In the commercial, industrial, and manufacturing sectors, process piping is important. In this article, we familiarize you with essential aspects of process piping, learn how it differs from traditional plumbing, and delve into its contributions across food and beverage production.
Process piping transfers ingredients, batters, sauces, and other food products between vessels and processing equipment. For example, dough and batter must flow without excessive shearing or texture disruption and leavening. Viscous fluids like sauces, syrups, and glazes require slower laminar flows.
Piping systems maintain product integrity during transfers between mixing, cooking, forming, extruding, fermenting, and packaging equipment. Layouts ensure proper sequencing and merging of ingredients. Slopes facilitate drainage between batches.
