Dust Collectors for Food Processing

Farr Gold Series® on Food Processing Applications

The Farr Gold Series ensures a clean food processing facility, which is vital for worker and visitor safety.

Common Food Dust Collection Challenges

  • Cereal ingredients
  • Spices
  • Feed and raw grain agricultural products
  • Egg shell and dust

Special considerations:

  • Allergens
  • Flours
  • Corn starches

Companies in the food processing industry take raw agricultural products (such as grains) and turn them into the food products that we eat everyday (like bread and cereal). Dust collection applications can include dried food ingredients from coarse grains to fine spices and additives. For sugars and other sticky dusts, we fit the Farr Gold Series(GS) with spunbond Dura-Pleat®  cartridges, which have high release efficiency. The GS is perfect for high efficiency filtration where recovery of the product is not required.

Safety Considerations

A clean food processing facility is vital for worker and visitor safety. Slips and falls are a constant concern for anyone running a food processing business. Keeping fugitive dust contained minimizes slippery floors. Some food ingredients are allergens, another serious concern for those who are affected. Airborne allergen particles could cause serious illness and even death if ingested continuously or at high levels.

Flours, corn starch and other starches can be explosive. In these applications, each Farr Gold Series is expertly fitted with explosion vents to meet NFPA requirements. Camfil APC has numerous Farr Gold Series on these applications.

The dangers of combustible dust explosions in the food industry have been known for many years, however the only applicable OSHA legislation has been geared toward grain dust. Here's an industry article on this subject:
