Handbook of Farm, Dairy and Food Machinery Engineeringis the essential reference for engineers who need to understand those aspects of the food industry from farm machinery to food storage facilities to the machinery that processes and packages our foods.

The process of getting food from "farm to fork," as the saying goes, involves more than planting, harvesting, shipping, processing, packaging and distributing though those are all key components. Effective and efficient food delivery systems are built around processes that maximize the effort while minimizing cost, time, and resource depletion.

This comprehensive reference is for engineers who design and build machinery and processing equipment, shipping containers, and packaging and storage equipment. It includes cutting-edge coverage of microwave vacuum application in grain processing, cacao processing, fruit and vegetable processing, ohmic heating of meat, facility design, closures for glass containers, double seaming, and much more.

  • Provides cross-topic information for translational research and potential application
  • Focuses on design and controls written for engineers by engineers always with practical applications in mind
  • Includes design of machinery and facilities as well as theoretical basis for determining and predicting behavior of foods as they are handled and processed

Editorial Reviews

"This handbook by and for engineers begins with chapters on the food engineer, food regulations, and food safety engineering. Then it considers equipment for various aspects of farming, among them planting cultivation, grain harvesting, and milking. The rest of the book - over 500 pages - describes equipment and techniques for processing food as it moves from production to consumption."--Reference & Research Book News, December 2013
