Powder ingredients

Challenges

Powder ingredients are a dry substance consisting of very fine particles. The powder form is generally used for transportation or storage before adding liquid to create the finished product within the food and beverage production and other production industries. It is also used in medical production of hazardous drugs. When powder particles are sufficiently small, they easily become airborne and may stay suspended in the air for a very long time. This typically happens when the powder is produced, packaged, or unpackaged to be blended. Powder ingredients can be inhaled, will stick to other surfaces, and are often combustible.

Application areas

Powder ingredients are typically used in the food and beverage industry as well as in other production industries where they have a direct impact on the indoor air quality. Facilities in which powder ingredients are handled often have a high particle load with high costs for cleaning and servicing equipment. Poor air quality can make it difficult to reach standards for technical cleanliness. Contamination of products and the spread of mold spores are other difficult challenges, detrimental to the quality and shelf life of the products as well as the health of the consumers. When inhaled, powder ingredients cause serious health problems, both in the short and in the longer term. From respiratory problems and allergies to cardiovascular diseases and lung cancer. Having a lot of particles from powder ingredients in the air is also a severe explosion and fire hazard, especially in bakeries.
