Fermentation in Food Processing

fermentation temperature control units, biotechnology fermentation

The process of fermentation is a segment of the food processing industry. Food processing is the transformation of raw ingredients into marketable food products. Fermentation in this context is a process that converts sugar to acids, gases, or alcohol which commonly occurs in yeast and bacteria. To many people, fermentation simply means the production of alcohol where grains and fruits are fermented to produce beer and wine.

Fermentation is not only used in the food industry but is also widely common in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical industry.

The process of fermentation requires precise temperature control. Applications that are used are mainly jacketed vessels, tanks, mixers, reactors and blenders. Delta T Systems temperature control equipment is connected to these applications and provides exact heating and/or cooling throughout the process.

Many units are built to customer specification with stainless steel and wash down construction including NEMA 4X electrical panels.
