Project Detail

As a world leader in the food industry, Heinz Watties needed a dust extraction system for their dry packing area that would meet their high standards. Airtight Solutions was commissioned to provide a reliable solution that would combat the high level of airborne dust caused by the packing process and not being correctly extracted by the existing system.
The existing dust extraction system in the dry packing area was not up to the standards that Heinz Watties prides itself in. The result was a high level of airborne dust, caused by the packing process. This made for an unhealthy working environment for the staff.

By carefully assessing the problem, Airtight Solutions were able to specify the correct filtration requirement and eliminate the health risks faced by the workers due to the airborne dust. The solution included a modular dust extraction system and full ducting system featuring custom stainless steel capture hoods.

The end result met Heinz’s brief down to the smallest detail, providing them with the solution they required. Thanks to the new system, the factory’s air quality improved drastically, with workers no longer being concerned about airborne contaminants.

Managers and production line workers alike are thrilled with the performance of the Airtight Solutions system and the significantly improved work environment.
