Manufacturing dust collection
Manufacturing dust collection involves every type of dust that can be produced with any kind of material, whether it be processed by folding, cutting, welding, cleaning, sand blasting, grinding, or buffing, source capture is needed to be in line with the international guidelines and different codes. With so many different types of dust, workers and their environment must be free of pollutants to maintain a productive work. Removing dust can also prevent premature breakage of equipment, generating unwanted and unexpected costs.
Path of dust and fumes
The capture of dust and gases happens in three phases which should not be neglected to ensure safety of workers and the environment:
- Capture: With our source capture equipment placed right at the origin of the dust emissions, the particles are drawn into the arm as soon as they are projected in the air preventing a cloud of dust and quick spread.
- Transport: Once the particles have entered the arm, they are then transported through a ducting system towards the third step, a filtration system.
- Filtration/Evacuation: Once the dust has entered the ducting system, it can either be directed towards the exterior or through a filtration system to be redistributed inside the facility, saving energy and financial resources.
Combustible dust risks
Combustible dust is one of the biggest hazards in dust collecting. Our experts will help you navigate dust dangers to meet all requirements and standards such as NFPA standards. They will guide you towards the right products to ensure safety for everyone in the working environment. To know if your dust is combustible, you can consult the OSHA dust poster of combustible dust.
