Because a dusty food processing facility is hazardous to both workers and consumers, Camfil APC has introduced the Gold Series X-Flo (GSX) industrial dust collection system. It handles toxic, nuisance and combustible food dusts including fine, fibrous and heavy dust loads. The GSX system collects airborne dust particles to provide a clean work environment and prevent cross-contamination of food products.
The GSX system is ideal for dry food ingredients like coarse grains, fine spices, and additives, as well as sticky dusts like sugar and whey. It can capture food dust at its source using stainless steel pickup hoods at each production station or by directly hooking to batch mixers or high-velocity slot hoods behind weigh stations. Capturing dusts at their source prevents worker exposure to airborne contaminants and keeps dust from travelling throughout the facility.
The GSX system helps food processing and manufacturing facilities exceed OSHA indoor air quality standards. When equipped with a Camfil explosion vent, the GSX system offers the highest combustible dust explosion protection in accordance with NFPA and ATEX standards. Other explosion protection options are available including isolation valves, integrated safety monitoring filters and fire-retardant filter cartridges.
The GSX is built modularly, and each module handles airflows up to 6,000 cubic feet per minute using four HemiPleat Gold Cone™ filter cartridges. The filters stay cleaner and last longer than conventional pleated filters, because they eject the maximum amount of dust into the hopper with each pulse of compressed air.
