Steam boilers have been used in the food and drink industry for many years to generate steam and hot water for use in processing, cooking and sanitisation.
The ability to eliminate microbiological risks in food have made steam boilers the ideal choice for processes including the pasteurisation of dairy products, baby food production and the sterilisation of packaged food, as well as industrial bakeries, butcheries, drink producers and processed food manufacturers.
“This partnership reflects a significant leap in energy provision with three key industry players joining forces to bring cost, environmental benefits and energy savings to the UK’s food and beverage manufacturers which use steam as part of their production processes and sanitisation,” said Neil Murphy, MD, AvantiGas.
“We are delighted to be working alongside two established manufacturers who have a combined 70 years expertise to collectively deliver the very best in cost-effective steam boiler technology.”
The steam boilers by the AvantiRenewables collaboration include brand new technology, high efficiency and low carbon energy, and capital funding. It also predicts CO2 savings of around 2,000 tonnes each year per MW of installed capacity (approximate figure when replacing biomass pellets for Heavy Fuel Oil).
The AvantiRenewables biomass fuel supply chain operation offers optional LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) back up supplies.
