Do any of you have any good ways of controlling condensation in comminution processes, i.e., product milling?
Product gets hot in the process of milling to a smaller size. Milled product is collected in plastic drums with new food-grade liners. The dilemma we sometimes have is that we want to have the milled product covered, but when we cover it, there can be considerable condensation on the inside of product bags at the top. If we don't cover it, then there is less control over contamination that might get in. Product takes hours to cool off to being near room temperature; it can take overnight.
Right now we are trying to reach a happy medium and have tried leaving the bags open but folded over so moisture can mostly escape, but we still see condensation occurring. We would like to mitigate the condensation further.
We are manufacturing dietary supplements in the United States and are under 21 CFR Parts 111, 117, 121, etc.
