Clean Air Fact

Food & Beverage

With outdoor air carrying 200 to 1,500 bacteria per cubic metre, an air-conditioning system with a capacity of 10,000 m3/h can potentially take in 2 to 15 million bacteria each hour and seriously contaminate food & beverage production. Efficient air filtration is the solution.

Protecting human health is a major concern for governments throughout the world and food production is one area that is strictly regulated to avoid all possible risks associated with potential contamination at production facilities.

Whenever public health is threatened by a serious danger, national agencies for food health and safety can recommend authorities to enforce the requisite health policy measures. Such measures may include the withdrawal and destruction of foodstuffs or even the temporary closure of all or part of the negligent company’s production plant.

To ensure the safety of foodstuffs, those in charge of establishments are required to:

  • identify aspects of their business impacting food safety
  • ensure that appropriate safety procedures are put in place, implemented, adhered to and updated, based on ADPCM/HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) principles. This management system addresses food safety through the analysis and control of biological, chemical, and physical hazards from raw material production, procurement and handling, to manufacturing, distribution and consumption of the finished product.

To prevent the air conditioning system from becoming a microbe nest, temperature and humidity must be controlled and accumulated organic matter removed, as clogged exchangers provide good support for the development of microorganisms.

Camfil provides a full range of air filtration systems for the global food & beverage industry to combat microbiological contamination.

Protecting human health is a major concern for governments throughout the world. In many countries agencies associated with food safety have the authority to take direct action against manufacturers who fail to ensure the safety of foodstuffs that they produce. To prevent the air conditioning system from becoming contaminated, temperature, humidity and cleanliness must be closely controlled. Talk with the experts in clean air solutions - Camfil.
