Refrigeration in Industrial Manufacturing


Precision in Design

In the world of industrial manufacturing, refrigeration can vary greatly from product to product, as well as in the form the product is to be refrigerated or frozen—in pieces, by the case, or entire pallets.

Our team of experts meticulously assesses the unique requirements of each project, considering factors such as product type, production volume, and temperature control needs. By configuring the refrigeration system to these specific parameters, we create an environment that maximizes energy efficiency while maintaining the integrity of the products being processed.

Energy Efficiency as a Priority

Energy efficiency is no longer just a desirable feature—it’s a necessity. Our design philosophy revolves around incorporating the latest advancements in refrigeration technology to minimize energy consumption and reduce environmental impact. From state-of-the-art compressors to innovative heat exchange systems, we prioritize solutions that meet stringent efficiency standards and contribute to sustainable and responsible manufacturing practices.


Compliance with Industry Standards

Navigating the complexities of regulatory requirements is a hallmark of our expertise. We ensure that every refrigeration system we design complies with industry standards and regulations, including those set by the USDA and FDA. These and applicable Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) are incorporated as required for each project.

Processing areas must be able to be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized. The building should be designed to eliminate cracks, crevices, and any surfaces that cannot be properly washed down and/or otherwise sanitized. For example, don’t use “open” piping runs that can collect dirt and debris within the processing area. A more desirable configuration would be to use pipe rack structures for distributing utility piping services within the interstitial space with vertical drops to individual pieces of equipment. Services can be nested in a compact piping array that typically includes electrical distribution, steam, water, and compressed air as long as the array is inspectable and cleanable. Distribution runs then extend from the central tray to the various pieces of equipment requiring services.


Technological Innovation

Refrigeration technology is continually evolving, and so are we. We stay at the forefront of technological innovation, incorporating the latest automation, monitoring, and control systems advancements. This not only enhances the reliability of refrigeration units, but also provides our clients with real-time insights into the performance of their systems, allowing for proactive maintenance and minimizing downtime.

In manufacturing plant design, the art and science of refrigeration is a balance of precision, energy efficiency, compliance, and innovation. As a design-build company committed to excellence, we take pride in our ability to master the intricacies of refrigeration to create facilities that exceed the expectations of our clients and regulatory authorities. From conceptualization to construction, our approach ensures that refrigeration is not merely a component of the facility but a cornerstone of its success.
