Dehumidification in Candy Processing
For over 50 years, Bry-Air has been the leader in dehumidification solutions for the most complex industrial applications. We deeply understand that proper humidity management is critical for candy production – controlling moisture ensures optimal product quality, processing efficiency, food safety and equipment protection.
The Far-Reaching Impact of Relative Humidity
Maintaining the ideal 30%-50% relative humidity (RH) range in your candy processing facility delivers tremendous benefits across all aspects of operations:
- Exceptional Product Quality – Low humidity prevents sugar bloom, minimizes stickiness, maintains texture integrity and delivers candy that looks and tastes fantastic. This leads to higher customer satisfaction and repeat sales.
- Maximized Yields – Controlling moisture migration prevents clumping, reduces waste and rework. With less discarded candy, your overall yields are maximized.
- Optimized Processing Speed – Dry, low humidity conditions allow significantly faster production speeds. Faster candy flow minimizes changeovers and downtime in wrapping, packing and enrobing equipment.
- Maximized Food Safety & Shelf Life – Humidity encourages microbiological growth of bacteria, yeasts and molds that critically reduce shelf life and endanger health. Maintaining an appropriately low RH range helps satisfy food safety requirements.
- Protected Equipment & Maximum Uptime – Preventing condensation and corrosion with humidity control keeps sensitive processing and packaging equipment in top working order for maximum operational uptime.
