Metalworking

Metalworking is a widespread industrial application that encompasses several processes including dry metal grinding, buffing/polishing, welding, plasma/laser cutting and other related processes which produce hazardous fumes, smoke, dust and sparks.

Metalworking is one of the most dangerous applications for workers so hazards from its processes come in many forms. Some of the gases produced, mostly from dry processing machines and cutting, can prove dangerous if ventilation is inadequate such as carbon dioxide and ozone as they have the potential to combust or explode when collected. Certain processes like machine work are more dangerous as they tend to have heavy smoke and dust emissions. Exposure to these fumes is known to cause respiratory and neurological problems including Metal Fume Fever and various forms of cancer. Metallic fumes especially, as they are toxic when inhaled. In addition to definite health risks, uncontrolled metalworking fumes/dusts results in reduced productivity, loss of quality control, maintenance issues as microscopic particulates can affect sensitive electronics and even environmental complications.

Exposure to these dusts and fumes is governed by OSHA and monitored by other organizations. We highly recommend familiarizing yourself with the statutory parameters. View Laws & Regulations

To minimize these risks, implement quality air filtration products and systems. Below is an outline of the solutions we recommend.
