Saving 40% on energy bills and solving heat issues in a new bakery factory

HEG Gıda is one of the biggest bakery products manufacturers in Turkey that produces bakery products for many famous brands. HEG Bakery Factory, with an area of 130,000 m², was built considering sustainability and high hygiene principles, therefore they needed a very hygienic air distribution solution that would prevent any health hazards, and would create perfect conditions for the products and employees working in various zones. Because of that, the company chose FabricAir’s system, as it met all the unique needs of the production facility.

In bakeries, air distribution has an immense influence on product quality. Due to improper air distribution, the dough may dry out quickly or baked products take too long to cool properly which may eventually result in production losses. In addition, the ovens or hot areas may lead to uncomfortably warm working conditions which have a negative effect on the comfort of the employees who are constantly standing near ovens or hot areas. A proper air distribution system protects the dough from drying out due to high air velocities from spot diffusion and facility managers can simply control the needed air temperature at all premises.

Eventually, hygiene in food production factory are of paramount importance. The risk of mold and microorganism formation must be eliminated. Since this risk cannot be completely eliminated with conventional metal systems, it is necessary to use a hygienic air distribution solution that complies with local food safety regulations.

“More and more food manufacturing companies are seeing the benefits of our systems and are choosing FabricAir solutions over conventional air distribution systems. Our engineers can design project-specific fabric ducts, solving all potential issues with one system and creating a comfortable work environment for its employees”, said Fikret Sahin, Managing Director at FabricAir Turkey.

FabricAir worked closely with HEG Gıda to design and deliver a tailor-made air distribution system. After the initial inquiry and a site visit, FabricAir engineers designed ducts from Combi 70 fabric with a Type 3 anodised aluminium rail suspension system which was delivered and installed quickly in line with the construction plan.

With the precise airflows and the lower pressure loss, HEG Gıda will save 40% on energy bills even having in mind huge heat load of ovens and other hot zones in the factory. A combination of MicroFlow and FabFlow flow models offered a comfortable work environment for the employees as well as optimal hygiene conditions for the products.
