Without HEPA filters, we would not be able to manufacture computers, medicine and many other products that are essential in today’s world. But what is the history of these High Efficiency Particulate Air filters and how and where are they used?
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.
When purchasing dust collection systems and filter cartridges, the initial purchase price is just the tip of the iceberg. The true costs – energy, consumables and operations – are lurking below the surface. The good news is that there are ways to reduce these costs over the long term.
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.
HemiPleat is, in short, the uniquely, patented media pleating technology Camfil use to create highly efficient filter cartridges that outlast and outperform competitors alternatives.
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.
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.
CINCAPORC had concerns regarding the Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) outbreak, together with the engineering PRODES in the livestock farm. To study the case and the possible solution, they visited‚ ‘The Grandmother Farms‘ in Minnesota, USA that is using Camfil‘s air filtration solutions.
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.
Not all people who purchase our products are experts in air filtration and they shouldn’t have to be either. The purpose of Camfil City is to give everyone a chance to learn the basics of what our clean air solutions can do for them.

Ornestation Mors is using air filtration solutions focusing on clean air in stable facilities to prevent the risk of infection. One of the requirements is that Artificial Insemination (AI) studs in Denmark must install filtration or UVC rays in the ventilation system that provides clean, fresh air at the AI facilities to prevent infections among the pigs.
Food2Train's goal is to ensure an optimal hygienic profile of its products and a consequent increase in shelf-life. With this motive, since the start of the plant, Food2Train is working on a concept of cleanroom based environment in the food production cycle. This environment is dedicated to the portioning and distribution of its products hygienically along with eliminating the number of airborne microorganisms from the process to ensure maximum protection of the product.

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.
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.
Restaurants have odours coming from a variety of sources and they all have one thing in common, they spread 'air pollution'. Odours are one of the leading causes of air pollution at restaurants or food courts and the odour profile from a kitchen depends on various factors.
Dust is everywhere – in our homes, workplaces and the surrounding environment. One can be annoyed with the dust piled on the surface of the bookshelf but unfortunately there is a darker side; the dust can cause allergies, health problems and expensive issues in production processes and equipment.
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.
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.
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.
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.
