One of the industries that we work with often on their energy saving initiatives is food and beverage manufacturing. Because of the sanitary measures unique to their industry, they cant just insulate with any type of insulation material.
They have a variety of requirements, such as:
- Materials that are safe for incidental food contact surfaces
- Insulation that wont harbor mold/mildew that could contaminate their product
- The need for equipment insulation to stand up to wash downs regularly
- Water-based, non-toxic, and low VOC materials
Not many types of insulation can meet all those needs and be effective at giving them the energy saving and temperature reduction they need for their heat processes.
One thermal insulation material checks all the boxes and is also easy to apply
Syneffex Heat Shield Insulation Coatings!
To get food from farm to table, it takes about 10% of the entire U.S. energy budget, according to Choose Energy. An increasingly large portion of that is for food processing, which consumes approximately 1,640 trillion BTUs of energy each year.
Weve worked with companies in sugar production, soft drink manufacturing, dairy, canned goods, breweries, and many others, and they all have one thing in common
the difficulty of insulating their equipment. They cant use anything fibrous that could be a potential contamination problem, and they need something that can be washed down without being degraded.
Another thing they all have in common is being thankful they found Syneffex coatings!
Our coatings are moisture resistant and can stand up to regular wash downs, theyve been proven to be safe for use on incidental food contact surfaces, and theyre water-based, non-toxic, and low VOC. They can also be sprayed onto any size or shape of equipment.
