Metalworking

Increase production efficiency, reduce your environmental impact and keep your shop and workers safe. Our dust and fume collectors and air filters for metalworking work hard for you, so you can focus on getting the job done.

Depending on the industry, contamination from metalworking can include heavy dust levels, explosive dusts and molecular pollutants that are responsible for odor, corrosive reactions or toxic threat to operators and the environment. All of these require unique air filtration solutions that are purpose designed to provide high levels of long-term performance in potentially harsh operating conditions.

Clean air challenges in metalworking

The metalworking industry can include aerospace, buffing, polishing, grinding, laser cutting, plasma cutting, machining, metalizing, paint spraying, shot blasting, silos, welding, thermal spraying and more. Capturing the dust, smoke, mist or fumes generated during metalworking processes can create a unique challenge. Often, floor space is at a premium.

Camfil is an expert in industrial dust, mist and fume collectors that stop pollutants from entering the workspace and outside air, creating safer and cleaner environments. By combining the use of guidelines with our in-field experience and state-of-the-art filtration, Camfil will correctly size a cost- and space-saving filtration system that is reliable, durable and easy to maintain. Let us help you put in a safe dust and fume collection system.

3 good reasons to choose dust, mist and fume collectors and air filters from Camfil

  1. Improve respiratory health and comply with health & safety regulations.

    A well-designed and maintained dust and fume collection system prevents respiratory problems and keep facilities in compliance with current air quality requirements. It can thus help you to avoid potential long-term liability issues, too

  2. Extend machine life and reduce maintenance.

    The equipment that fabricating plants currently use has reached a new level of sophistication. Controls and other computerized systems are more sensitive than the machinery of 10 or 20 years ago. If fumes from metalworking processes like welding are not managed properly, electronic controls can fail, shutting down operations and requiring emergency repairs. This causes production downtime, frustration and costly losses in productivity.
  3. Save energy. 

    In cold climates, a proper fume ventilation system can significantly reduce your energy costs by recycling filtered air and lowering the need for costly makeup air.
