Material Processing

Heavily contaminated air in process industries can disrupt process efficiency and pose health, safety and environmental risks. Robust air filtration and corrosion control solutions help you effectively mitigate these industry issues.

Contamination can include heavy dust levels, explosive dusts and molecular pollutants. They result in odours, corrosive reactions, and can even pose a toxic threat to operators and the environment. Our fit-for-purpose air filtration solutions provide outstanding long-term performance in harsh operating conditions.

Mitigate combustion risks & protect from dust explosions

Created 14 November 2022

Almost all industrial manufacturing, processing or packaging applications generate dust as a side effect. Many of these dusts are both combustible as well as explosive, and removing them from the work place can significantly reduce the risk of serious accidents. It is estimated that there are approximately 2,000 dust explosions in Europe annually. Most of these are minor but some are very destructive. So by extracting the dust, the risk in the production is reduced, but unless the extraction system is safe the risk is just moved.
