DUST EXTRACTION

Exposure to dust is the leading cause of occupational asthma in the UK.

Correctly designed dust extraction systems will provide a safe working environment - protecting operators from the potentially harmful effects of dust inhalation and ensuring compliance with all relevant legislation.

We provide industrial dust control systems that capture dusts emitted at source through custom designed hoods and ducted systems. Dust filter selection is made dependent on the application, dust characteristics and filtration efficiencies. Where appropriate, mechanical pre-separators (eg cyclones) and high efficiency after filters (HEPAs) will also be installed.

Potentially explosive dusts are handled in appropriately certified ATEX equipment which includes features such as anti-static filter bags, earth bonding, explosion vent panels and non-sparking components.
