Pet Food Producer Case Study

Manufacturing Challenge

American Vacuum was invited to bid on a multi-facility project for a major pet food producer. The project required upgrading certain equipment and replacing obsolete and outdated equipment with the goal of increasing the efficiency of the operations, improving the cleanliness of the facility, and increasing workers’ safety.

Pet food processing requires efficient, sanitary processing of a range of materials, including dust-producing grains, wet and dry food, and food additives. To maintain cleanliness, sanitation, prevent cross-contamination, and ensure worker safety, vacuuming systems are used throughout the processing plant. During transport, mixing and processing, dust accumulates throughout the plant and needs to be cleaned for sanitation and safety. Spills occur during transfer and processing. In addition, grain and dry food dust are highly combustible and the vacuuming system is a critical element in minimizing the risk of fire or explosion. The requirements for the project included:

Custom-Designed Solution
