2. Needs

For 25 years now, MITA Cooling Technologies and Voutsinas have collaborated to offer reliable solutions to customers in the food industry. MITA industrial chillers are part of the often turnkey solutions sold and installed by Voutsinas.

The coolers, especially PMS closed-loop towers, are placed to serve the various stages required for food preparation, such as pasteurization and sterilization (autoclave cooling).

Here are some of the main challenges.

  • Reliability: cooling towers and evaporative condensers must operate continuously and without interruption to ensure uninterrupted production in food plants.
  • Efficiency: cooling solutions must be energy efficient to reduce operating costs and environmental impact. This is especially for an environment such as Greece, with high average annual temperatures.
  • Customized design: each food plant has specific cooling needs. Therefore, solutions must be custom-designed to meet the specific flow rates and temperature jumps required.
  • Corrosion resistance: a distinguishing feature of MITA cooling towers is that the tower body is made of non-corrodible fiberglass, which provides greater durability to these systems.
  • Ease of maintenance: solutions must be designed for easy inspection and maintenance to ensure optimal operation over time.

3. Key success factors

The successful partnership between MITA Cooling Technologies and Voutsinas is based on several key factors.

  • Mutual collaboration: both companies work closely together to understand the specific needs of each customer and develop the optimal cooling solution.
  • Customized solutions: each cooling solution is custom designed to meet the specific needs of each plant.
  • Consulting during all phases: added value that the two partners are able to provide to the end customer, from selection of the best cooler through design to installation.
  • Excellent customer service: MITA can continuously provide food industry customers, through Voutsinas, with after-sales service, original spare parts for coolers, and technical support throughout the project life cycle.
