A clean room is a room specially designed so that the concentration of airborne particles within the space is kept under control. It is engineered and utilised as a room to minimise in feed, generation and retention of particles that may present a risk of contamination of a product.
A clean room achieves this control by filtering the air with diverse particulate retention capacities, controlling the temperature and the relative humidity of the air. As well as by managing the room’s level of overpressure and managing its airflow.
How are they used in the food processing industry?
In the food industry, a clean room, such as the Blu Series Air Handling Unit by Frigomeccanica, generates an environmental condition that is necessary for keeping intact the organoleptic characteristics of packaged foods. This keeps the food unaltered and ensures the food is able to achieve a longer shelf life.
They are also used for:
- A room for slicing and packing meats and cold cuts
- A room for cutting and packaging cheese
- A room for processing perishable vegetables and packaging salads
- A room for preparing and packaging ready-made-meals, sandwiches and fresh foods
What are organoleptic characteristics?
Organoleptic characteristics is the aspects of food, water and other consumables that an individual will experience via the senses – taste, sight, smell and touch. Organoleptic characteristics are an essential component for the quality control of foods, as customers will perceive the product quality with their senses.
