Safer and More Hygienic Food Production With A New Source Extraction System From Dustcontrol
Swedish Dustcontrol AB is boosting its product portfolio with a comprehensive source extraction system specially developed for the food industry. Hygiene requirements for the food industry are extremely stringent and the source extraction system ‘Good For Food’ contributes to increased safety, hygiene and cost-efficiency in production.
Good for Food meets both EU and FDA requirements for safe and hygienic food production. The suction brushes are made from antistatic material, can be cleaned hygienically (autoclavable) and provide the possibility of automatic detection. Colour coding of brushes and accessories minimises the risk of cross-contamination, and all equipment has been designed for smooth handling. The brushes are complemented by a full range of cleaning accessories and hoses especially produced for the food industry.
The system’s pre-separator also makes it possible for food producers to recycle materials that have been separated out, for example grain, flour, spices and other dry foodstuffs, which has a positive effect on the entire economics of production.
Max af Klintberg is the technician responsible for Dustcontrol’s new food system:
– Dustcontrol has almost fifty years of experience in advanced extraction systems and dust extractors for all types of manufacturing industries. Our goal with this system has been to develop a complete and simplified system for the food industry. The new system will help food manufacturers to raise both quality and efficiency of their production processes, leading to increased profitability. Good for Food will be available from week 7.

- (EC) No 1935/2004: Materials and articles intended to come into contact with food.
- (EC) No 2023/2006: Good manufacturing practice for materials and articles intended to come into contact with food.
