At Dustcontrol UK, we've launched a new process extraction and general cleaning range for the food industry.
With hygiene requirements within the food industry being extremely stringent, we've launched a product line of centralised vacuum systems to contribute to safe and hygienic food production.
Our Good For Food (GFF) range is designed to offer a source extraction system that can be fully integrated into the production process for recycling, or used as a centralised vacuum cleaning system. Ultimately, it provides a flexible system where all parts are approved for food contact.
Our Managing Director, James Miller, said: "The food industry has special requirements. Control of components and equipment used in production is extreme, with a special focus on migratory risk, surface finish and antistatic properties.
"So far, we've aimed mainly towards cleaning and extraction systems in the 'dirty' side of food production, where there are generally lower hygiene standard requirements. Now, with our unique suction brushes and a complete source extraction system with all materials approved for food contact, we have a new and exciting solution with a market leading combination of features."
Each of our systems have been unique, and several have been designed to be installed in zone 22, according to ATEX Directives 2014/34/EU.
Our GFF brushes, in particular, are antistatic and ESD certified, with a material composition that makes them detectable via metal detector as well as being autoclavable up to 121 degrees Celsius, allowing for high-pressure saturated steam cleaning.
The brushes' colour coding, covering five handle colours and two interchangeable brush colours, also allows for different applications in the factory, or different days of the week depending on need.
When fully integrated with all GFF components, the system includes flap valves, suction brushes, flat nozzles, hose connectors, tubing system, joints, pre-separator, automatic shutter valves and filter units.
James concluded: "Our new GFF range will give us the possibility to discuss and solve the need of systems fully integrated into the production process of recycling and much more. All material is approved for food contact and we offer a complete service package, including accessories and spare parts to be used when clean is not enough."
