According to some reports, food processing is the largest category for combustible dust explosions in manufacturing, accounting for almost 25 percent of incidents. Although sugar, flour, starches, spices, grain and other everyday food materials may seem harmless, when they are finely dispersed into dust form, they carry a huge amount of surface area that makes them highly explosive.
Air Purification Inc. offers a full line of dust collection equipment for effective control of food processing contaminants. Our experts can help you choose products with the right safety features to meet the specific needs of your facility. Cartridge dust collectors are typically most appropriate for dry dusts, and food processing applications may also require special accessories such as bag-in / bag-out filter and collection drum options to ensure best performance.
