The food handler of the Food Safety Act must ensure that the cooling unit has a guard against “hot spots” in cooling units by the following guidelines.
I’ve worked in a food establishment for almost two years. I’ve been one of the main guys that keep the coolers (heat exchangers) in check, however, I’ve never once witnessed a “hot spot.” A hot spot is a localized temperature over the top of the cooling unit. The problem is that they can be easily overlooked and as a result, the unit can overheat a little bit.
Heat can be a real problem in many of our homes. There are cases of food safety regulations that limit the amount of heat that can be added on top of the temperature control. This means that the cooler portion of a food facility must be able to have as much cooling as possible. This is a serious problem when it comes to food handlers as they are responsible for not only the safety of the meat, but the safety of the food itself.
The food handler is the component that receives the food or other liquid product and distributes it to the cooling units, and then the cooling units distribute the product to the cooling towers. The food handler is also responsible for cleaning and disinfecting any equipment or utensils that comes into contact with the food product.
This is a common misconception that most food handlers have about cooling systems. However, it is not a valid assumption. The most common cause of hot spots in cooling systems is that the heat is not being efficiently extracted from the unit. Most of that heat will be dissipated through your hands and face as well as the cooling fins.
The food handler should guard against “hot spots” in cooling units by: 1. Protecting the cooling unit from damage by placing the cooling unit in a protective position. 2. Protecting the cooling unit from damage by placing the cooling unit in a non-protective position. 3. Controlling the cooling unit to control the cooling of the unit. 4. Protecting the cooling unit from damage by placing a stand-by cooling unit in contact with the cooling unit.
Hot spots are a type of electrical anomaly in a heat exchanger caused by overheating. They are a common problem in air conditioning systems. They can be caused by a short in a condenser, a short in an evaporator coil, or a short in a duct running to the system. They can also be caused by the system’s cooling fan not operating properly.
Hot spots can be a real challenge to the food handler. The task of cooling food is challenging on many fronts, from high temperatures to low air flows. In the food processing industry, such hot spots are a constant issue that has been known to cause serious problems. The food handler is responsible for preventing these conditions from occurring. The food handler should guard against hot spots in cooling units by: 1. Keeping the cooler and food hot at the same time 2.
