QUORN FOODS LTD

Hunter Consultancy Services were appointed as Principal Designer for this project, which involved upgrading the chilling defrost capacity, to reduce the timescale required for defrosting the chiller coils. The chiller coils, situation in a spiral chiller were replaced with a new design.
