Safety and hygiene are mandatory for the food and beverage industry to protect consumer health and to provide flavoured and quality products.
Possible food and beverage contamination can be caused by compressed air during several steps, such as food transportation, dust and fluids moving, aerosol generation, refolding, washing, drying, and packaging.
The mandatory compressed air quality standards for food and beverage industries are regulated by ISO 8573-1:2010. This legislation provides the purity class based on the total dust, water and oil quantity. They distinguish between direct contact with animals, whose quality class 1.2.1, and indirect contact, for which class 1.4.1 is sufficient.
Ceccato offers a complete range of oil-free compressors, eliminating any risk of oil contamination. Besides, a wide range of filters and dryers are available to improve the air treatment within a food and beverage manufacturing company. Filters and dryers delete impurities, such as dust and moisture, which can decrease food quality and flavour, as well as cause other food preservation issues.
