting legislation and demanding a greater focus on hygiene and cleanliness than ever before.
What Type Of Food Enclosure Should I Have?
With so much information available, it’s hard to know what’s best for your business. The right choice for you will depend on a number of factors like your processes and what kind of environment you have. One thing is certain however, if you’re manufacturing, storing or transporting food or beverages, you need to look at Food Grade Enclosures.
Food Grade Enclosures are designed specifically with the needs of the Food and Beverage Industry in mind. From the steel grade to the hinges, seals and screws, every aspect of a Food Grade Enclosure is created to optimise your processes and maintain hygiene standards.
Hygienic Design is a range of Food Grade Enclosures tailor-made for the operational needs of the Food and Beverage industry.
What Are The Benefits of Hygienic Design (HD)
1) Increases Productivity
Food Grade Enclosures have a variety of features designed specifically to reduce the clean-in-place process. Faster and more effective cleaning creates a reduction in down-time which increases productivity.
2) Minimises Risk
Features such as sloped roofs minimise health and safety risks. Traditional flat roofs encourage staff to leave items on the horizontal surface which poses huge hygiene, health and safety risks.
Roofs sloped at a 30 degree angle eliminate all of these risks as nothing can be stored on top of the enclosure.
3) Energy Efficient
Hygienic Design enclosures increase energy efficiency and reduce your company’s CO2 footprint.
4) Saves You Money
Faster and more efficient cleaning saves you money on labour hire, energy costs and consumables.
The modular enclosure design allows easy baying. They are easy to maintain and can be amended for future growth.
6) Climate Control
Advanced climate control capabilities protects your produce and equipment whilst also saving energy costs.
Made from 304 grade stainless steel, Hygienic Design enclosures are extremely resilient to the rigorous cleaning processes of the food and beverage industry. They will last longer and perform better than non food grade enclosures.
8) Contamination Protection
From external, joint-free silicon seals to hidden hinges and captive screws, every aspect of the design is created to reduce or eliminate contamination.
9) Sealed Access Points
Sensitive equipment and control panels are protected by secure covers and sealed access points.
10) Keeps You Ahead Of The Curve
Hygienic Design enclosures are created in compliance with European legislation which is most likely going to be implemented in Australia in the near future. Investing in food grade enclosures now will not only save you time and money from day to day operations but will also save you from having to implement process changes when the new legislation is enforced.
