What needs to be conditioned in the Food & Beverage infrastructure?
In the food and beverage industry there are complex automation systems, robots and modular, flexible systems (e.g. conveyor belts for glass and plastic bottles…) that require electrical components to carry out production, processing and packaging tasks. These need to be cooled in order to keep the working temperature within certain limits by protecting them from excessive heat, as well as from contaminants in the environment, while meeting strict hygiene standards.
But not only that, a switch cabinet can be provided at the edge of the production line, for example to cool servers for managing production or logistics data, which individually have low thermal loads. Control cabinets not only require cooling of the internal components for correct and efficient operation, but also high reliability, efficiency, flexibility and connectivity, and are fully part of Industry 4.0 and edge computing systems.
