High-speed doors improve efficiency in food processing plants

Food Processing Operations Tip – High-Speed Doors Maintain Food Integrity

High-speed doors improve efficiency in food processing plantsMaintaining efficiency and safe transportation of food products is a must in the food industry. Especially when operating within low-temp conditions.

Nergeco High-Speed Doors are a key component in consistent climate control and contamination management.  It’s all about lean thinking; smart optimization and cutting waste.

Door Speed – Getting in and out quickly maximizes climate control

High-speed doors maximize climate control for food processing operationsNo matter whether food is frozen or fresh, keeping the environment cold throughout the entire product handling operation maintains quality and reduces waste.

Climate must be maintained. You can chill out since our high-speed doors open and close in seconds, preserving cold air inside high-traffic areas.  Keeping your refrigeration contained inside helps protect your product and operating budget… well, as long as your door moves fast enough!

Door Speed – Boosts effort to reduce contamination

Air flow and traffic movement will cause an amount of contaminants to move with the product as it moves through the operation chain.

Why risk more contamination? There are many practices to reduce contaminants to an acceptable level including selecting the right door.  Minimal door exposure time and a tight seal deliver consistent climate control AND reduce debris.  Door options are available for high to low contact risk.

Door Speed – Amplifies food safety

If a cold storage door is damaged, dented, or even misaligned causing gaps, the door will not be sealed properly.  This can result in energy loss and threat to product quality.

High-speed doors are fast!  Swift entrance and exits reduce the risk of damage to your doors and the roll-up design provides a tight seal.
