Dual Pan and Lid Cooling Tunnels

Challenge:

Cost-effective solution – Ambient cooling and not conditioned. Customer needs required development and manufacture of dual lid and pan cooling system with a high rate of cooling, limited energy consumption, and small footprint. Close work was performed with industrial fan companies to maximize airflow on the product for maximum cooling and efficiency. Easy access to the product was highly important (as the system is also the pan and lid storage loading and unloading section), while still maintaining desired cooling results.

Solution:

  • A Dual cooling tunnel manufactured completely from stainless steel 304.
  • Successfully cools both pans and lids with ambient air and not conditioned.
  • HACCP approved as the air only comes in contact with the underside of the pans and the top of the lids.
  • No maintenance.
  • Easily accessible hatches for cleaning convenience.

Assessment:

  • After installation testing and full production operation, it was determined that the cooling system performed above expectations.
  • ΔT of up to 40ᵒC was achieved on pans and lids over an effective cooling distance of 10m without compromising cycle times.

Benefits:

  • High rate of cooling
  • Unrestricted lid and pan access
  • Modular design
  • Easily maintained and cleaned
  • Slim design with a minimal footprint
  • Rugged design for longevity
  • Even airflow
