Dustcontrol’s New Tools Target Food Safety


Hygiene requirements within the food industry are extremely stringent. This is why the Swedish company Dustcontrol is now launching an extraction product line for the food industry: Good For Food (GFF). The system is designed to contribute to safe and hygienic food production.

“We have developed a complete system that makes it easy for food producers to manage material waste and cleanliness in their production processes”, explains Donna Wei Stenberg, project manager for Dustcontrol’s new food industry product line.

Dustcontrol has almost fifty years’ experience in developing advanced extraction systems and dust extractors for all types of manufacturing industries. Dustcontrol has now expanded its product range with the introduction of extraction equipment that contributes to safe and hygienic food production. The initiative for the new system comes from one of the company’s customers, a major food manufacturer in Germany.

There are many regulations and requirements that must be considered when delivering solutions to the food industry. Dustcontrol’s new product line meets both the EU and the FDA requirements relating to safe and hygienic food production. Thanks to the color coding of brushes and accessories, the risk of cross-contamination is minimized.  All of the equipment has been designed for smooth handling and easy cleaning.

The GFF suction brushes have a unique combination of features. They are designed to meet customers’ requirements for color coding, are made from antistatic (ESD) materials, can be cleaned hygienically (autoclavable) and provide the possibility of automatic detection. Apart from the suction brushes, Dustcontrol also offers a complete range of cleaning accessories and hoses that have been specially designed for the food industry.

The Good For Food pre-separator also makes it possible for food producers to reuse materials that have been separated out, for example, grain, flour, spices, and other dry foodstuffs.
