Within the Food and Beverage manufacturing facility, filtration is vital in preventing cross contamination, ensuring consistent and superior quality products and protecting people and process equipment. 

Cross contamination can lead to production down time and lost product, both of which impact the yield and profitability of the food and beverage producer. Having a well-sealed environment is the first step to preventing cross contamination, and having superior filtration is key to maintaining the integrity of the process.

Protect Your Product, Customers, and Reputation

When any food or beverage producer wants to make a consistent and high quality product, filtration factors in heavily to prevent mold, spores, bacteria, viruses and other byproducts from entering the manufacturing space. Environmental, Health and Safety factor into the equation inside and outside of a manufacturing space. Both production workers and the outside environment need protection from the types of contamination that could be released into the air.

The Air Inside a Food and Beverage Facility Can Contain:

  • Molds, spores, bacteria or viruses 
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • Malodorous compounds (e.g. vinegar)
  • Fine dusts from sugar, flour and/or other dry ingredients

Extensive Studies Show:

  • Government regulation continues to rapidly change and increase
  • There are 175,268 pages on IAQ in the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations
  • 56% of commercial maintenance teams actually admit that their IAQ maintenance is not carried out per IAQ guidelines
  • Indoor pollution levels can be up to 5 times higher than outdoor levels (in many cases up to 100 times higher)
  • Lack of proper air filtration is the #1 cause of poor IAQ
