Industrial fans are used across a whole host of machinery in food processing. Stainless steel varieties are favoured due to their hygienic and easy to clean material composition. Where required, special coatings for perfect cleaning may also be requested. Each application will have its own set of specifications in the design of the full manufacturing system. Due to our years of experience working within this market sector, our range of industrial fans are suitable for a large number of processes within food and process manufacturing.
Among many other materials, flour and starch are a combustible material. Industrial fans within our ATEX compliant lines can handle material and reduce the risk of explosive atmospheres. Within many manufacturing units, a pneumatic conveyor, utilising a stream of clean air, is used to transport raw materials such as grains, sugar, flour and granular materials. Storage areas, in addition, require humidity and temperature control and at the end of the production line a high-pressure fan acting as a vacuum for the packaging may also be required.
Used to reduce the water volume within some food, in addition to facilitating the drying of washed fruits and vegetables, industrial fans such as the ER or EQ range of cased axial fans make a significant contribution. The use of industrial fans in the dehydration of certain fruits, vegetables and meats is also widely used to prevent the growth of bacteria.
