An East Midlands bakery has invested in a centralised vacuum cleaning system designed and manufactured by market leaders BVC. The primary reason for the investment was the need to clean up relatively inaccessible areas such as silo penthouses and internal silo tops/bottoms.
The system enables centralised collection of waste product, therefore removing any health and safety issues of machines being moved by personnel up and down vertical cat ladders.
198 metres of pipe work and fittings are installed, interconnecting 18 hose connection points, serving six internal day bins four above and four below with a final point in front of the BVC static industrial vacuum cleaning machine located elsewhere.
The BVC Centurion model Ti80 industrial vacuum cleaner is located in a safe area which does not come in contact with the materials being extracted by the system and is powered by a 15 kw motor, the machine is protected by a vacuum relief valve which opens when no hoses are attached.
Displaced air is filtered within the BVC ‘clear flow’ filtration system and particles collected within a removable 80 litre bin at the base of the filter chamber with the bin provided with a lift and tip facility for emptying.
