Food Manufacturing

Whether it’s the rapid cooling of cooked ready meals or the temperature control of production areas, refrigeration is at the heart of every frozen and chilled food manufacturing facility. Delivering this cooling is a direct cost to a business, including expenditure on capital plant, ongoing electrical energy consumption and regular service and maintenance. Reliability is also key, with many facilities operating around the clock and needing cooling 24/7. Star delivers cooling solutions that are tailored to the specific requirements of each production facility. This includes the supply and installation of equipment for:
  • Production area cooling, including food spec air handling equipment and sock systems.
  • Blast freezing and chilling.
  • Inline freezing and chilling, including the supply of spiral, tunnels and contact cooling equipment through our group company, Starfrost.
  • Potable water production.

In Hayes, Middlesex towards the end of last year a world premiere occurred, but it passed with relatively little comment, no national press coverage, and certainly none of the razzmatazz that would accompany such an event on the other side of the Atlantic. For the first time, certainly in this generation of refrigeration engineers, a large, low temperature industrial refrigeration system had been commissioned using a cascade between carbon dioxide and ammonia as the working fluids in the plant. There is almost certainly no comparable system currently anywhere in the world; although the success of the Hayes project means that several more will undoubtedly follow in quick succession.
