Considerations for Food & Beverage Processing Compressed Air & Vacuum Solutions

In the food & beverage processing and packaging industries, cleanliness is essential. Clean compressed air systems and vacuum systems are key to any food & beverage processing and packaging application.

Compressed air is used throughout food & beverage processing and packaging processes. The risk of oil contamination is unacceptable, particularly where air comes in direct contact with product or packaging. Oil free air prevents contamination of food & beverage products due to air compressor lubricant carryover. Additional filtration and drying systems can help ensure air is free from both moisture and particulate.

Beyond the demands of a clean environment, the food & beverage processing and packaging industries have a need for compressed air systems that maximize production space, reduce maintenance, and increase reliability. When space savings is crucial, a scroll compressor with best in class footprint may revolutionize the process.

Throughout food & beverage processing, efficient vacuum systems are used for essential cooling processes to prevent potential microbial contamination and cross contamination. Vacuum systems are key to processes that ensure that food safety guidelines are met, from the HACCP program to the good manufacturing practices (GMP) that govern the industry. Vacuum cooling helps shorten processing time, extend shelf life, and improve product quality and safety. Vacuum systems also enable specialized evaporative cooling techniques for moist and porous products like leafy vegetables and mushrooms.
