Performed air movement studies in each facility which produced a graphic representation of air migration between spaces/occupancies related to open food product storage and processing, enclosed processing, packaging, and cleaning functions. The purpose of the studies was to identify needed mechanical revisions to improve asepsis control.
Analyzed, recommended, and designed operating environmental controls to improve large-scale meat smoking operations common to multiple facilities in two states. The purpose was to stabilize product humidity and throughput cycles.
Analyzed and engineered a modern solution for obsolete component clean-up areas to reduce fogging and correct pressurization problems.
Analyzed and engineered the solution to large-scale meat product production area problems related to post clean up surface condensation. This problem had been delaying production.
A new production cooling and ventilation system was designed to allow ideal processing temperatures and pressure relationships, as well as a separate system to allow proper ventilation during clean up and post clean up drying of the production space.
