Food Safety: AERZEN has the ISO 22000 Certificate for effective risk management The management system for food safety ISO 22000 unifies the standards landscape at international level. AERZEN is one of the first companies in the compressed air industry worldwide to comply with ISO 22000 - and, thus, underlines the importance of product safety, especially in the food industry. The certificate is valid for all blowers and compressors built by AERZEN at its headquarters in Lower Saxony. AERZEN products are often used in the food and animal feed industry.Process air solutions from AERZEN are used in many ways in the food and feed industry. The confidence of plant manufacturers and manufacturing final customers is correspondingly high. With ISO 22000 certification, the technology leader is taking process safety to a new level in numerous food-related applications, such as pneumatic conveying of powders and granulates or the loosening of bulk materials. Especially in the food industry, it is crucial to be able to rely on process air that is really free from impurities such as oil, abrasion or insulating material. For a good reason, AERZEN has developed silencers without absorption materials for example and equips them with a special spark arrester in view of explosion protection. Structured identification of potential hazardsWith the uniform framework for action, risks in the direct and indirect environment of the food production chain can be safely identified. The structured identification of potential hazards, then, forms the basis for effective risk management. As already successfully practiced in other management standards, the continuous improvement process (CIP) is an essential tool for sustainable process improvements in ISO 22000. For AERZEN the certification according to ISO 22000 represents in this context a further international component for product safety.
