How to prevent computers from becoming a source of pollution in the food manufacturing industry
Time:2021-01-05  Views:

At present, many large-scale food processing plants use MES systems. In the system, computers have become a key organizational part of the food production process.


However, during use, the computer will face the risk of contamination from dust and food residues. This makes them a hotbed of bacteria, which can be quickly transferred by food and employees, resulting in serious pollution of the entire food factory.

How to prevent computers from becoming a source of pollution in the food manufacturing industry?


Regarding food pollution, it undoubtedly comes from production facilities and equipment. Therefore, many food factories have certain technical parameter requirements when purchasing production equipment. For the equipment, 304 and 316 stainless steel are mandatory. However, some of the most common ways of spreading bacteria and viruses include "from hand to food" to "from hand to another food".

If the pollution source occurs in the food processing workshop, the food factory will not only face comprehensive pollution to be dealt with, which may result in complete shutdown of operations, but also waste a lot of food and ingredients.

From computer food contamination


In an era of advanced information, a large number of food processing plants have been spawned. Facing changes in market demand, they all have a common feature of centralized production. At this time, more and more smart factories have applied SRM (supply ecology), MES (manufacturing), DMS (daily management), WMS (warehouse management), QMS (quality management), and SCADA (data acquisition and monitoring) systems.

However, the transfer of bacteria and viruses from computers to food and vice versa is a very real problem. The exposed ordinary computer system itself is a magnet that attracts dust, and in the food environment where computers are used every day, the cumulative risk of food residues is high.


For these problems, it is necessary for smart factories to solve the problems fundamentally. At this time, computers dedicated to food factories were born in this era.

The special computer for food factories is made of 304 or 316 stainless steel casing, and the sealing grade of the whole machine is above IP65, which can prevent dust and food residues from entering the computer.


At the same time, the antibacterial properties of food-grade 304/316 stainless steel make the shell naturally resist the accumulation of food residues and bacteria. In addition, it also prevents the spread of bacteria from the computer to the hand, and then into the food, and ultimately prevents the spread of bacteria from contamination and production shutdown.


A computer with a good level of closure has very low daily maintenance costs, and can be cleaned with chemicals that prevent the spread of bacteria and viruses without any risk of corrosion. The waterproof performance of the stainless steel housing is beneficial to food manufacturing facilities and equipment because they can withstand the jet washing process from clean water.


The design of the waterproof computer allows the computer to operate under various conditions. For example, one of the most common problems in refrigerated food processing facilities is condensation. Not only will water collect in puddles and form droplets on the pipes, but the moisture in the air is also very dense.


Collard waterproof computer has a wealth of I/O interfaces, and also has a physical exhaust valve, which effectively solves the problem of water vapor caused by thermal expansion and contraction.

There is no doubt that condensed water can damage computer electronic equipment, but another headache for food facilities is that condensed water can carry bacteria, which can deposit on the computer and may cause the transfer of bacteria from the computer to the food.


Condensation and humidity are not the end of the challenge of using computers in food factories. For example, meat factories are required to operate at sub-zero temperatures determined by food authority regulations. Maintaining the "cold chain", breaking the cold chain and allowing bacteria to grow on the meat requires freezing temperatures.


Then, the meat handler comes into contact with the computer and becomes a breeding ground for bacteria. Then there is a domino effect. Throughout the working day, when several meat handlers visited the computer, the spread of microorganisms such as Salmonella caused high levels of pollution.


It cannot be overemphasized that exposed computers in food processing plants are harmful to health. By making the computer a germ-free area, customers can prevent the transfer of bacteria from the "dirty" computer from causing the device to shut down completely.

The added value of using waterproof computers in food manufacturing


In addition to preventing food contamination caused by the spread of bacteria from computers to food, the real value of adding waterproof computers in food production workshops is that they can prevent food residues and dust from entering. This prevents the accumulation of grease, dirt and dust, which can cause irreparable damage to the computer system.

If a waterproof computer is the core of food processing operations, then the financial impact and the impact on the customer's overall business reputation need not be considered whether a computer failure will stop the customer's entire production process.


In essence, waterproof computers are not short-term repairs. They bring long-term stability to computer stations. They not only prevent computers from becoming a potential health hazard, but also prevent them from entering the "computer graveyard."
