The purpose of this information is to spotlight the importance to your business of investing in an effective industrial air filtration system.
Industrial workspaces require air filtration to minimise pollutants, maximise health, productivity, and quality of work; not to mention mitigate the risk associated with legislative non-compliance.
There can be dire consequences to businesses negligent in providing clean air for workers.
The outcomes of exposure to hazardous polluted air include irritants such as itchy eyes, coughing, headache, shortness of breath and feelings of fatigue. Prolonged exposure can potentially lead to severe lung complications.
Q: What is the solution?
A: A fume extractor
A fume extractor controls the environment trapping debris, fumes, filth, and harmful contaminants that may be circulating. In addition, the filtration system work in conjunction with a separate dryer that dehumidifies the filtered air and sends a flow of purified air back into the space.
From the Fanmaster extraction range – focus on Portable Welding Fume Extractors – they may look like creatures from out of space, but they are a must-have piece of gear performing a very serious role in health safety and wellbeing in workshops across the Country.
Welding fumes are killers; in fact, in March 2017, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) reclassified welding from Group 2B Possibly Carcinogenic to Humans to Group 1 Carcinogenic to Humans. Accordingly, Ventilation Measures in the SafeWork Australia Code of Practice for welding processes are vital to understand.
The Fanmaster Industrial Portable Fume Collector/Extractor range falls under “Local Exhaust Ventilation” via filtration.
In summary, industrial air filtration is imperative to the health and wellbeing of your team, reduces maintenance costs, and enhances equipment durability reducing energy costs so investing in a top-tier air filtration system has huge benefits all-round.
