Food processing, packaging and transporting processes generate a large amount of dust and airborne particles which can lead to both health and explosion risk. The most common dust types include grain and flour dust, corn and other powdered starches, dust from milling or grinding nuts, legumes, spices, flavoring and additives.
Most dust created by the food industry isn’t toxic but long exposure can cause serious skin condition and asthma, if it’s not collected and filtered correctly. If cross-contamination occurs it can affect the quality and safety of the product, which has a negative impact on productivity and profitability.
Another reason why dust control is crucial in the food processing industry is to reduce the spread of microbial pathogens. Uncontrolled dust can in fact become breeding ground for dangerous yeast, molds and bacteria, which can easily end up in the final product.
Finally, dust generated from the processing of organic ingredients, such as flour, grain, sugar, dairy, and many others, is combustible and may cause fire or explosion if not properly contained.
Coral STATIONARY UNITS WITH CARTRIDGE FILTERS are an ideal filtration solution for heavy duty applications, typically a non-portable unit has a fixed location and is used in applications that demand a higher workload, greater quantity of airflow and pollutants. The modularity of our Coral STATIONARY UNITS allows us to meet the requirements of many different industries. In addition, you can customize them adding several accessories according to the type of pollutants. Finally, the large filter surface area ensures maximum efficiency, with fewer cleaning cycles and the saving of compressed air.
Coral STATIONARY UNITS WITH SLEEVE FILTERS are designed to extract, filter and collect a higher load of dust as compared to the STATIONARY UNITS WITH CARTRIDGE FILTERS. The smooth surface of the sleeves is the ideal solution to filter more abrasive and aggressive dust, chips and particles that would risk clogging of cartridges. Filter sleeves are easier to clean with compressed air, require less maintenance and typically last longer. Coral STATIONARY UNITS WITH SLEEVE FILTERS are modular and customizable according to industry, air-flow and pollutants.
Coral S.P.A. is a global leader in the Pollution Control Industry and we specialize in supplying products, systems and services for air extraction and filtration.
