Dust Extraction

Dust extraction should be a major consideration in almost every industrial setting. The many types of dust created by day-to-day industrial activities can lead to serious health problems and decreased productivity in the workplace. An effective dust extraction system will reduce your employees exposure to dangerous dust particles and help them get on with their daily tasks and activities, distraction free.

The Impact
of Dust

Dust is hazardous to those who work in industrial settings in more ways than you may think. So health and safety managers have to be mindful of employee health, whilst balancing tight operational budgets. Employees working in a dusty environment risk developing long-term and serious health problems if their exposure to dust isn’t managed properly. Furthermore, dust particles in a manufacturing environment can damage expensive machinery if a dust extraction system is not in place.

Explosive Dust

Many types of dust are highly flammable and have the potential to cause explosions on site. Our ATEX approved systems are perfect for food manufacturing, grinding, metal processing and more.

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

Wood Dust

Wood dust can cause serious long term health problems such as asthma, and hardwood dust can affect the lungs and cause cancer. Specific guidance from the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) regarding wood dust can be found in their Workplace Exposure Limits document. There is a wood-dust exposure limit (WEL) of 5mg/m3, and it is the responsibility of onsite managers to ensure that these limits are maintained.
