We have a plant where they process pigs. When the carcasses come off of the kill floor they go into a "hot box". This is where they all are all hanging and they are cooled from mid 90's down to 40 ish before they are moved to the next room.
Well as you can guess this hot moist air in that cool box is causing the bottom side of the evaporator pans to condensate. Once that steam rises and hits the bottom of that cold drain pan then the nightmare begins.
The USDA does not allow any drops of condensation to drip on the hanging piggies. This is an older plant and unfortunately the coils are mounted above the railing instead of off to the side like newer plants.
The customer is tired of getting written up for this and it has been going on for some time. Other facilities I know of actually wipe down the pans a few times a day with a pole and a rag.
Airflow airflow airflow. We have tried blowing a large amount of air across the bottoms of these pans and it has helped but not cured.
Anybody else fighting this battle?
