Many people think of dust collection systems mainly being used for metal working and wood working applications. They do not consider the operations that take place to make the food we eat such as food processing applications. Ingredients as common as sugar, flour, and spices are made through methods that create dust and that dust is explosive!
In food processing, the fine particles from mixing and blending are released into the air as the ingredients are processed and packaged. In a recent sugar substitute application, we tested the dust and found that it was explosive.
A.C.T. Cartridge Dust Collectors as well as the TLM Baghouse Dust Collectors are designed for food processing application like this. Many of our customers have installed our systems to capture dust from grain, flour and sugar substitute applications. Chemical explosion suppression systems are available to help detect a pressure wave of an explosion and inject sodium bicarbonate that takes the flame out of the explosion.
The team at A.C.T. Dust Collectors can help you determine whether a baghouse or cartridge unit is best for your application. There are many factors that can make one option more efficient for food processing applications than others. Click here to learn about the differences of a baghouse verse cartridge collector.
