Case studies – Temporary Climate Solutions

Excess moisture in a food processing plant can cause disaster

Moist air contains raw bacteria which can increase the risk of contamination of products during production and storage. In a dry environment, bacterial growth is inhibited.

Polygon Temporary Humidity Control Service provides a solution for confectionary manufacturers. Products such as sugar, flour, cocoa powder, starches, powdered milk, fruit powder and starch syrup are all susceptible to moisture either during transportation, storage or while being used in the production process. Moisture can be problematic in various production processes including sugar coating, wrapping boiled sweets or baking bread. Moist air contains raw bacteria which can increase the risk of contamination of products during production and storage. In a dry environment, bacterial growth is inhibited. Utilising experience in controlling humidity, all Polygon’s technicians have a vast knowledge of what is required to achieve the optimum environment for the confectionary industry.

Chip production

Temporary humidity control is necessary during periods of the year when moisture content is at its highest. The most effective way to protect raw materials and products during production, storage and transport is to control the surrounding environment. The Polygon dry air system is the simplest, most precise way of achieving and controlling the required humidity conditions. Polygon can provide temporary customdesigned dehumidification solutions for all areas of production including silos, production facilities, warehouses and transport. Additionally, temporary cooling and heating equipment can be integrated into a complete system to help meet the detailed specifications and needs of the contractors, owners and engineers. Some products need to be produced and packed in environments with relative humidity levels below 25%. The equipment provides a climate that reduces moisture levels to a point where products can be manufactured without any loss of quality and also provides consistent and dependable dry air at the dew-point that is required.

Polygon technicians then service and check the equipment, ducting and ancillary items prior to delivery. It is vital that the dehumidifier is sanitized and the ducting is new to eliminate the threat of contamination. The equipment is then placed in a designated area, positioned close to a power supply and set up to maximise the safe operation of the unit. Polygon state-of-the-art desiccant dehumidification systems are utilised to deep dry the ambient air in the facility which ensures that moisture sensitive products being manufactured are processed in the most optimum environment. Polygon provides a turnkey solution with well engineered equipment, offering around the clock service that is unmatched in the industry.
