Challenges for extraction systems in the food industry

The production of foods such as gummy bears, baked goods, tea or coffee beans generates coarse and fine dust that covers all surfaces, spreads in the air and can lead to cross-contamination and allergies. In accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 852/2004 of the European Parliament are Strict hygiene regulations apply to food production hygiene regulations must be observed. To meet these requirements, extraction systems for the food industry must be made of stainless steel. We develop customized extraction solutions for your process and offer a comprehensive solution from collection to the pipe system. For explosive and combustible dusts, as in the case of flour or herbs, we offer special ATEX and fire protection designs.

  • Transport of raw and basic materials
  • Manual or mechanical working processes:
    grinding, shaping, mixing, kneading, dusting
  • Filling, decanting, mixing
  • Cleaning, packaging
  • Flammable and explosive dusts e.g. flour dust or spices
  • Plastic granules
  • Sand and dusts
  • Powder substances
  • Other bulk materials and free-flowing substances
  • Cereals, flour, starch
  • Dairy products
  • Coffee, tea and tobacco
  • Sugar, confectionery and cereals
  • Seeds, herbs and spices
  • Soups

Why extraction

Effective extraction in food production protects employees, machines and products from contamination by fine and coarse dust and ensures the quality of your products.

Hygiene & explosion protection in the food industry:

  • Extraction of coarse dust from the machines
  • Extraction and filtration of fine dust and aerosols
  • Use of stainless steel components in accordance with hygiene regulations
  • Compliance with ATEX directives for explosive dusts
  • Certified, high-quality filter media
  • Integration of pre-separators

The right extraction system specifically for your application


Your advantages

Our flexible extraction solutions adapt effortlessly to the complex production processes and high degree of automation in the food industry. Even special requirements such as process-integrated inline systems, special hygiene regulations or continuous operation can be met by the customized solutions. ABSAUGWERK not only gives you flexibility, but also optimum adaptation to the individual requirements of your production.


Hygiene deficiencies cause expensive recalls, fines and reputational damage. Safe filtration of combustible dusts is crucial to protect your employees and prevent fires or explosions.


Durable system components and individually configured extraction systems reduce operating and follow-up costs to a minimum.


Energy-efficient components and intelligent controls enable automatic power control as well as recirculation or exhaust air operation, while heat recovery saves energy and heating costs.


We support you worldwide via remote maintenance, from consultation to installation, and offer comprehensive after-sales service.

Customized extraction systems for the food industry

We configure our systems according to your application and guarantee maximum suction power with minimum energy consumption. Take advantage of our experience in the food industry to optimize your process together.

Cyclone pre-separator

Pre-separator are used with large quantities of material to protect the main filters. In the case of explosive media, they serve as spark traps to prevent fires and explosions.


For effective extraction of industrial emissions, the right capture element, such as an extraction arm or extraction hood, is crucial.


Captured media can be extracted directly via a pipe system or alternatively disposed of via a discharge system such as a bucket, drawer or (sludge) container.

Structure of the deduster

Our systems are available completely in stainless steel.

Explosion protection for extraction systems in the food industry

Explosion protection for extraction cabins Industrial processes such as grinding or deburring release not only visible but also invisible fine dusts that can trigger dangerous fires and explosions. Explosive dusts include organic substances such as flour, coffee or cellulose, as well as aluminum or magnesium. To prevent explosions, electrical components and other parts must be installed in compliance with ATEX.
