Food Processing and Cold Storage
Food Processing and Cold Storage
Chardon knows the importance of efficiency when it comes to food production. One hour of down time could result in losses over thousands of dollars for your company.
That’s why we offer comprehensive water treatment services that aim to improve your production efficiency through more efficient cooling systems and water treatment methods.
Cooling Tower Water Treatment
The food production industry relies on consistent refrigeration and cold storage. Often, food processing organizations use a combination of cooling towers and ammonia compressors for temperature control purposes. While cooling towers of fluid coolers can be used to modulate air, they’re more commonly used in broader air conditioning applications. Ammonia compressors are more commonly used as a refrigerant for cold-storage in food processing.
Cooling towers can develop bacteria and other contaminants too small to be filtered out Ammonia compressors, can leak ammonia into water supplies, corroding water lines and doing serious long-term damage to water systems.
For these reasons, effective water treatment for cooling towers and ammonia compressors is essential. This is where Chardon can help.
We offer comprehensive cooling tower water treatment services that aim to improve your production efficiency in applications using ammonia compressors. Our expert, ISO-certified water technicians will work with you to develop a customized chemical treatment plan that will provide an effective solution for contamination while setting your system up for prevention in the future.
Food Grade Steam Boiler Water Treatment
The two primary concerns for steam boilers are scale and corrosion, each of which comes with their own set of issues.
The accumulation of scale inside a boiler has an insulating effect on the boiler itself and can cause pressure buildup throughout boiler components. Pressure differentials as a result of scale buildup can ultimately result in the warping and rupture of boiler tubes, while the scale itself can reduce heat transfer efficiency and compromise the efficiency of your boiling system. This can mean an increase in wasted energy, leading to increased fuel bills and decreasing amounts of steam.
Corrosion is the deterioration of boiler parts in the presence of corrosive elements. It can appear either generally across the entire surface of a component or as pits in a component. Pitting is more harmful and causes heavier damage in a single area. This can lead to total part failure, which may result in steam trap failure, leakage and wasted energy. Chardon can help minimize these risks through comprehensive food-grade steam boiler water treatment strategies. Our experienced technicians will identify any signs of corrosion or scale through testing and analysis and attack any problems with the appropriate food-grade boiler water treatment chemicals.
Our full-service treatment program will not only protect your boiler, but will also set up your steam system to last as long as possible and prevent incidents in the future.
Keeping production lines running at peak efficiency is important in today’s competitive environment. Chardon specializes in servicing the food production industry and understands the critical role ammonia refrigerators, chillers and boilers play in your manufacturing operation.
Together we will develop a customized water treatment program to meet your specific needs. Chardon’s ISO-9001 certified service technicians will partner with your maintenance staff to ensure your treatment program runs smoothly, conserves chemicals and ultimately results in clean, efficient systems.
We make your concerns our priority.
