Heavy duty exhaust extraction

Source capture, dust collecting, and heavy duty exhaust extraction is also used for the defense teams. We can think about maintenance on automobiles and tanks. The exhaust systems to protect workers health is always a priority. Other source capture equipments are for repairs made on these vehicles by means of welding, which create a lot of fumes. The adjustments on these sorts of vehicles are much more complicated than the ones on simple cars. The materials are much thicker and tougher.

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.

Welding fume risks

According to OSHA, we know that inhaling welding fumes can cause short term problems such as dizziness, nausea or even irritation of the nose, eyes, and throat. The consequences on the long term can be fatal, the prolonged exposure to welding fumes can cause lung, larynx, and urinary tract cancer. Damage to the nervous system and to the kidneys are also a known long-term side effect.

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 duct 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 and dust collecting is proven to be the best solution and the most efficient method to protect workers, equipment, and the environment.
