Peters Ltd. Food Processing PlantBalcatta, Australia

The project involved the extension and upgrade of a food processing facility. Provision was made for raw material delivery, coldstorage of material and product, processing facilities, product despatch and ancillary functions.
Briefing criteria required that the project was to achieve:
  • Continuation of processing on project site and another site during installation and relocation of processing equipment
  • A facility which permitted expansion of all production functions
  • Organised and continuous flow patterns with the manufacturing process
  • Structured flow of personnel and vehicles into and around the site
  • Rationalisation of raw materials receipt and product despatch facilities.
  •  The criteria which were applied to achieve these elements were:
    • Strict application of hygiene codes
    • Maintenance of a safe and comfortable working environment
    • Compliance with programming and budgetary targets.
    A principal feature of the project is the ammonia refrigeration system which provides -48°C, -40°C and -10°C expansion systems. The compressor arrangement provides sufficient peak capacity, diversity for various process demands and compressor configuration to ensure reliable service. The refrigeration plant provides simplicity, flexibility and control at low capital cost and minimum energy consumption.
