Walking through the aisles of our local grocery stores, we’d be hard-pressed to find food and beverage products that didn’t rely heavily on boiler steam for their production. In fact, steam boilers serve a critical role in the operations of virtually every food and beverage industry processing company currently in business. United Boiler provides a wide array of services to make sure these businesses’ boiler systems don’t experience downtime but are able to meet the high demands of these industries.
The food and beverage processing industries use steam and hot water in a multitude of applications during their workflow. These may include any (or all) of the following:
- Sterilization of utensils and food processing equipment
- Neutralizing antigens and microbiological threats in the food (for example, pasteurization and ultra-high temperature processing in producing dairy products)
- Distillation processes (for example, in certain types of beverages)
- Cooking or curing processes (some food products require steam and/or hot water as a direct part of their preparations)
- In-house power (some food processing machines are steam powered)
- Laundry (if done in-house)
- In some cases, heating of the factory itself
Needless to say, these processes can take a heavy toll on even the most robust steam boilers — and if a boiler fails and the plant goes offline, the losses can reach easily into hundreds or thousands of dollars per minute of downtime.
