The demand for Kellogg’s products is growing around the world, with an expected need to increase the production rate of some products by 30%. Cooling is a known bottleneck in the manufacturing of Pringle chips, so there is a need to find an efficient way to cool the chips before seasoning and the seaming of the can. The previous design is subjected to material and energy balance analysis. To address this issue a modification to the process is designed and recommended for implementation. This improved knowledge will lead to optimization of equipment performance and minimization of capital expenses.
