Dust produced during the manufacturing and processing food products create a number of significant challenges. Food dust particles varies in size, and some are so fine that they are not visible to the naked eye. These particles often become airborne, which can threaten worker health and cause combustible dust incidents. Cross-contamination is another serious concern in food processing industry. Common food dust hazards include cereal ingredients, spices, feed and raw grain agricultural products, eggshell dust, flour, corn starch, sugar and flavoring additives.
In the food processing and chemical industry, the finished products or semi-finished products are often crushed, and the crushed material is recycled or treated. As the crusher is operated at a high speed with sharp cutters, large amount of airborne particles can spread in the work environment, and would ultimately effect the health of employees. The airborne dust can also hurt a facility’s aesthetics. Visitors, customers, new recruits and others might get the wrong impression if a facility’s air is noticeably dirty.
Solution: In deal with such kind of dust, it is necessary to follow up the actual crushing amount and dust flying direction for reasonable design and selection of suction hood. Our VJFX series automatic discharge industrial dust collector can be used; if the dust needs to be recycled or the production workshop has requirements, customize the machine to 304 or 316 material.
The feeding process involves the conversion of diverse raw food ingredients into a single, homogenized form of feed, such as, pellet, mash or crumbles, etc. During this process the fine dust coming out travels through the workers breathing zone and into the rest of the facility. Exposure to such dust can be hazardous to worker’s health.
Additionally, during the batch mixing process of food production, when the raw materials are poured together for the mixing process, a large amount of airborne dust particles are generated. If the dust is not handled in time, it will gradually spread in the workshop environment. Furthermore, if the dust is flammable and explosive, it can also threaten the lives of employees.
In order to handle this kind of dust, it is necessary to reasonably design the size and installation mode of the suction hood, and the dust collection system should be carefully calculated and selected. Our VJF and VJFB industrial dust collectors would be the best option according to the specific dust properties. VJFX series industrial dust collectorwould be suitable for the condition requiring auto loading function. If the dust needs to be recycled or special requirement for each machine in the factory, the machine can be customized to 304 or 316 material.
The liquid formulation is sprayed into a mist through high pressure, and at the same time, a dry high-temperature gas is introduced, so that the mist formulation is quickly dried into powder and settled at the bottom of the machine. The inside of the dryer is a closed environment, and the air volume must be discharged in time to ensure the pressure inside the dryer is balanced.
The exhaust gas contains fluttering preparation powder and a small amount of water, which needs to be filtered through a dust collector before being discharged into the air. Our VJF and VJFB industrial dust collectors can be selected according to the specific dust properties. If the dust needs recycling or the production workshop has requirements, the machine can be customized to 304 or 316 material.
Weighing and packaging processes are another major source of dust generation during food processing. During these processes, significant number of airborne dust particles are generated which is not only hazardous to human health but can also accumulate on equipment and electronics, causing them to malfunction or fail. The size of the airborne particles varies mainly according to the amount of the material.
The dust produced during weighing and packaging is a kind of floating dust. For this kind of dust, it is necessary to combine the operating habits of employees, the size of material inlet and the size of dust volume as a reference for design and selection.
The size of dust (during packaging and weighing) mainly depends upon the amount of cutting material. For this type of dust, it is necessary to combine the operating habits of employees, the size of the material port and the amount of dust as a reference for design selection. Generally, our VJF industrial dust collector can be used in conjunction with the suction hood for dust removal. If the production workshop has dust recycling requirements, the machine can be customized to 304 or 316 material.
The dust generated in the food processing process is deposited on the ground and belongs to static dust. A high negative pressure industrial vacuum cleaners can be used to deal with this kind of dust.
Industrial vacuum cleaners can have different configurations such as manual dust removal, manual dust vibration, and pulse back blowing.
Using this feature, Villo has made an exclusive dust removal system to produce an industrial floor vacuum cleaner, which is matched with a high negative pressure industrial vacuum cleaner to deal with this kind of dust.
Villo's VTS, VA, VZ series and other industrial vacuum cleaners can provide an effective solution to remove the dust with tools such as flat nozzles and suction nozzles.
In addition, the industrial vacuum cleaner with 380V voltage or 220V can be selected according to the customer's use site.
During the bottle blow molding process, it is necessary to remove the dust from inside of the bottle mold base, otherwise it will affect the quality of the product. Generally, high pressure gas is used to blow the plastic mold blank to take away the attached powder and set on the other side suction hood for vacuuming.
For this kind of dust, the size and installation method of the suction hood need to be rationally designed, and the dust removal host must undergo rigorous calculation and selection.
VXDL-2.2，the industrial dust collector for bottle blowing machine is the ideal option. It’s specially for the general superfine dust and upright installation way.
VJF and VJ-H series can also be selected according to the specific dust properties. They’re flexible Self-Cleaning Dust Collector and Manual Cleaning Type Industrial Dust Collector.
