Food & Beverage

At DCS we are experienced in the design and installation of dust extraction systems for the food processing and beverage industry. Typically, these installations deal with dust that is created during the process of mixing, drying, weighing, wrapping and transportation of food ingredients, and mostly require a catch-at-source solution which moves the dust, via ductwork, to a central filter unit.

Combustible dust explosions can be a risk in areas of a food processing plant and dust extraction systems are required to fully comply with the latest EU ATEX directives in relation to explosion protection of equipment, installations – and protection of personnel.

Important Food & Beverage projects undertaken by DCS include the installation of a state-of-the-art dust extraction plant to deal with airborne tea dust particles generated in the main line tea packing area for Taylors of Harrogate. Taylors of Harrogate is one of the few remaining family tea and coffee merchants and has been blending quality teas since 1886. Today, the company is best known for its Yorkshire Tea blends.

The system supplied and installed by DCS Ltd draws dust directly from teabag filling stations and transports it via special ‘smooth bore’ galvanised ducting for filtration by a dust collector housed in the roof space above the tea hall. Two ATEX approved ‘Downflo’ filter units handle air volumes of 20,400 cubic metres per hour and are capable of capturing dust of less than one micron in size.
