Food & Agriculture Dust Extraction
UK agriculture provides £108 billion and over 3.5 million jobs to the economy. This can include all sizes of companies from massive internationals food and drink companies with sites, factories and processes all over the world to small, artisan or niche food and drinks companies. Farm safety is vitally important in the agriculture industry, but isn’t the only phase of the process where dust and fume extraction technology is necessary to protect employees.
When it comes to feeding people around the world, the agriculture industry must maintain high standards throughout the production and processing of food and drink products. At Vodex this means providing our food and agriculture clients with fume and dust extraction equipment designed to meet the problems they experience every day.
This means we have to be aware of, not only the food standards for equipment in these areas, but also the dangers dry dusts like flour, sugar, coffee and more can pose. Many of these dry dusts are classified as combustible dusts. At Vodex, we always consider the additional threats these dusts can bring. Many of our dry dust extractors are fitted with specialist farm safety features such as fire suppression, explosion relief panels, special fans and more, all built to effectively remove the risk from breathing in these dusts and controlling their combustible dangers.
