Dust Control Environment

Installing Air Pollution Control Systems / Dust extraction systems improve safety and protects your machinery by removing dust and shavings, rather than being sucked into the machine giving you a clearer line of sight. Not only do they keep your area clean whilst working, dust particles can pose a health risk when breathed in.

Dust extractors are essential tools to protect your personal health, ensuring that your machinery remains in top condition, saving you cleanup time, and generally creating a better and safer work environment for you.

dust collector is a system used to enhance the quality of air released from industrial and commercial processes by collecting dust and other impurities from air or gas. … It is distinguished from air purifiers, which use disposable filters to remove dust.

Dust collection systems

Dust collection systems are often part of a larger air quality management program that also includes large airborne particle filtration units mounted to the ceiling of shop spaces and mask systems to be worn by workers. Air filtration units are designed to process large volumes of air to remove fine particles (2 to 10 micrometers) suspended in the air. Masks are available in a variety of forms, from simple cotton face masks to elaborate respirators with tanked air — the need for which is determined by the environment in which the worker is operating.

In industry, round or rectangular ducts are used to prevent buildup of dust in processing equipment

Smaller Dust Collection Systems

Smaller dust collection systems use a single-stage vacuum unit to create suction and perform air filtration where the waste material is drawn into an impeller and deposited into a container such as a bag, barrel, or canister. Air is recirculated into the shop after passing through a filter to trap smaller particulate.

Larger Dust Collection Systems

Larger systems utilise a two-stage system, which separates larger particles from fine dust using a pre-collection device, such as a cyclone or baffled canister, before drawing the air through the impeller. Air from these units can then be exhausted outdoors or filtered and recirculated back into the work space.

Danger Of Neglect

Proper dust collection and air filtration is important in any work space. Repeated exposure to wood dust can cause chronic bronchitisemphysema, “flu-like” symptoms, and cancer Wood dust also frequently contains chemicals and fungi which can become airborne and lodge deeply in the lungs, causing illness and damage.
