Food processing has become one of the most rapidly expanding industries worldwide. It is the link between sourcing food from farmers or similar origins and the consumer. Boilers in food processing are a vital component of this industry. The food on your plate or supermarket shelves may not be consumable without boilers. So why are industrial boilers so important in food processing, and how do they make such a difference?
The Application of Industrial Boilers in the Food Processing Industry
Steam generation is arguably the most effective aspect of how industrial boilers are applied within the food processing industry. This steam is used in many steps of the overall process and ensures a safe end product for consumers worldwide to enjoy.
Multiple Types of Biomass Fuel
Industrial boilers also rely on multiple types of biomass fuel to get the desired results. Compared to other fuel sources, such as fossil fuels, the biomass fuel used by the industrial boilers we develop and supply offer an array of exciting and sustainable benefits for plants and facilities.
How Industrial Boilers Benefit Food Processing
Food safety is an essential step in food processing, and food processing boilers generate steam used to sanitize, cook, process, and package the food you find at the supermarket. The steam’s high temperatures are effective in killing bacteria but also helping to seal packages and make the food edible.
Consumers expect their food is safe to eat by being free of bacteria when they remove it from the packaging. Although cooking at home or a restaurant will also make food safe to eat, ready-to-eat meals must be prepared before unpacking, so there is no risk of common foodborne illnesses such as salmonella or norovirus.
Drying and Cooking
Besides sanitizing food products, steam generated by industrial boilers also benefits other aspects. For example, heat is used to dry wet foods and cook them through, making them ready to eat and convenient. This process also ensures they are easier to consume, avoiding chewiness that can make the food difficult to digest, which may increase the risk of choking.
It is not just the food that industrial boilers benefit, however. Industrial boilers sterilize equipment to prevent cross-contamination, as uncooked food will pass through the machinery. Any equipment or vessels that interact with uncooked food (especially the likes of chicken) must be thoroughly sterilized to ensure the food processing cycle is safe.
Steam is primarily used when packing canned preserves which have been exposed to the highest pressure steam. This guarantees both the can and its contents (such as soup, beans, or other canned goods) are free from bacteria that could lead to illnesses if consumed.
