There are two critical components of food processing that can’t be controlled: food costs and fuel prices. Food production facilities rely on boilers for a multitude of applications, from sterilization to cooking. Typically, these boilers are fossil fuel-fired, which means production costs fluctuate along with fuel prices. As a result, product prices must also increase in order to maintain profit margins. However, there’s another option.
Using electric boilers and steam generators in the food processing industry offers better efficiency, less reliance on fossil fuels, lower energy costs and precise temperature control. An electric steam generator or boiler can be used for multiple applications, resulting in further cost savings. Since electric boilers are small and don’t require venting, it’s often possible to place multiple boilers in the same footprint of a larger fuel-fired boiler. This adds redundancy so production doesn’t have to stop for boiler cleaning or maintenance.
We specialize in designing and fabricating electric boiler packages that are tailored to fit our customers’ unique needs. Our customers count on us for solutions that provide building heat, hot water, pasteurization, sanitizing, sterilization, cooking, drying, packaging, cleaning, humidification and more. Electric boilers can also provide heat for ovens, fryers, steamers, jacketed kettles and other food preparation equipment.
