The basic nature of particulate generated during food manufacturing and processing presents a unique challenge for the dust filtration industry. In many food products, the dust or particulate that needs to be captured contains moisture, oils or is sticky in nature. This type of dust can create significant complications if traditional pulse jet or baghouse collectors are used in this application. Most often, a wet dust collector is the best alternative when used with these types of dusts. It is important for food and beverage manufactures to carefully consider the dust collection options available. Finding the right solution that combines performance, maintainability and safety can have a major impact on operations.
