The KMG Air Filtration Unit, or AFU, is a critical element in the food manufacturing and processing industry. Primarily serving as a dust containment unit, it's often found accompanying a seasoning fill hopper or the KMG Vacuum Lift System (VLS). At its core, the AFU's functionality is driven by an innovative design that prioritises hygiene and quality in snack food production environments. Notably, the AFU excels in creating a negative pressure environment within the seasoning fill hopper, effectively drawing suspended seasoning particles through a highly efficient cartridge filter. This ensures that the released air remains dust and contaminant-free. The AFU distinguishes itself further with its all-stainless steel construction, aligning seamlessly with the stringent cleanliness requirements of food processing facilities. A removable tray beneath the cartridge enhances practicality by allowing for easy deep cleaning, reducing maintenance needs and downtime. The KMG Air Filtration Unit is, undeniably, an indispensable asset for maintaining hygiene and quality standards in snack food production.

  • Higher Air Filtration Capacity Unit (AFU) demonstrates a great air filtration capacity, effectively purifying and cleansing the air within the production environment. This substantial filtration prowess is fundamental in ensuring that the air released into the atmosphere is free from contaminants, dust, and particulate matter.
  •  20% Increase in Fan Efficiency: An innovation that sets KMG’s AFU apart is its 20% increase in fan efficiency. This enhancement not only boosts the overall performance of the unit but also ensures a more energy-efficient operation. As energy conservation gains increasing significance, this feature aligns with the modern drive for sustainability.
  •  Modular Construction for Quick Strip Down: Practicality and ease of maintenance are integral to the AFU’s design. Its modular construction allows for quick and efficient disassembly and reassembly when necessary. This attribute minimises downtime, streamlining maintenance procedures for the benefit of productivity.
  • All Stainless Steel Construction – Hygienic Design: A hallmark of the KMG AFU is its impeccable hygienic design, constructed entirely from stainless steel. This construction choice ensures a corrosion-resistant and sanitary unit, compatible with the rigorous hygiene standards of the food processing industry.
  • Fewer Components: KMG’s AFU is engineered with a focus on simplicity and efficiency. It is purposefully designed with fewer components, reducing the potential points of failure, and simplifying upkeep. This streamlined approach guarantees reliability and minimises maintenance overhead.
