Optimize performance, energy efficiency and safety in your refrigeration system

Food safety has top priority among consumers today and tomorrow. Food safety in the dairy, meat, fisheries and other food industries relies on an unbroken and efficient cold chain from field to fork.

Danfoss helps bring food to consumers around the world by providing reliable, precise and efficient refrigeration systems for the food industry.

With Danfoss you will have a trusted partner with experience and know-how related to a wide range of food processing industries, e.g. breweries, dairies, fisheries and the meat industry and for cold storage as well as frozen foods.

Hygiene is a key word in modern food industry. When hygiene really matters and corrosion is a serious risk due to the harshness of the environment, stainless steel is your ideal choice for refrigeration systems. With the introduction of the Danfoss SVL SS and ICF SS Flexline™ components in stainless steel you will find what you need to obtain optimum hygiene and durable solutions.

The Danfoss valves and filters are designed for the majority of modern refrigerants operating with high pressures, including low GWP refrigerants as for instance CO2 and ammonia.

With Danfoss components you can optimize your refrigeration system as regards performance, energy efficiency and safety. All products come with a wide range of approvals and we can offer you turnkey solutions based on a long history of close cooperation with the food industry.

    Huge Water Savings from Food Processor’s Deep Well

    Food processing plants require a dependable source of water in large quantities for the washing and rinsing, steaming, cooking, and cooling of food, and during plant sanitation operations. That’s why a large Midwest food processor wanted full control over its water supply by constructing a private water well on its own property. However, what looked like a simple solution was quite complex below the surface — as the well driller discovered when he embarked on the project.

    Walk-in coolers: temperature controls

    This is the sixth in our series of articles on walk-in coolers and freezers.

    As seen throughout this article series, walk-ins are only as good as the components that are included in it. An important piece of the puzzle is the thermostat. A walk-in’s main job, not to put too fine a point on it, is to be cold. Maintaining the internal temperature is critical for meeting food safety standards and keeping product fresh for as long as possible. To do this, while also improving the energy efficiency of the system, a reliable thermostat is required.

    Walk-in coolers: thermostatic expansion valves and solenoid valves

    This is the fifth in our series of articles on walk-in coolers and freezers.

    As with any refrigeration system, controlling the flow of refrigerant is vital in making a walk-in cooler or freezer operate properly. Two of the most common types of refrigerant control valves are thermostatic expansion valves and solenoid valves.

    This is the fourth in our series of articles on walk-in coolers and freezers.

    As seen in the previous articles in this series, each component of a walk-in cooler or freezer plays a vital role in ensuring optimal performance. In this article, we will examine how regulating small aspects of a walk-in’s refrigeration system, like fan speed, can have a major impact on performance.
