Pulp and Paper

Pulp and Paper manufacturing is a very large industry as over 400 million tons of paper and cardboard are produced annually. On top of that, most all of its manufacturing processes produce hazardous dust. Some processes like cutting produce large, elongated dust particles, whereas processes like handling produce ultra-fine dust.

Large amounts of combustible dust, from all the processes, commonly settles on equipment and other facility surfaces. It only takes a spark to ignite this accumulation of combustible dust and if a fire starts, the formula for an explosion is complete. While initial explosions can be devastating, these explosions agitate settled dust, adding more fuel to the fire, which usually leads to a very powerful, disastrous secondary explosion sometimes destroying entire facilities. Areas within the pulp and paper plants that generate dry wood dust are even more susceptible to fire and explosions. Additionally, exposure to paper dust seriously affects the respiratory system and workers often suffer from asthma, chronic coughs, chest tightness, and other health issues after prolonged exposure.

Exposure to these dusts is governed by OSHA and monitored by other organizations that regulate safety. 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.
