Parker Balston Compressed Air Filters Contaminate-Free Sterile Air To Food Processing Applications
September 27, 2011
Parker Hannifin, the global leader in motion and control technologies is now offering a new line of stainless steel filters designed for those areas in food facilities that are frequently exposed to aggressive wash down chemicals.
Compressed air is contaminated with compressor oil, water condensate, pipe scale and rust, all of which provide the ideal environment and means to grow bacteria. This natural occurring contaminate can also effect the taste, appearance and shelf life of food product. The food processing and packaging industry utilizes compressed air extensively throughout their facilites. Compressed air is used to push and propel product, cut and mix product in addition to packaging product.
These filters remove 99.9999+% 0.01 microns of oil, water, rust, bacteria, and other viable organisms from compressed air and other gases. This efficiency is at least 30 times better than the accepted standard for sterile air filters developed by the independent research organizations in the the USA and UK. The filters are available in ¼” to 1” line sizes with flow capacities to over 700 SCFM. Constructed of 304 stainless steel, these filters are in full compliance with the requirements of the FDA and will stand up to the harshest environments in the food and beverage industries. The product line comes complete with auto drains and a high efficiency filter cartridge installed.
