Hosokawa Micron Engineers Break Record  With Eleven Metre Wide Downflow Booth

25/01/2015

Hosokawa Micron Ltd has manufactured one of the widest Downflow Booths they have ever made. The 11m wide Downflow Booth was designed and manufactured using Hosokawa Micron’s modular Downflow Booth concept which delivers construction affordability alongside almost limitless size capability. Designed to meet the customer’s requirement for increased raw materials handling capacity, the 11m wide Booth encapsulates 8 IBC filling stations and was engineered to suit the layout and available factory space. The booth’s open fronted design uses no vertical supports offering unrestricted operator access into the booth and to the filling stations which makes for easy transfer of IBCs. Hosokawa Micron Ltd. commented, ‘By incorporating, into our modular build concept, a unique bracing system that supports and stabilises the full width of the booth,and prevents risk of twisting or bowing, we can meet requirements for larger, tailored, contained work spaces. A single booth rather than several smaller booths can also offer customers real economies of scale – in this instance, a single(rather than multiple) control panel(s) manages the operation: delivering a cost saving for the customer. ’ 

Downflow Booths  Protect Food Operatives from Airborne Dusts

25/01/2015

With a high incidence of workplace risk from respiratory sensitising dusts from grains, flour, egg protein, fish protein and ingredient additives, Hosokawa Micron Ltd, a leader in containment technology has responded to food industry demands for improved and safe levels of personnel and product protection and by developing a range of modular Downflow Booths. Capable of delivering Operator Exposure Levels of <1µg/m3 the booths also provide product protection from surrounding area contamination by creating a ‘clean processing zone’ minimizing cross contamination risk from other products or processes. The Hosokawa Downflow Booths have been designed to meet key demands for energy efficiency, low running cost and low operating noise. Their cost effective yet flexible modular design makes them suitable for a range of applications when it is necessary to undertake processing steps outside of a closed food processing machine, such as sampling, filling or packing operations. The low running costs of the booths can be attributed in part to the incorporation of highly effective and energy efficient motors and fans.
