Food grade compressed air - guaranteed by Thorite

Friday 6th October 2006

Compressed air and fluid process systems specialist, Thorite, now offers a range of solutions to meet the stringent air quality needs of food processing industries and pharmaceutical manufacturing industries.

These solutions are possible thanks to a range of compressors and associated equipment guaranteed to produce food grade compressed air for "Contact", "Non-Contact" and "Non-Contact High Risk" applications, as laid down in the new Code of Practice developed by both the British Retail Consortium (BRC) and the British Compressed Air Society (BCAS).

As a Distributor or Charter Holder, Thorite is at the forefront of compressor development, able to provide guidance and technical expertise to ensure clean air for any application during food production processes. Thorite can also provide compressed air system health checks, plus a full range of maintenance programmes to satisfy the code's requirements.

Speaking of these specialist compressors Thorite's Marketing & Engineering Services Director, Ross Gowler, said: "Certain operations in food processing necessarily require compressed air to be in close contact with the products, with the possibility of contamination should any oil be present. Thorite can now specify, deliver, install and maintain compressors and air distribution systems which meet or exceed all current BCAS/BRC air quality standards. This not only ensures complete peace of mind for any operator who must have totally oil-free compressed air, but can also save money long term by providing the highest levels of energy efficiency."
