High-quality food industry dust extraction

In the food industry, dust is unacceptable both from hygienic and safety standpoints. From the hygienic standpoint, dust is a source of impurities and it creates environments for bacteria, which is both unacceptable in the food industry.
Paper dust deposits near production lines are combustive and can create explosive environments, which must be avoided at all costs.

The most commonly extracted technologies in food industry are: raw materials transportation, conveyors transfer points, grinders, mixers and final product packaging. The filtration and extraction device extracts dust directly at its source and prevents it from spreading to and settling in the workplace.

Central dust extraction systems applications

In food industry, dust extraction devices are attached directly at the source of dust and connected to a central extraction duct, which leads the dust to the central extraction and filtration device, where the dust is filtered from the air. Air extraction devices and ducts are designed in stainless steel to enable easy disassembly for cleaning purposes.
The filtration device is equipped with automatic filter regeneration with compressed air counterflow, which to ensure continuous exhaust power distribution.
The filtered air is blown outside during summer and returned to the workplace during winter to save heating costs.

Explosive dust extraction

Almost every type of food dust is explosive, and we need to design our solutions accordingly. Solutions for these applications must meet these requirements: minimum exhaust speed 20 m/s, electric conductivity of every extraction component due to static electricity produced by dust particles inside air ducts. Filtration technology must have protective measures against potential shockwaves. Filter must be equipped with a relief membrane facing to safe space with restricted workers movement. Air ducts must be secured with a safety flap to prevent shockwaves from spreading further into the piping system. The filtration device must be pressure resistant and equipped with antistatic filter medium. Annual inspections of filter medium safety measures are necessary to ensure safety of the whole system.

Filter medium replacement cost

We design and deliver our solutions for our clients with minimum filtration device maintenance cost in mind. Our devices are equipped with smooth filtration sleeves made of microporous filtration fabric. Filtration sleeves won’t have dust deposits, don’t tear and have high mechanical resistance. For welding shops applications, we guarantee filter medium service life of at least 20 000 hours.

Why work with us

We design and install all solutions ourselves and with our own products. We are 100 % liable for our finished solutions. We strive for high-quality, energy-saving air extraction solutions. We focus on low operating costs and long operating life of filter medium.
