Working in the food and beverage industry, you are aware that without effective filtration, food, beverages and processes can become contaminated due to poor air quality. We’d like to share our knowledge to educate and inspire you to optimise your food and beverage company to meet the strict regulatory industry requirements.
Companies in the food and beverage industry have a responsibility to ensure the safety of all people, products and processes. Food and beverage contamination grabs people’s attention because eating and drinking are vital and necessary parts of everyone’s day.
Did you know Camfil have a full range of retrofit filters that can be utilised in all the most common brands on the market. Camfil filters are not just designed to work but to optimise your dust extraction systems performanceEnergy and Power Systems Manufacturing and Machinery Food and beverage Life science and healthcare
Dust collection systems are an important part of any manufacturing process, so they need to be sized and designed properly. One critical design component is specifying the proper filtration media, which requires analysis of the dust in the process and all operating conditions.Manufacturing and Machinery Food and beverage Life science and healthcare
Handling dust produced due to sugar can be challenging as it is explosive, sticky and abrasive. In this facility, the customer produces soft gummy sweet sugar coated candy and required an efficient and reliable dust extraction solution for a new packaging line.
Manufacturing, processing and packing of food and beverage products and their ingredients usually generates dust. This, in turn, can create a number of significant challenges for the industry. When dust particles become airborne they can threaten employee health, contaminate products and/or cause combustible dust incidents. Using a high-efficiency dust collection system helps to reduce those risks and keep your facility in compliance with local HSE regulations.
Dust collectors are necessary safety systems in many manufacturing and processing plants, thus as in the food processing industry. But if they are not designed, installed and maintained properly, these systems themselves can cause serious problems. In this eBook we highlight 10 ways how to make sure your dust collection system is up to the tasks of keeping workers safe, maximising production uptime and meeting regulatory compliance.
A properly designed and installed dust collection system will effectively catch, convey and separate hazardous and nuisance dusts. Our new ePoster pinpoints key areas to watch and signs to look for that will help you avoid problems with your dust collection system and to keep up process availability in your production facility.
Almost all industrial manufacturing, processing or packaging applications generate dust as a side effect. Many of these dusts are both combustible as well as explosive, and removing them from the work place can significantly reduce the risk of serious accidents. It is estimated that there are approximately 2,000 dust explosions in Europe annually. Most of these are minor but some are very destructive. So by extracting the dust, the risk in the production is reduced, but unless the extraction system is safe the risk is just moved.
Dust collection systems are all safety devices and thus state-of-the art modern methods of validation and certification are required. Furthermore it is vital to ensure that the system is still in compliance after perhaps changed process conditions, to provide maximum safety for personnel and the facility. It is also recommended to carry out quality audits, process reliability surveys and annual safety inspections.
Dealing with airborne odours, toxins and gases can be a big challenge. Learn about how Molecular Contamination Control and how it can protect against the harmful effects of these airborne contaminants.
In the meat processing industry, there is a big focus on ventilation technology for the prevention of the virus outbreak. Due to a lack of standards in the industry around ventilation, there is very little guidance around what should be considered as the clean air requirements for the facility.
A Canadian-based provider of wholesale French and Asian-style cakes and pastries that ship to restaurants and grocery stores throughout North America turned to Camfil when it needed a dust collector. The requirements for the dust collector included the ability to collect flour, sugar, baking and dry mix dust from ingredients being dropped into mixers, augers and bin dumpers.
Air quality in meat processing facilities is often the forgotten ingredient within their facility. Did you know that Meat processing factories are susceptible to the spread of airborne viruses and microbes? The temperature and humidity requirements along with the production processes lend to the survival of airborne microbes and viruses. This means that the airborne viruses can survive longer in the air than in other facilities.
Every business depends on its surrounding environment and understanding the needs truly depends on identifying the problems. One fact that will remain unchanged even after the COVID-19 pandemic storm settles is that 'air travels'. It is important to highlight the potential risks surrounding the business such as air pollution.

Some processes are more sensitive than others. If you work in the food and beverage or life science industries, you know how tough the demands on clean air are. To be sure you have the right filter, look for the ProSafe symbol.
Cross-contamination is a serious concern in the food processing industry. Facilities that produce both non-allergy-friendly or gluten-containing foods and “free-from” foods face even more challenges.
Most people understand air pollution and poor air quality are issues that are important, but it often remains an abstract concept until it affects them directly. But food and beverage contamination grabs people's attention.
