Automobile Exhaust

Vehicule exhaust extraction

Dealerships and garages can all benefit from AQC’s source capture exhaust extraction equipment to keep carbon monoxide out. The black smoke produced by engines is directed to the ducts keeping the work environment clean. Workers who are exposed to these pollutants daily can work without worrying about damaging their health.

Carbon monoxide health risks

As we know, carbon monoxide is very dangerous and can have an impact on the health of workers being exposed to it daily whether it be in small or great quantities. Symptoms depend on the concentration and the length of the exposure but can vary from headache, fatigue, and malaise to vision problems, unusual behaviour, and carbon monoxide poisoning. Unfortunately, a constant exposure can result to permanent damage.

Path of dust and fumes

The capture of dust and gases happens in three phases which should not be neglected to ensure safety of workers and the environment:

  • Capture: With our source capture equipment placed right at the origin of the dust emissions, the particles are drawn into the arm as soon as they are projected in the air preventing a cloud of dust and quick spread.
  • Transport: Once the particles have entered the arm, they are then transported through a ducting system towards the third step, a filtration system.
  • Filtration/Evacuation: Once the dust has entered the ducting system, it can either be directed towards the exterior or through a filtration system to be redistributed inside the facility, saving energy and financial resources.

Source capture for carbon monoxide emissions is proven to be the best solution and the most efficient method to protect workers, equipment, and the environment.
