Food

The manufacturing, processing, and packaging of food and beverage products and their ingredients often generate dust. This will create a number of significant challenges for the industry. When dust particles become airborne, they can threaten employee health, contaminate products, or cause combustible dust incidents.

Combustible dust is a risk factor creating safety issues in numerous food sectors such as: confectionery, bakery, biscuits and biscuits, snacks, cereals, blends/blends, spices, and these products contain ingredients whose potential risks must be considered: flour, spices, Starch, sugar. Under the right conditions, sugar can be as flammable as wood. Due to their surface area to volume ratio, these dust particles are more flammable.

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), a room with at least 5% of its surface area covered by more than 1/32 inch of organic dust presents an explosion hazard. That thin layer of dust in a closed room is enough to cause an explosion if the dust turns to air and ignites.

We can provide you with efficient and economical solutions. Our dust collectors can handle sticky dust, abrasive dust and flammable and explosive dust generated in food processing.
