These solutions protect workers from breathing in unwanted dusts and keeps equipment from cluttering leading to premature breakage. Our products create a comfortable and suitable environment for workers impacting productivity for the best.

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.

Combustible dust risks

Combustible dust is one of the biggest hazards in dust collecting. Our experts will help you navigate dust dangers to meet all requirements and standards such as NFPA and ATEX standards. They will guide you towards the right products to ensure safety for everyone in the working environment. To know if your dust is combustible, you can consult the OSHA dust poster of combustible dust

Food processing dust collecting for the food and beverage industry is proven to be the best solution and the most efficient method to protect workers, equipment, and the environment.
