Eliminate Airborne Pathogens in Your Production Process

Consumer protection is essential in the food processing industry.  Food contamination can have a negative effect on human health, customer loyalty and damage product brand.  APC helps keep consumers safe by providing custom designed air filters for sterile food and beverage processing systems.

Airborne bacteria are a serious concern for food processors.  For open plant applications, outdoor air can carry between 200 and 1500 bacteria per m³.  That means an enormous amount of bacteria passing through your air handling system every hour.  For example, an air handling unit of 10,000 m3/h could receive up to 15 million bacteria every hour.  Roof top mounted HVAC systems require proper filter design that may include a pre-filter bank for course dust contaminates followed by higher filtration or HEPA filtration. Maintenance of these systems is essential for open plant air processing.

In a closed system, food and/or beverage products are processed or dispensed within a closed work cell. Air temperature, humidity and the level of air filtration is controlled through a series of HEPA filters.

APC has worked with many food and beverage equipment manufacturers over our 34 years in the air filtration business.  We design custom air filters for each manufacturers processing and/or HVAC equipment to be used in food processing facilities around the world.
