Industry challenges

Food Ingredient Powders covers a wide range of various powdered ingredients, which are typically used in formulation of processed food products. An increasing global demand for quality and safe food products offers an opportunity for formulation of processed foods. Food Ingredient powders are also used in confectionary products. Food Ingredients are often derived from different categories of starch containing natural products and protein fractions from the same categories of natural vegetable products. Food Ingredient products can also cover a category of dairy based ingredients or a combination, and Food and Dairy based ingredients represents often opportunities to make products, which demand higher prices and flavor, emulsifying and stabilising ingredients are also food ingredient components used in formulated processed foods. Common requirements to process equipment is very investment cost effective solutions, specialized to meet specific process requirements, flexibility and processors requirements to design standards and processing and hygiene needs.

Turning powder loss into increased revenue and profits

With a Simatek bag filter, you not only limit emissions to comply with regulatory requirements, you also increase your bottom line and profits through powder recovery. With typical payback periods of less than three years and with at technical and economic lifetime of more than 20 years, a Simatek bag filter will generate significant increased revenue and a better bottom line year after year.

Clik here to calculate your increased revenue and profits.


Powder loss from spray dryers using a conventional cyclone solution is typically in the range of 0.5 to 1.5% of powder production. Our bag filter technology can reduce this to less than 5 mg/Nm³ corresponding to a loss of less than 0.02% of the powder production.
