Dust Collectors for Food Processing

Hastings Air supplies industrial dust collectors suitable for the food processing and packaging industries. Food processing helps transform agricultural products into food, from making flour to grinding raw grains.

Industrial dust collection systems are necessary for the food and beverage industries to meet a variety of food safety standards and regulations.

The food processing procedure generates a variety of different types of dust and particles, from finer spices and powders to thicker and coarser baking ingredients. The ideal method to capture food processing dust is collection at the source while particles are still in the air.

Food packaging and processing dust can be generated from procedures including:

  • Stirring/Mixing
  • Pouring/Dumping
  • Batching
  • Weighing
  • Transferring 
Common Applications Include: 
  • Drying
  • Preservation
  • Smoking
  • Freezing
  • Salting
  • Vacuum Packs
  • Sugaring 
Common Risks of Food Processing Dust 

Dust and particles generated through food processing and packaging processes can lead to both health and explosion risks. Dust inhalation can seriously affect different regions of the respiratory tract and workers can be directly affected from a series of illnesses in food processing environments.

Additionally, dust explosions can occur during food processing when dust combusts too rapidly in enclosed spaces, resulting in an enormous wave of pressure and potentially fatal injuries for workers.
