When dust particles become airborne they can threaten employee health, contaminate products and/or cause combustible dust incidents. Using a high-efficiency dust collection system helps to reduce those risks and keep your facility in compliance with local HSE regulations.

Mitigate combustion risks & protect from dust explosions

Created Friday, 9 September 2022

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.
