Removing hazardous airborne contaminants from the manufacturing process is an important part of creating a safe working environment. Exposure to dust and fumes cannot only reason long-term health problems for operators but can additionally damage machinery, reduce productivity and lower the quality of end products.
How Do Dust Extraction Systems Function?
The main objective of the extraction system is to remove waste products from the process. For this, a suitable hood is located as close as possible to the process, which can be connected to a dust system routed through the workspace connecting to several machines.
The Dust Extraction Systems is then connected to an appropriate air mover, usually, a centrifugal fan, which will handle the necessary duty of the system. Depending on the materials extracted, the contaminated air can either be filtered before returned to the workspace or exhausted directly into the atmosphere.
There are numerous types of filters and fans each having benefits for different applications. It is important to select the correct filter media, filtration speeds, and fan sizes for different materials to prevent problems from arising. Blockages, media saturation, and dust capture issues are common with badly designed equipment.
It is also important to make sure that the system complies with HSG258, which outlines correct capture and airflow velocities, and the ATEX directive, which relates to equipment for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.
SAKSHAM specializes in designing and engineering modified extraction systems to suit a range of industries and makes sure that workplaces comply with current laws. Their team has decades of collective experience in designing energy-efficient as well as reliable Dust Extraction Systems for businesses across India.
Benefits of Extraction Systems
Moreover the obvious health and safety benefits of industrial dust extraction systems, there are numerous other benefits to making the investment & having a suitable solution installed.
Contaminated air containing dust particles can impact the efficiency of machinery. Dust build-up can damage parts of the process increasing maintenance and causing downtime, as well as in extreme cases causing fires or explosions.
In a few cases, businesses can profit from the waste wood collected by our Dust Extraction System. SAKSHAM can design material handling systems that enable businesses to efficiently process their wood waste materials & potentially earn a return on investment.
#3: Product Quality
Dust build-up on products during the manufacturing phase can potentially reduce the quality of the finish. Extracting all the harmful dust from the work environment can make sure a consistent high-quality finish.
Given the harmful health effects, contaminated air can have on employees, there are strict rules and regulations to make sure a safe working environment. Having a well-designed dust extraction system installed in your workplace gives the best chance of fulfillment with the relative regulations.
Always ensure to work with experienced dust extraction experts, like SAKSHAM. They can assess your premises to identify hazards & discuss the perfect solution for you whether you require a simple small bag unit, or a multi-faceted waste handling system.
