Whitchurch: making cheese and telling us the time

Whitchurch’s recorded history dates to Roman times. Its claim to world fame, however, comes from clocks and cheese. J.B. Joyce, founded in Whitchurch in 1690, claims to be the world’s oldest clockmaker. Perhaps their most famous work is inside the Queen Elizabeth II Tower, more commonly — if incorrectly — known as Big Ben, in Westminster.

Since the 18th century, Whitchurch has also been associated with cheese. Its regular cheese fairs established its reputation, which only grew when the railways allowed them to easily sell cheese across the country. Even today, the town remains a centre for cheese manufacture and a major centre for food logistics services.

Compressed air in Whitchurch

Although cheesemaking has a long history, it benefits from the modern application of compressed air. One reason is that making cheese is delicate, and making the perfect cheese demands precise processes.

Compressed air is used to ensure clean environments and to perform processes using air, rather than physical implements that risk contamination. Even though cheese typically has a long shelf-life, using nitrogen to flush packaging before sealing helps to keep it fresh even longer.


What is energy recovery for air compressors?

As air is compressed, the air molecules move faster in a smaller space, generating heat. In most applications, this heat is not needed, so energy recovery captures it, allowing it to be used for other purposes, like heating water. Energy recovery can be very efficient, significantly reduce energy costs, and benefit your system by removing the stresses created by temperature changes.

How do I remove water from my compressed air?

The most effective way to remove water from compressed air is to use desiccant dryers. These use a material, known as a desiccant, that absorbs moisture from the air that is passed through. It can help reduce damage from condensation but may be essential if your processes demand dry air.
