Industrial dust, mist & fume collection

Manufacturing & Machinery

Being in the manufacturing industry, you know that virtually every process creates some type of dust, mist or fume. It is important to protect employees and equipment on a day-to-day basis. Air filtration started in industrial facilities to protect the HVAC system and increase the yield in processes, thereby increasing profit dollars.

Large particles produced from machinery, fine particles consistent with any process that involves high activity in process or with people and gaseous contaminants are all problems that may be addressed with air filtration. Here we can show you how to protect your workers, equipment and processes in any facility.

Make sure your dust collection equipment is safe & compliant

Created 06 October 2023

Dust collection systems are all safety devices and thus state-of-the art modern methods of validation and certification are required. Furthermore it is vital to ensure that the system is still in compliance after perhaps changed process conditions, to provide maximum safety for personnel and the facility. It is also recommended to carry out quality audits, process reliability surveys and annual safety inspections.

dust & fume extraction from laser and plasma cutting applications

Created 13 June 2023

Laser cutting, plasma cutting and oxy-fuel cutting are different machining processes used in the metal producing and metalworking industries, using energy in various forms to cut virtually any shape from iron and nonferrous materials out of sheets or large slabs. During the processes, the materials heat up, melt and cause harmful emissions. If not controlled properly, this airborne dust and fumes pose health risks for operators and cause damage to machinery.

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.

Dust collectors are necessary safety systems which have to be maintained properly

Created 24 June 2022

Dust collectors are necessary safety systems in many manufacturing and processing plants, thus as in the food processing industry. But if they are not designed, installed and maintained properly, these systems themselves can cause serious problems. In this eBook we highlight 10 ways how to make sure your dust collection system is up to the tasks of keeping workers safe, maximising production uptime and meeting regulatory compliance.
