Malt production facilities are the producers of ingredients for our baking, beverage, and specialty food industries. To date, information about the unique design requirements of these facilities has been limited. In an effort to summarize state of the art design procedures for malting facilities constructed in North America, an overview of accepted standards and procedures has been assembled. With this paper engineers should become more familiar with specific design considerations for malting plants and develop appropriate references to expand their knowledge base. Educators may find this paper useful too.
