Proactively managing dust and fume extraction is important for two primary reasons: protecting the health of workers and other people on site, and complying with the law.
If inhaled, dust and fumes can be seriously hazardous to health. Continuous exposure can cause severe respiratory diseases. That’s why strict regulation is in place. If you do not comply with it you can be hit with fines (which are increasing all the time). Some Directors are even receiving suspended prison sentences. Every year, the HSE publish statistics about health and safety in the workplace.
TYPES OF HAZARDOUS FUMES AND DUST:
There are numerous types of dusts and fumes that can occur in the workplace. Here are some common examples.
Dust extraction – examples of high risk dusts:
* Food dusts like flour dust.
* Woodworking dust.
* Construction dust.
Fume extraction – examples of high risk fumes:
* Fumes from welding.
* Fumes from painting
* Soldering fumes.
* Chemical fumes.
If any of these dusts or fumes, or other types are present in your workplace, it is essential to make sure you have a regulation-compliant dust extraction and/or fume extraction system.
HOW IT WORKS:
In welding fume extractor, unclean air is drawn by the suction motor, and move energetically through the washable stainless steel mesh filter, which hold the large dust particles. Then, the air goes through fine filter fabric, where the fine dust particles are filtered. Residual air stream passes into the strong electric field, where particulate takes an electrical charge. Then, the charged particles pass into a collector plate unit which is made of a sequence of equally spaced parallel plates. Every alternate plate is charged with similar polarity (6 Kv to 7Kv) as the particles; while attract as well as collect the contaminants, they repel. These plates hold the contaminants until they are washed away. Additional air pass into the gas stage activated carbon filter. Here activated carbon absorbs the toxic gases. Then pure air sent out through the exhaust line to the atmosphere.
