TIROLMILCH / WÖRGL
With its roughly 5,000 Tyrolean milk suppliers and an annual throughput of about 220 million kilograms of milk, the Austrian Tirol Milch cooperative is one of the largest dairy companies in Austria. With many years of experience and tradition, as well as state-of-the-art technology, the cooperative aims to guarantee the best product quality for its customers.
The task formulation:
Several years ago, Tirol Milch already opted to utilize the Glasbord® wall panels from Hydewa. The FRP panels from a competitor were used for a later construction, which subsequently unattractively discoloured after some time through the high ammonia loading in the ripening rooms of the cheese farm. Because the company never encountered any problems with the Glasbord® products, due to the surface finishing of the material, Hydewa was commissioned to carry out the ripening room refurbishing.
The hygienically perfect solution: Glasbord® by Hydewa
Since Tirol Milch never uses any preservatives in its milk products, the adherence to the highest hygiene standards is already an essential factor during the manufacturing and processing. One of the prerequisites for this is that the rooms can be easily cleaned and disinfected – a requirement that is optimally guaranteed by Surfaseal, the pore-free surface finishing of the Hydewa panels. In addition, all supply lines were routed within a closed system. Through this, it is possible to avoid drilling through walls, and thus effectively prevent a condensation and mould growth. An optimal air circulation should also be achieved through rounded corners, thus reducing the occurrence of turbulences.
The technical data:
Project: New furnishing of ripening rooms (humidity 96 to 98 %)
“Material: Glasbord® sandwich elements in different thicknesses from 60 to 240 mm for wall and ceiling surfaces: approx. 2,500 m² approx. 25 m round corners 200 m² direct mounting
The satisfied customer:
“Whit Glasbord® there were never any complaints.”
