Our eLearning course for the food industry

Food safety is one of the most important tasks in the food industry today.

Manufacturing companies in the food industry are under constantly increasing pressure to meet the required quality standards. At the same time, consumer demands are increasing and the topics of food hygiene and food safety are becoming the focus of public interest.

This eLearning describes and explains the importance of compressed air preparation for the food production sector. The focus is on understanding the process chain with the individual procedures and the associated risks for the end product - the food.

A first introduction: What does compressed air actually mean for a tasty ice cream?

In this video you will learn about the significant influence compressed air has on the production, processing and safety of food. We take a closer look at the use of compressed air in ice cream production and explain what producers should consider in order to avoid contamination of compressed air and the end product. We present relevant guidelines and standards and show what damage can be caused to consumers and companies by contaminated compressed air.

Application Reports

Compressed air in direct food contact at MEGGLE

Powdered lactose is pumped through pipes at Meggle AG using compressed air. The utilized conveying air has to be absolutely dry and oil-free in order to prevent clumping. This is guaranteed by EVERDRY adsorption dryers and activated carbon adsorbers from BEKO TECHNOLOGIES.


Oil-free compressed air at LAVAZZA

Two installed BEKOKAT from BEKO TECHNOLOGIES in Neuss guarantee LAVAZZA a constantly oil- and germ-free compressed air of the highest quality, which even exceeds the extremely strict requirements of ISO 8573-1, Class 1 oil content.

Compressed air for powdery raw materials

Approximately 150 tonnes of powdered raw materials for milk replacers must be transported daily from the tanker trucks in silos to Nukamel. As a transport medium low compressed air is utilized as conveying air. If it contains too much moisture, the clumping threatens.

Clean air in food processing

In order to meet the extremely high demands placed on compressed air in the food industry, Nölke in Versmold uses our METPOINT OCV to monitor its compressed air quality. At Nölke compressed air is used in the sausage production as control and conveying air.

Compressed air treatment in the beverage industry

Due to the extremely strict regulations in the food industry, RheinfelsQuelle H. Hövelmann GmbH & Co. KG uses BEKOKAT to produce absolutely oil-free compressed air, especially because the air as process air partly comes into direct food contact.
