Why having clean air in your factory or workshop is an easy and essential decision

2/13/2020

Bad air quality. It is a term that conjures up images of congested highways, smog-filled cities, and chimneys spewing out smoke; some outdoor environment that you would most likely want to avoid, or protect yourself from. But bad air quality can be a severe problem in indoors environments as well. In many factories, workshops, and other industrial facilities, particulates from dust and/or fumes pose a danger to the personnel as well as the production process at large. However, there are smart, easy and efficient ways of averting these dangers, and ensuring clean air even in challenging industrial environments.

12/17/2019

In early March 2018, Volvo Bil AB opened its new Volvo Service Center in Torslanda in Gothenburg, Sweden. The dealership and the workshop, which had previously been located across the street from one another, were merged into a singular state-of-the-art service facility, serving approximately a thousand Volvo cars every week. A centralized oil distribution and extraction system, as well as a centralized vacuum cleaning system – both delivered and installed by Nederman – contribute to making it a modern car workshop that is safe, smart and sophisticated.

Increased awareness of welding fume health risks calls for more efficient means of fume extraction

11/11/2019

Mild steel welding is the most common method of welding today, essential to any industry that uses welding in its production process. Recent scientific evidence has indicated that the fumes generated by this process are in fact carcinogenic. While we are yet to see the full consequences of this discovery, it is evident that there is going to be an increased focus on the health and safety of welders, and the methods by which they can be guaranteed.

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

10/16/2019

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.
