Coffee bean dust reduction
05 June 2016
Mondelez International, the American global food & beverage giant that acquired Kraft Foods in 2012, has sourced a Nilfisk vacuum solution for its UK coffee production plant in Banbury, home of Kenco Coffee manufacturing.
The system was needed to reduce/eliminate dust from green coffee beans in an area designated ATEX Zone 22. After a full site survey a 415v CTS40 Z22 Industrial vacuum, complete with 15m of anti-static hose and tools, was specified. The 4 KW vacuum is fixed to the wall from where the hose can clean down the entire production area and haulage containers.
The compact CTS40 is extremely easy to use and is ideal for confined areas where a powerful machine is required. The steel waste bin has a capacity of 50 litres, the wheeled design and quick release mechanism makes for easy disposal of hazardous products.
