Food & Drink Federation guidance on increasing the efficiency of systems. Refrigeration systems often represent the largest electricity user in food and drink factories. Keeping refrigeration operating at best efficiency is very important but is often ignored because users are often unsure how to check their refrigeration plant performance. To most end users the primary concern is plant reliability and, in particular, the ability to cool products to the desired temperature. If this is being achieved, then it is often assumed that the plant is operating in a satisfactory manner. But is the plant running efficiently? This Guide is aimed at users of industrial refrigeration systems in the food and drink sector. It provides advice about how to measure performance and how to make a refrigeration plant run as efficiently as possible. You do not need to be a refrigeration engineer to use this Guide.
