Flash-Cooling Project wins Pump Award

Sterling-SIHI received the Technical Innovation of the Year – Projects prize for their bespoke flash cooling solution in Soreen Bakery at this year’s Pump Industry Awards, held in Coventry. This award is for the most innovative pump/project installation or service introduced onto the market within the last 12 months. Led by Shaun Hampson, the Sterling-SIHI team was selected as project partner following a thorough evaluation process. Sterling-SIHI was commissioned to replace an entire vacuum system on-site at Soreen, getting rid of the existing cooling water system for effluent treatment, cooling, and maintenance reasons. The bakery deemed hygiene and quiet operation without acoustic hoods as necessary in order to promote an open and hygienic environment, void of bacteria. Within the four month specified, the project was installed, delivered, and producing vacuum 100% on time. The site now produces almost twice the amount of loaves with less production and storage defects. To date, the vacuum system has experienced more than 30,000 cycles without problems. The Pump Industry Awards are designed to support the top practice within the UK pump industry in the areas of supply, manufacture and innovation. Customer service, energy saving initiatives, industry recognition, technical expertise and companies’ manufacturing capabilities are all assessed.
