Summary
The spray chilling process coats the carcass in a thin film of water, which is evaporated in place of moisture from the carcass. If managed correctly this process can reduce the wight loss seen in conventional chilling, and therefore increase the saleable weight. However, too much spray can result in a poor quality carcass, and possibly even a net increase in the weight of a carcass which is not usually tolerated by legislation and policies that protect consumers from being sold water in lieu of meat. This project focused on developing a model that can determine the oprimal settings for spray chilling in a large, high volume chiller--Summary
