Instant coffee solution
11 June 2015
Mondelez International, the American global food & beverage giant who acquired Kraft Foods in 2012, has sourced a Nilfisk vacuum solution for its UK coffee production plant in Banbury to cope with green coffee bean dust, which is a potential allergen.
Prior to the project, operators were using brushes or compressed airlines to collect the dust, but a vacuum solution was needed to improve dust containment. During a DSEAR assessment blowing the fine dust was identified as a problem and the area is also now classified as ATEX Zone 22.
A 415v CTS40 Z22 Industrial vacuum complete with 15 metres 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 the haulage containers.
