Precautions to Minimize COVID 19 Spread in Food Processing Plants

Food processing plant workers have been impacted by the spread of COVID-19

COVID 19 Food Processing Guidelines


OSHA and the CDC have issued interim guidance to meat and poultry processors (which includes guidance on the operation of HVAC systems): 


“Facilities should consider consulting with a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning engineer to ensure adequate ventilation in work areas to help minimize workers’ potential exposures


Understand how our critical process air handlers help:

  • Hygienic air handlers increase air changes in processing rooms ensuring adequate filtered ventilation in work areas to help minimize potential exposures. 
  • Clean-Up cycle operating mode purges work areas with fresh heated outside air, quickly drying the area and exhausting room air during room washdown and disinfecting.
