Pan Spray Demister Unit

Challenge:

CHW Design had identified the need for an effective way to reduce off spray produced from pan spray units in industrial bakeries. Traditionally pan spray units spray a non-stick solution into baking pans before bread dough is added. This pan spray procedure causes build-up on all surfaces in the immediate vicinity (e.g. on electrical motors, electrical trunking, walls, ceilings, floors, and other equipment). This is challenging from a cleaning and maintenance perspective.

Solution:

  • The entire pan spray system is enclosed by the CHW pan spray demister unit. The demister consists of a canopy with a large lid for easy access to the pan spray unit when maintenance and cleaning are required. ​
  • The volume surrounding the pan spray is constantly under negative pressure by means of a special purpose fan-filter unit used for removing the excess oil off spray mist, preventing it from escaping and settling on nearby surfaces. ​
  • The off spray is automatically captured from this process in an easy-to-empty wheeled container with a viewing window to determine when emptying is required. ​
  • This device is highly effective and can capture up to 1L of off spray daily preventing contamination of the factory. ​

Assessment:

  • Numerous Pan Spray Demister units have been successfully been installed nationally.
  • Factories have reported a significant impact the demister unit has had on preventing off spray contamination caused by pan spray units.
  • Factories have reported a drop in maintenance and cleaning.

Benefits:

  • Easy to maintain and clean.
  • Greatly reduces slipping hazards.
  • Prevents off spray build-up on surrounding equipment.
  • Ensures longevity of surrounding equipment.
  • Greatly reduces the constant need for cleaning and maintenance of the factory and reduces cleaning and maintenance costs.
