Abschnitt 7.4 – 7.4 Removal of flour from sacks

During the open transfer of flour from sacks to containers, for example to mixing bowl or storage containers, measures must always be taken to reduce dust emission. Dust is largely avoided when a suitable working procedure is carried out, for example:

  • Carefully cutting the sack at the top and bottom with a suitable cutting tool,

  • Observing little drop heights and tipping the bag gently,

  • Using flour scoops,

  • Handling of empty sacks in such a way that they do not cause any further dust emissions.
