Dust Collection Systems

Ingredient Solutions designs and manufactures Dust Collection Systems ranging from single point collection systems, to plant wide systems. The design process of each Dust Collection System starts with a detailed engineering review of the dust collection needs of each customer. A complete Dust Collection System includes collection hoods, duct work, collector, controls, exhauster, and explosion protection equipment where required.

Various filter designs and choices of filter media are available to assist with materials having difficult handling characteristics. Additional equipment can be included to allow reclaiming of collected dust, thereby reducing ingredient cost and associated disposal issues while helping to improve the cleanliness of your plant.

Flour Reclaim Systems

Ingredient Solutions Flour Reclaim Systems allow the collection and reuse of flour used in a customer’s process, providing numerous benefits including reduced ingredient cost, improved dough quality, and reduced downtime associated with required maintenance of freezer coils and oven burners caused by migrant flour dust.  

With the use of the Ingredient Solutions Flour Reclaim System, flour is collected using dust collection hoods, air knives and catch pans, then returned to the production line using an automated pneumatic conveying system. Flour can also be collected and filled into portable totes.  All reclaimed flour is sifted and passed through a magnet prior to reuse to ensure the highest level of quality assurance.

Although reduction of flour usage and associated ingredient cost are the primary benefits of a Flour Reclaim System, increased sanitation and housekeeping provide a much cleaner and safer work environment, and reduce the associated labor required to clean plant floors and equipment.
