Recognizing and reducing the risks of combustible dust in tobacco and food production

16-10-2019

Organic dust material – sugar, flour, grain, spices and wood, for example – are just as combustible as metal dust. Minimizing the risks of a severe, or even fatal, explosion requires awareness – from both management and operators – as well as equipment that can adequately capture the dust and remove it from the production process.

Welding fume - health risks involved

The health risks of welding fume, and how to reduce them in the workshop

03-09-2019

In 2017, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) released new scientific evidence showing that exposure to mild steel welding fume can cause lung cancer, and possibly kidney cancer, in humans. As a result, mild steel welding fume has been reclassified as a human carcinogen in the United Kingdom, and it is likely that other countries will follow suit. Moreover, this recent discovery indicates that all welding fume should be seen as potentially carcinogenic, and that measures will need to be taken in order to reduce the health hazards caused by welding fume exposure.

The benefits of smart and communicative filter systems

19-08-2019

IoT technology and artificial intelligence are reshaping industrial processes. By gathering data, applying analytics and extracting insights, companies can understand, monitor and maintain the performance and quality of their systems like never before. This is certainly the case with industrial filters as well.

Vehicle exhaust extraction systems provide safer workplaces for emergency personnel and mechanics

28-06-2019

In a work environment where hazardous fumes are present, having an efficient and convenient exhaust extraction system in place is essential. Some emergency vehicles, such as fire trucks, emit diesel exhaust fumes. These are dangerous particulates, which must be removed in a way that ensures both the safety of the personnel and the ability of vehicles to quickly be dispatched from the station in the event of an emergency.

28-05-2019

While highly useful in many different industrial processes, neat oil can be a challenging substance to handle. The fact that it is a fire hazard is widely known, but the general awareness surrounding its aerosol emissions is generally much lower.
