Balston Sterile Air Filters safeguard your operations from rust, pipescale, water, oil, and organisms usually found in compressed air.
Balston Sterile Air Filters remove contaminants at a very high effiency - up to 99.99% for 0.01 micron particles and droplets. Liquid releases from the filter cartridge to an automatic drain as rapidly as it enters the filters. This allows the filter to continue removing liquids for an unlimited time without loss of efficiency or flow capacity. The final stage of filtration removes all viable organisms with an efficiency rating of 99.9999+% at 0.01 micron. Select 1/4" to 1" line size filters are constructed of 304 stainless steel and are designed to hold up to the harshest environments.
Features & Benefits
Compressed air is used in a broad range of applications in the food processing industry such as mixing of ingredients, cutting, sparging, drying of product, transporting/propelling product through processing systems and packaging of final product. In many of these applications, compressed air is in direct contact or indirect contact with food product and the impurities in the compressed air may contaminate the food product which can result in change of color and taste, reduced shelf life, in addition to exposure to bacteria and other microorganisms can result in product recalls.
A GMP Template for Food Plants Using Risk-based Systems:
The objective of this technical paper is to benchmark published Good Manufacturing Practices as they relate to compressed air use in a food processing facility in both a HACCP and/or Global Food Safety Initiative (SQF or BRC) environment.
Any modern food manufacturing facility employs the use of compressed air extensively in the plant. As common as this is, the potential h ...
