Patterson Fans are the Fan of Choice for Condensation Control in America's Food Industry


US food processing plants, producing everything from meats, poultry, canned and frozen goods to candy --
utilize Patterson Fans in their arsenal to control condensation. Patterson Fans are an excellent economical way to reduce condensation.

Blythewood, SC - Many major food companies in the USA producing everything from meats, poultry, canned and frozen goods to candy -- utilize Patterson Fans in their arsenal to control condensation. When operating in these specialized environments, Patterson Fans are recommended to be either constructed of galvanized or stainless steel hulls and components--complete with wash down motors for continuous duty.

All air contains some amounts of water vapor in every environment. Water vapor exerts a partial pressure, which increases proportionally as the water concentration increases. At any given temperature there is a limiting maximum vapor pressure, called the saturated vapor pressure, beyond which the air cannot hold any more water vapor.
Air at a given temperature coming into contact with a cooler surface, is then cooled locally to the temperature of the surface. If the saturated vapor pressure of the cooled air is less than the original vapor pressure, the excess water is deposited on the surface in water droplets known as condensation. The surface temperature at which condensation forms is called the dew point. (Think of a glass of ice water in your
hands on a warm day.)The ratio of water vapor pressure at room temperature to the saturated water vapor pressure at that temperature is known as "relative humidity." (RH)

Food industries are acutely aware that high humidity and condensation will lead to unsafe product and working conditions. Complications of high humidity and condensation include undesirable biological growth (mold and bacterial) causing a variety of mold/bacterial born illnesses. Symptoms of such environmental illnesses are generally diverse, including: headaches, unusual fatigue, burning irritated eyes,
skin irritations, itching, nasal congestion, sore irritated throats and other respiratory complications.

Food industries also know by adding internal environmental circulation to their mix (including yet not limited to: dehumidifiers, ventilation systems, and temperature controls) condensation can be substantially reduced. Patterson's high velocity fans circulate air and reduce internal environmental climate differences.

By maintaining a uniform indoor air temperature, condensation has less of a chance to form. Patterson Fan's word of mouth reputation, developed over 20 years providing the best "condensation buster fans," has added to Patterson's success within the US food industry. When condensation is a threat, Patterson's team of regional territory managers know, from years of experience, just which fans and mounts to
recommend that will reduce condensation significantly.

The entire industrial line of 14, 18", 22", 26", 30" and 34" high velocity fans are available as corrosion resistant galvanized fans. Galvanized OSHA approved finger guards come standard with the condensation busters along with all fan hardware. Blades are galvalume. Patterson offers the 22" fan for the stainless steel unit. Patterson's galvanized or stainless steel high velocity fans are extremely economical to operate
with a relatively small amount of energy required for each fan.
