Details
  • Manages condensation formed during the hot cleaning process in cooled food processing facilities
  • Reduces labor involved in condensation and water management
  • Safe for use on Indirect Food Contact surfaces (CFR Title 21, parts 174-184)
  • Lessens the risk of falling drops contaminating food
  • Channels in film surface wick water via capillary action
  • Wicking action also increases evaporation rate
  • Combination of spreading and evaporation minimizes release of hanging droplets
  • Effective on both horizontal and vertical surfaces
  • Adheres to multiple surfaces including aluminum, galvanized and stainless steel, PVC and copper

3M™ Condensation Management Film (CMFi) manages intermittent condensation formed during the hot cleaning process in cooled food processing facilities. Channels in the film surface wick water via capillary action, which also increases the evaporation rate. These features lessen the risk of falling drops contaminating food in open environments and reduce labor associated with managing condensation.

3M™ Condensation Management Film is a condensate management system designed to manage intermittent pipe condensation that forms during the hot cleaning process in cooled food processing facilities. The surface of the film has channels that wick water via capillary action, which also increases the surface-to-volume ratio of the condensate, thereby increasing the evaporation rate. This combination of spreading condensation and increasing evaporation helps minimize the release of hanging droplets that might fall and contaminate food in open environments. These features may also improve productivity and reduce the labor associated with managing condensation.

Recommended Applications

  • Cooled food processing facilities
  • Useful in areas that experience intermittent high humidity situations and conditions are favorable to allow for evaporation
  • Condensate management in any facility where condensation and release of hanging droplets are an intermittent problem

NOTE:  This product is NOT for use in managing continuous condensation such as a cold pipe in a warm room or freezer tunnel entrances. This product does not contain an antimicrobial. THIS PRODUCT MAY CONTAIN NATURAL RUBBER LATEX WHICH MAY CAUSE ALLERGIC REACTIONS.
