Air filtration solutions for smoke-houses industry - Food and Beverage - Food
The expert for air filtration in smokehouses. Specific requirements for air purification in smokehouses. The exhaust of strong odour and fumes from food production lines requires the cleaning of waste air emissions. In comparison to non-food productions, the food processing industry is often faced with particular problems that arise from either the type of emission/emissions or are due to the manufacturer’s location.
Locality of the factory:
Food processing factories are often located in residential or central city areas. Smoke and odour can therefore cause problems for the neighbourhood.
A company’s size:
Investing in environmental protection can represent a heavy burden for medium to smaller food processing companies.
Pollution control problems in the food processing industry:
Typical smoke and odour emissions of food processing plants derive from the treating of organic substances. They consist of smoke or aerosols consisting of odour, tar, oil or grease. Filtering equipment therefore must be able to extract both particulate matter (grease, tar) as well as odours from the exhaust air and clean these flue gases. Unfortunately, most conventional filter media can quickly turn unsuitable for food processing applications due to tar and grease sticking to their surfaces in a short period of time, preventing exhaust air from passing through.
