Compressed air commonly carries a variety of contaminants, including particles, oil aerosols and oil vapour. Allowing these contaminants to remain present during food packaging could reduce product shelf life.
Thorite’s filter systems now ensure total sterilisation at the point of use, using a desiccant drier and a suitable filtration system. This can remove any oil traces and capture a range of microbiological hazards. The filters are easily cleaned by autoclaving or back-flush steam treatment.
The systems now comply with all current food regulation legislation and codes of practice, while maximising food product performance in terms of freshness and visual appeal.
