Applications in food processing facilities such as sieving and ingredient dispensing, conveying, blending, bulk silo filling, mixing, milling, bag filling and emptying all create dust.
Dust control is vital in any manufacturing industry – this is especially true in the food industry where hygiene and safety are paramount.
Having equipment in place to effectively clean up dust will help to:
- Protect operators from harmful dust (dust that is produced as a result of food production can cause serious skin and respiratory conditions)
- Prevent explosions
- Reduce housekeeping and minimise breakdowns
- Improve product quality by preventing cross contamination
- Protect the environment
Potentially explosive dusts must be handled with appropriately certified ATEX equipment
