Schliengen, Germany –At a factory of a food manufacturer, a suitable filter system was installed to clean the dust-laden exhaust air generated during the processing of dairy powder. In order to ensure that the dedusting system continues to function reliably even after prolonged operation, a ProSens dust measurement system from SWR engineering Messtechnik was installed, which continuously monitors the dust concentration in the clean gas side after filter elements.
Filtering starch through a fine screen
In this application starch is produced in a food manufacturer’s plant before being blown into a silo with a holding capacity of 25 tonnes. The material is then filtered through a fine screen before being transferred to a drying silo in a further processing step. The fine screens used (1) are swing-mounted on fibreglass frames (2) and are set in rotation by imbalance.
