Industrial Dust Extraction

Almost every industrial setting requires a dust extraction system. The many types of dust created by day-to-day industrial activities can lead to serious health problems and even cause a general lack of productivity in the workplace, causing detrimental effects to both your staff and your business’s output.  

Here at Airmatic, our high-quality dust extraction system will reduce exposure levels to your employees to protect their health and wellbeing, without disrupting their daily tasks and activities.

How do dust extraction systems work?

An industrial dust extraction system works by collecting dust and particulates from the air through a filter. Upon capturing unwanted matter, the filter will separate it so it can emit the now purified air back into the environment, supporting healthier working conditions for all.

The Impact
of Dust

Employees can develop serious long-term health problems if exposed to dust on a regular basis. This includes heart and lung disease, respiratory problems, cancer, asbestosis, and silicosis. If health and safety managers fail to comply with HSE regulations, they could risk prosecution. 

Not only this, dust particles in a manufacturing environment can cause extensive damage to expensive machinery by entering and abrading moving parts, alongside impacting the overall appearance of your workplace. Therefore, to avoid expensive repairs, and to ensure your workplace’s upkeep, installing a dust extraction system is a cost-effective and long-term solution.

Explosive Dust

Many types of dust are highly flammable and have the potential to cause dangerous explosions on-site. Our ATEX approved industrial dust extraction systems are perfect for food manufacturing, grinding, metal processing and more, crafted with care to comply with strict health and safety requirements. 

We are proud to work in partnership with Woodcock & Wilson – an esteemed Fan Manufacturer – to be able to offer the UK’s only externally accredited ATEX fan systems, alongside our ATEX compliant dust extraction systems. 

With a dust extraction system consisting of anti-static filters, anti-blowback valves, and spark proof fans, it’s perfectly safe for use in a potentially explosive environment.

Wood Dust

Now regarded as a crucial part of manufacturing processes, it’s essential that woodwork industries stay on top of wood dust control. Excess levels of wood dust in the air can cause serious long-term health problems such as asthma, and hardwood dust can lead to respiratory problems, alongside causing cancer – particularly of the nose.  

Specific guidance from the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) regarding wood dust can be found in their Workplace Exposure Limits document, which highlights that the wood dust exposure limit is 5mg/m3. It’s essential that all on-site managers adhere to COSHH (The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) regulations, to ensure that these limits are maintained. When relying on a dust extraction system to do just this, guaranteeing optimum health and safety in the workplace has never been easier.
