Coexhaust is committed to providing effective solutions for dust collection in the packaging industry, which encompasses a diverse range of materials, including food and paper. Given the potential explosiveness of many dust particles in this industry, whether for the health of workers breathing in dust-laden air or to prevent explosions, source capture and the right dust collecting equipment are of paramount importance and can make a significant difference.
Path of dust and fumes:
The capture of dust and gases involves three essential phases to ensure the safety of workers and the environment:
Capture: Our source capture equipment, strategically placed at the origin of dust emissions, promptly draws particles into the arm as soon as they are released into the air, preventing the formation of a dust cloud and rapid dispersion.
Transport: Once the particles enter the arm, they are efficiently transported through a ducting system towards the third step, a filtration system.
Filtration/Evacuation: After entering the ducting system, the dust can be directed either outside or through a filtration system for redistribution inside the facility, contributing to energy savings and financial resource conservation.
Combustible dust risks:
Addressing combustible dust hazards is a top priority in dust collection for the packaging industry. Our experts are ready to guide you through the complexities of dust dangers, ensuring compliance with requirements and standards such as those set by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and ATEX standards. They will assist you in selecting the right products to guarantee the safety of everyone in the working environment. To determine if your dust is combustible, you can refer to the OSHA dust poster on combustible dust.
Source capture and dust collection for the packaging industry have been proven as the best and most efficient methods to protect workers, equipment, and the environment.
