    Gas or Electric? Narrowing Down the Search for an Industrial Oven

Gas or Electric? Narrowing Down the Search for an Industrial Oven

ovens are used for a variety of applications, such as aging, annealing, baking,
bonding, curing, drying, homogenizing, normalizing, pre-heating, tempering, sterilizing,
and stress relieving. There is a range of ovens on the market, differing in
design and operation. Deciding which oven is best suited for a particular
application can take time and research. One of the main questions that must be
answered is whether the facility would benefit from an electric or gas-fired

Gas or Electric?

deciding between gas-fired and electric ovens, manufacturers must take into
account the facility’s capabilities, the integrity of the product, and the
production budgets. The following benefits of both gas and electric models […]

The CMM Group: Our Hottest Posts and Guides of 2019

As a leader in pollution control and thermal processing equipment, The CMM Group knows a thing or two about what’s hot in the manufacturing world. It’s been a busy year, but as we close out another year (and decade) as a leading provider of pollution control equipment, ovens, dryers, and food manufacturing systems, we would like to take a second to look back, thank our clients, and offer a few insights you may have missed.

Today, we would like to share some of our top resources, namely our most popular articles this year and the ones on the way up. […]

Does Your Coffee Manufacturing Plant Meet EPA Standards?

Coffee manufacturers are often subject to public scrutiny as consumers look for organic products and agricultural techniques that do not negatively impact local habitats. However, roasting facilities are also subject to scrutiny within their industry. Manufacturers must adhere to strict emission regulations set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). These emission limits are in response to the harmful particulate matter (PM) and volatile organic compounds (VOC) that get released during the roasting process.

Understanding what pollutants are released and how to reduce harmful emissions can help manufacturers satisfy EPA regulations and focus on farming and production.

Building a Sustainable Manufacturing Operation

In today’s litigious and media-driven landscape, in which a disparaging article can cause boycotts and potentially destroy businesses, companies in all industries need to stay ahead of the curve. It’s no longer about global warming, it’s about climate change. Paired with this, it’s no longer enough to do just enough to remain compliant, you need to show that you are a leader in your field.

Over the years, we have looked to highlight the risks of noncompliance, discuss the increased media focus on an ever-consolidating paint industry, explore the questionable-yet-creative ways activists and attorneys are attacking compliant businesses, and offer […]

How to Optimize the Performance of Your Rotary Concentrator

Manufacturing plants that generate a low to moderate amount of pollutants can reduce operating costs by using a rotary concentrator for VOC and air pollutant abatement.
How a Rotary Concentrator Works
A rotary concentrator efficiently removes and destroys volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and air pollutants with a two-step process.

A ductwork collection system in a rotary concentrator captures exhaust air, which is then passed through a high-efficiency filter to remove particulates.

Next, the airstream is directed through the rotating concentrator wheel, where pollutants are adsorbed by the hydrophobic Zeolite media, which is permanently bonded to a corrugated mineral fiber substrate inside the rotor.

The […]

The CMM Group Releases Guide to Infrared Cheese Melters

Frozen meals and pizzas are a staple in the grocery store, and the market has evolved. From their earliest iterations—oven-heated ‘TV Dinners’ developed and introduced in 1953—to the variety of products available today, the frozen food market has continued to grow.

Whether in economic booms or busts, consumers turn to frozen products as both a cure to their hectic lifestyles and an affordable alternative to going out. In fact, the frozen foods market has experienced a resurgence in recent years, growing 2.6% to $57 billion annually in 2018, according to the American Frozen Food Institute (AFFI) and Food Marketing Institute […]
