The food processing industry depends heavily on separation, filtration and purification equipment as they help to preserve the quality of food and extend shelf life.

Multi-stage filtration and purification systems ensure the removal of fine particles and microorganisms while separation equipment enables the recovery of desirable products from food and the removal of impurities.

Food purification and filtration systems

The food processing industry requires a hygienic environment for the preparation of food products. Monitoring air quality including temperature, humidity and particle concentration is essential to prevent product contamination and ensure stringent compliance with standards.

The purity and quality of the raw materials being used in the production of food, including water, also need to be ensured.

High-efficiency food purification and filtration solutions can ensure optimal air hygiene and food quality. Some of the purification and filtration systems used in food processing include:

  • Air handling units
  • Efficient air filters (EPA), high-efficiency air filters (HEPA) and ultra-low penetration (ULPA) air filters
  • Vacuum press filters
  • Drum filters
  • Belt press filters
  • Cartridge filters
  • Membrane filters

Separation equipment in food processing

Separation equipment in food processing is used to remove sediments, unwanted materials and impurities, recover valuable solids from liquids such as cheese, concentrate the ingredients, and recover aromas.

The food processing industry uses multiple separation methods such as centrifugation, sieving, and clarification, which are employed in the separation equipment. The separation equipment in food processing include:

  • Vibratory separators
  • Centrifugal separators
  • Sorting equipment and machine vision sorting systems
  • Disc separators
  • Screens and sieves
  • Cyclones
  • Agitators
