Specialized Knowledge

The design of prepared food facilities presents challenges unique to the refrigerated food industry. The need for both cooking and chilling or freezing products in the same facility can create issues with condensation. Condensation is caused when water vapor comes into contact with another gas, fluid, or solid that has a temperature below the dew point of the vapor. Undesired condensation can form when water vapor penetrates the ceilings and walls of refrigerated rooms through pinhole-size openings, or it can be drawn in by the flow of air into the cold room through openings such as doors. Water vapor can also originate from production equipment (such as kettles or ovens) or when the product itself gives off moisture.
