How important is air filtration in commercial bakeries?

Commercial bakeries

Food-related businesses are quickly adapting to indoor air quality regulations. In order to survive the long term, building owners should consider air filtration systems designed specifically for commercial kitchens.

Commercial bakeries are the commercial kitchens where they process a large amount of flour, dough and the use of beneficial microorganisms. [Ex: yeast]. For this reason, asthma is highly reported among commercial bakery staff. Baker’s asthma can be caused by immunological sensitization to specific work-related allergens and subsequent allergic reactions in the airways and unsanitary equipment, poor food handling practices, and ventilation systems. Another major cause of bakers’ asthma is the inhalation of wheat flour following exposure to flour dust. Commercial bakeries should take all necessary precautions to ensure that their employees do not fall victim to these diseases.

The cleaning process is an integral part of keeping your bakery or food preparation area clean. But that doesn’t minimize the risk of cross-contamination or the spread of airborne contaminants. This is where air filtration comes in, and it will help alleviate respiratory illnesses in commercial bakeries.

Air filtration systems prevent bacteria, viruses, particles, insects and other pests from entering your commercial bakery. Air filtration systems will also help improve air quality in commercial bakeries and make the environment safer for employees, as well as reduce downtime due to employee illness. .

Filtering devices are designed to remove particles such as dust, flour, smoke and a variety of other potentially harmful airborne contaminants.

Air filtration systems are installed to improve commercial bakery air quality, reduce costs and optimize efficiency by removing airborne particles with a high performance combination of a dust collector , pre-filters, bag filters, HEPA filter and carbon adsorber. These can also help reduce operating costs and improve energy efficiency and product quality.

Air handling units must be equipped with filters to remove particles of a defined size. Prefilters with a Minimum Efficiency Ratio Value (MERV) of 4 or greater can successfully remove airborne particles. The higher the MERV value, the smaller the particle size that can be filtered.
