Food Science and Technology
The component parts of a manufacturing system are important. Without
peripherals and services such as pumps, boilers, power transmission,
water treatment, waste disposal, and efficient lighting, the system will
collapse. Food Plant Engineering Systems, Second Edition fills the
need for a reference dealing with the bits and pieces that keep systems
running, and also with how the peripheral parts of a processing plant fit
within the bigger picture.
The author has gathered information from diverse sources to introduce
readers to the ancillary equipment used in processing industries,
including production line components and environmental control
systems. He explores the buildings and facilities as well as the way
various parts of a plant interact to increase plant production. This new
edition covers the systems approach to Lean manufacturing, introducing
Lean principles to the food industry. It also addresses sustainability and
environmental issues, which were not covered in the first edition.
Written so readers with only basic mathematical knowledge will benefit
from the content, the text describes measurements and numbers as
well as general calculations, including mass and energy balances. It
addresses the properties of fluids, pumps, and piping, and provides a
brief discussion of thermodynamics. In addition, it explores electrical
system motors, starters, heating, and lights; heating systems and
steam generation; cooling and refrigeration systems; and water, waste,
and material handling systems. The text also deals with plant design,
including location, foundations, floors, walls, roofs, drains, and
insulation. The final chapter presents an overview of safety and
OSHA regulations, and the appendices provide conversion tables
and an introduction to mathematics.
