Wash-Down Food Processing and Packaging Cooling Solutions

Food Processing FacilityFood processing and packaging are highly automated industries. From line automation to X-ray detection, the seamless operation of electronics and equipment is paramount to their operations. New technology is constantly being added to the processing and packaging lines in order to ensure the best possible product can be consistently produced. These vital industries also carry stringent requirements and guidelines to ensure safety for the consumer, the product and the workers. Regular wash-down of equipment is required in many food processing plants as means of keeping the areas clean and free from debris or harmful bacteria. Many of the sensitive instruments must be enclosed in order to protect them from the high-pressure wash-down spray. While enclosing electronics or a piece of equipment will keep it dry and protected, it will also allow for the build-up of heat.

EIC Solutions specializes in equipment cooling solutions rated for complete wash-down. All of our ThermoTEC thermoelectric Air Conditioners are rated NEMA 4X, meaning they can be regularly washed down and will not fail or corrode as a result. These solid-state coolers will keep the equipment up and running during the peak of processing and packaging through thermostatically controlled cooling and heating. With no air exchange in or out of the air conditioner, they will also keep the equipment safe and dry, even during a full high-pressure wash-down. EIC’s Thermoelectric Cooling Solutions are perfect for:
