Manufacturer Dustcontrol UK is offering a range of air cleaners and vacuum cleaning systems for the bakery market, to guard against the dangers of airborne particles to bakers’ health.
For example, suction casing can be placed at each area where flour is used, so it doesn’t escape any further into the air. Vacuum cleaning accessories can also be used to clean equipment and fixtures that accumulate dust residue.
Dustcontrol said its systems don’t necessarily mean the inclusion of big fans and filter units, but that small machines can be very effective. Products available include the DC AirCube, an air cleaner that removes airborne dust from small spaces. It works by circulating the air through a filter. The AirCube has been designed to separate fine and hazardous dusts down to 0.3 microns.
The DC AirCube 2000, is a powerful single-phase air cleaner, and has a capacity of 1800m3/h. It features a pre-filter and microfilter of 10m2. There is also an indicator light that lets the operator know when the filter needs changing. The Aircube is made using alu-zinc coated sheet metal and the fan unit features two speed settings.
