Camfil's range of filters offer food manufacturers peace of mind. They meet the strictest regulations in the food industry. Plus, they give you high energy efficiency and a lower total cost of ownership.
Food safety requires a team of dedicated people working to ensure what we eat and drink is safe. This team, following HACCP guidelines and principles, will inevitably identify hazards from the necessary airflow in a processing facility. Many of these hazards can be controlled through an analysis of the HVAC system which includes careful evaluation of the air filters.
In high-care areas, equipment needs to be protected and contamination minimized before products enter a high-hygiene area. High-care areas need high airflow and positive pressure environments. For ready-to-eat production, access corridors.
Medium-care areas, where raw material is stored, need to be kept clean to protect against product contamination. These areas include changing/gowning areas, packaging, warehousing, and plant entrances.
Low-care areas include areas where production and product handling do not occur. Camfil recommends products that adhere to EN 16798 to best protect the health of your building occupants. For office spaces, dispatch areas.
In high-hygiene areas, products requiring the highest hygiene levels undergo final processing and packaging. Here, you need the highest air quality to effectively eliminate all contamination hazards during production, cooking and packaging.
High air quality is crucial for product quality and safety in food and beverage production. The hygiene zones where the AHU operates should determine which AHU products are chosen.
