Food Industry Air Filters & Air Filter Information
The air distribution system in a food manufacturing environment is critical to the management of airborne contamination, particularly in High Care and High Risk areas.
Incorrect air flow and insufficient air filtration means that the air within a facility could potentially act as a source of contamination. If the incorrect air filters are specified for High Care and High Risk areas then the air handling system can move contamination into these areas from other sources within the processing environment.
Effective and correct air filtration, a good level of air hygiene are essential to reduce or prevent the possibility of airborne contamination in High Care and High Risk Areas.
The table below demonstrates the food industry air filter and air filtration requirements for food manufacturing and processing.
