Hygienic design as special project challenge
Glanbia strictly distinguishes between high- and low care areas in the building design. This displays the everyday production, one employee is only responsible for tasks within one hygienic area. This way it is possible to avoid time-consuming area changes. The main piping is located in a walk-on suspended ceiling above the production area. Sealed pipe openings, coming vertically from the suspended ceiling, are precisely connected to the plant modules such that there are nearly no horizontal routes within the high care area. For all frames in the high care area the team used flat steel profiles as neither for module frames nor at tube gantrys were hollow sections allowed. The electric-pneumatic installation was also very challenging. All cables leading from the low care area to the main cabinets and the on-site boxes are in an enclosed conduit system. The cables and air hoses are only open at the last few meters up to the sensor or device. Obviously, Ruland only used EHEDG-certificated stainless steel cable glands for the in- and outlets up to the closed system.
