Cleanliness and efficiency in animal food packaging

Customer: Gimborn
Extracted material: Animal feed residues
Industry: Food
Vacuum cleaner: DS 1220 (DustEx)

H. von Gimborn GmbH in Emmerich produces a broad range of animal feeds under its brands GimCat and GimDog. The company developed most of the roughly 600 different food and medicinal products itself and produces them in its own factories. The products are sold in 40 countries, and the company is a market leader in key segments.


Gimborn produces cat treats in stick and pellet form, along with other products, at its headquarters in Emmerich. Its machines are highly automated, yet flexible. Tabs, for instance, can be packaged in cycles of just 1.5 seconds.

Given the vast array of products and the many different flavours, product changes are routine and can be carried out very quickly. The only problem is that the packing line has to be run until empty and then thoroughly cleaned. A Ruwac vacuum cleaner handles the job.


The type DS 1220 vacuum cleaner is always used to clean dust residues around the packaging system or when the product is exchanged.

The DustEx version of the vacuum cleaner is essential, since the pellets, tabs and pellets are made of organic materials that are flammable in powder form and in combination with oxygen.

By using the vacuum cleaner, Gimborn ensures cats don't sniff out any fish residue when they get a poultry treat. The vacuum cleaner also helps keep production clean. This is not just a question of hygiene: it is also a requirement for dust explosion protection, since dust deposits can ignite when they are stirred up.
