Dust Control for Food and Beverage facilities

Food and Beverage dust control

Dust extraction systems are used in the Food and Beverage Industry to reduce the affects of dust in your facility. They are designed to help protect your people, products and processes from internal contaminants that are generated in the production.

We serve nearly all sectors of Food and Beverage manufacturing such as, Dairy processing, Food processing, Beverage production, Fruit and Vegetable production. We offer a wide range of products designed for the highest quality, safety & traceability requirements within the food and beverage industry. Dust collectors reduce the risk of combustible dust that can collect on floors and other surfaces, and they confine the dust in one area. However, dust collectors can be a fire or explosion hazard if they are designed incorrectly or not equipped with controls that prevent deflagration and contain explosions. These controls include fire resistant cartridges, sprinkler connections, explosion vents, suppression systems, and backdraft dampers.
