Processed meats are widely served all over the world, and with the increasing world population, this industry is also growing. The market value of processed meat was $ 714 billion in 2016 and is expected to reach 1.5 trillion by 2022.
Many scientific reports show that the raw material in this industry, such as cattle, is a major contributor to climate change. Whether this is true or not, this industry, like anyone else, has the responsibility to act sustainably.
exodraft’s heat recovery technologies provide a formidable basis for any company endeavouring to reduce its own negative climate impact.
There is a large selection of meat and poultry products on the market which can be categorised as fresh (raw), raw and smoked, smoked and cooked, cooked, dried/partially dried, fermented and prepared specialities.
Heat energy supply is essential in most of these categories and efficient use of heat should be a priority. Heat recovery and optimisation in the processes and equipment involved can be categorized as:
The production of smoked meat requires smokers to produce the product, and heat energy is an essential part of the process.
exodraft’s mechanical exhaust fan technology / chimney draught can improve the chimney draught, and by further implementing our heat recovery systems, heat dissipation in pipes and the smoker can be significantly improved.
exodraft’s technologies improve the process from a to z, are easy to use and do not compromise product quality.
Industrial extraction air can be regulated to improve the industrial indoor environment with optimum air pressure levels, humidity and temperature.
As the amount of heat-generating and heat-consuming equipment increases, exhaust heat plays an increasingly greater role in maintaining a good working environment and optimal conditions for heat-generating equipment.
Heat wasted this way can be recovered with exodraft’s mechanical chimney draught and heat recovery technologies.
Heat from stoves and possible boiler condensation can be recovered and reused. Stoves can operate more efficiently using exodraft’s mechanical exhaust fan technology / chimney draught.
Heat can be recovered from flue gases emitted from stoves using exodraft’s heat recovery systems. The accumulated recovered heat can, for example, be stored in a hot water tank for later use when the need arises.
Where flames are used to remove hair and feathers from meat or poultry, heat can be advantageously recovered. The recovered heat can be reused in the process itself by integrating the technologies – for example, cooling is necessary in a slaughterhouse and this can be supplemented with heat-driven absorption coolers.
Recovered heat can also be applied to industrial cleaning, heating of utility water, etc. In addition, the surplus heat can be sold to the district heating system.
