Vacuum solutions for food production

The greatest risk for the food industry is food contamination. Preventing potential microbial and cross contamination is essential to avoid paying the heavy economic sanctions faced by those who do not abide by the rules of good manufacturing practice (GMP) or who fail to implement the HACCP protocol when setting up production processes.
 


How can we ensure proper hygiene and reduce the risks of contamination?

To eliminate these risks it is necessary to:
- critically analyse the various environments in which the production cycle takes place, to identify each potential source of contamination;
- define what the critical control points are, in order to verify and eliminate potential problems;
- evaluate the corrective actions necessary to eliminate the risk of contamination;
- establish hygiene verification procedures for each production cycle.

The use of industrial vacuums or centralised extraction systems is one of the most effective solutions available in preventing the various types of contamination to which food can be exposed.

Vacuuming at source to remove any dust or process residue greatly reduces the possibility of it coming into contact with products.

The organic and flammable nature of raw materials used in the food industry can also constitute a serious risk of explosion if not correctly handled, as well as jeopardising the health of the workers.

INDUSTRIAL VACUUM CLEANERS FOR CLEANING PRODUCTION LINES AND MACHINERY

Cleaning the production environment with an industrial vacuum cleaner ensures a high level of hygiene and maintains production lines in an efficient and safe way. Color-coded accessories, certified for food contact, can help you identify different work areas and avoid any risk of food contamination.

By matching the vacuum cleaner, with its tool kit, you can exploit its full potential and remove dust, processing residue, and granules from production lines and machinery, even those located overhead.

SOLUTIONS FOR CEMENT AND BRICK DUST EXTRACTION

SAFE SUCTION IN ATEX ZONES

 

A certified vacuum cleaner is the best solution for explosion risk zones or areas that require the use of ATEX equipment. The ATEX vacuum cleaners range ensures maximum safety during the cleaning of hazardous environments because they are equipped with systems that prevent the ignition:

  • Anti-static polyester filters

  • Earth Grounding

  • AISI304 stainless steel container

Delfin offers the widest range of certified solutions on the market:

  • A Pneumatic range: Our AIREX can work safely in zones 1, 2, 21, 22, thanks to the absence of electromechanical components that could cause the ignition.
  •  An Electric range: for zones 22, 21 with z20 certification internal to the vacuum cleaner. When vacuuming explosive and flammable dust, they create a hazardous environment inside of the vacuum cleaner. Delfin vacuum cleaners with this certification guarantee suction in total safety for operators without any risks of explosions

CONSTANTLY RECOVERY OF PRODUCTION WASTE

 

Wrapping machines and packaging machines require continuous removal of waste, dust, and product in excess. The removal of these materials in a constant way is essential in order to avoid stopping the production process.
The AS vacuum cleaners for packaging lines ensure the continuous suction of scraps or waste by compacting them, with considerable benefits:

  •  Reduction of machine downtime
  •  Maintenance of packaging lines in perfect condition
  •  Fast and easy waste disposal
  •   Highest quality of finished product

INTEGRATED SOLUTIONS ON BOARD OF THE MACHINE FOR YOUR PRODUCTIVITY

 

Process machinery often requires continuous cleaning to maintain high efficiency, but the space for the vacuum cleaner is limited or difficult to reach. The vacuum cleaners for on-board installation are easy to integrate on machinery and production lines even in small spaces thanks to their versatility.
They are available in vertical or horizontal construction. The DBF and DBFV vacuum cleaners are the ideal solution for integration on machines typically used in the food industry, such as:

  • Dosing machines
  • Bottling machines  
  • Filling machines

The quality of the final product remains unchanged while you can reduce machinery downtime and interruptions necessary for the cleaning of the machinery.

TRANSFER YOUR PRODUCTS EFFICIENTLY

Transferring powders and granules through the production lines has to be completely safe and hygienic, avoiding any risk of contamination, dispersion, or breakage of the product and respecting the operators' space.
Delfin produces pneumatic conveyors complete with loading and unloading systems that handle materials in the production lines preventing contamination by external factors, ensuring:

  • Right quantity transported at the right time

  • Up to 30% increase in automation and productivity

  • Safe transfer of materials and quality assurance

  • Saves space in departments, with flexible and compact solutions

​Pneumatic conveyors use the vacuum as their driving force and transport the products from a point A to several destinations at the same time, removing production failures and high management costs.

CENTRALISED SUCTION UNITS: YOUR TAILOR-MADE EFFICIENCY

 

The centralized vacuum system can help you removing materials in several points simultaneously or in a very large production area with several levels.
The centralized system are designed according to the specific characteristics of each single production area, and allow you to remove and transport materials from one area to another through a series of pipes and to accumulate and unload it in a chosen point. They are composed by:

  • A mobile or fixed suction unit with a power of up to 25kW

  • A powerful filtering unit (with the possibility of HEPA filters), to protect the vacuum cleaner system.

  • A collection unit available in different ways (Removable containers, Longopac systems, rolls for continuous discharge, BIG BAG discharge, etc.)

Each vacuum system is created according to the specific dimensions and characteristics of the area where it will be installed.
