Dust collecting for the packaging industry

The packaging industry is very large and can involve food as much as paper. Many different types of dust can be created and as we know a large part of these particles are explosives. Whether it be for workers health breathing in dust laden air or to prevent explosion, source capture and the right dust collecting equipment is very important and will make the difference.

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 and ATEX 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.

Source capture and dust collecting for the packaging industry is proven to be the best solution and the most efficient method to protect workers, equipment, and the environment.
