Safe and Dust-Free Production of Pet Food

Vitakraft pet care GmbH & Co. KG produces branded pet food for small animals. An existing (third-party) filtration system at the Bremen plant was replaced in order to ensure continued compliance with explosion prevention directives and to avoid (further) explosions. 
The machines to be extracted are designed to shred hay and package it in plastic bags for pet supplies. The dust should neither enter the plastic bag (end product) nor the disposal press.

Everything Provided by a Single Source
The wide product range of Keller enables them to offer a complete extraction system, covering the entire process from pre-separation to the required safety components. A condenser was installed to pre-separate the chaff. The condenser is a cellular wheel separator with a coarse screen. The bag filter was equipped with the necessary explosion and combustion prevention (burst discs, pro-flap, temperature sensor).

Expertise and Results are Highly Convincing
Vitakraft opted for the extraction system from Keller primarily because of their comprehensive expertise in consulting, and experience in explosion prevention, as well as their defining strategy for pre-separation. Eike Bootsmann, Project Manager at Vitakraft, is quite satisfied with his choice: "The specialists at Keller not only persuaded us in advance - [but] the system has [also] been operating absolutely reliably as of May 2021: We do not have any dust in the end product and the protective technology fully complies and ensures occupational safety - exactly what we were searching for."
