Many industrial air cleaners may be efficient for other industries; even made from high-quality parts, BUT not compliant towards the food industry demands. Many existing systems with pockets and crevices in their design are difficult to clean because of dust and particles being collected, as well as not being fully sealed. This can compromise the functionality and safety of the system.
The air handling unit, QleanAir FS 70 FG (Food Grade), is a complete system redesign with an emphasis on hygiene within food production; enhancing the safety, quality, and efficiency of operations, and preservation of food.
Why a dedicated air handling, filtration system for the food industry?
A major point of consideration for the design of this unit was the Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP).
The food industry is a unique entity of its own. There are many variables that can contribute to the health of both products, people, packaging, and operations, simply due to air quality. Anything from premature spoilage/staleness of food, to the health of workers and consumers from tainted food are on the minds of every food plant and manufacturer.
We have spent months consulting with plant managers at top food manufacturers and quality assurance professionals/risk assessment specialists within different sectors of food production and processing, finding out what has been missing in the market in terms of their strict demands, expectations, and wish list that they would want in an ideal, air handling system.
What we found out was that current systems in the market, even though they may be adequate at filtering air, were not optimized for the food industry. – Some even contributing to dangerous conditions.
Many systems were permeable in some way or another, Inconsistent filtering efficiency, hard to clean and disinfect, clogged often, not suitable for sensitive areas of production, did not come with an included, regularly scheduled and/or customizable service plan, cleaning chemicals showed signs of corrosion on the units, etc. – Essentially, an accident waiting to happen.
We dedicated months upon months of completely redesigning our already award-winning technology within our best-selling, industrial air cleaner, the QleanAir FS 70, to solve all of these challenges and more, in helping future proof safety and operations for food manufacturers.
The FS 70 FG’s unique design, along with its service plan makes it a complete solution for the food industry.
Which certifications does the FS 70 FG have?
For products that process food, there are strict standards and clear guidelines on design and material choices to avoid hygienic hazards; however, there are no strict product hygiene standards for equipment in the facilities that will not process the food, handle ingredients or provide freshwater or ventilation. For these products, according to the EG852/2004 directive, the food producer must do their own hygiene risk analysis as part of the food production facility.
What type of filtration and filters does the FS 70 FG use?
Each unit can be completely customized in terms of the type of filters/

The QleanAir FS 70 FG has a large intake on the front of the unit to maximize intake volume, and to reduce the risk of involuntary blockage. For safety reasons, the intake is protected by a screen/grid. The filters are placed right behind the inlet grid to avoid cavities where particles and contaminants may accumulate over time.
Using a multi-stage filtration technique, airborne particles and contaminants are effectively separated from the air. The QleanAir FS 70 FG is equipped with a set of filters adapted to your unique needs. Right from installation, we make sure that we live up to our promises through measurements of particle reduction with monitoring of the units.
After the air is purified from airborne particles and contaminants, it is returned to the room for optimal recirculation. Special accesories are available as add-ons to create a more flexible solution.
