According to Active Air Rentals , airborne paper dust, aerosols, oil mist, ink dust, ozone are likely to be the causes of eye, throat and skin irritations, which can lead to permanent hyper sensitivity and contamination. Within the production process, this could lead to product recall, production loss, financial loss, fall in consumer confidence or an explosion risk if related to certain dust particles like flour, sugar or timber dust.
The FD 090 dust extractors from Active Air Rentals feature:
- Robust and sturdy design
- Effective filtration
- Energy efficient functioning
- Standard power point functioning
- No installation
- Fine and large particle filtration
According to WorkCover NSW:
Dusty work processes should be isolated if possible. An exhaust ventilation system is often needed to suck dust away. Even the larger dust particles that don't get to the lungs can cause problems. Dust in the nose and in the tubes leading to your lungs can irritate them, causing rhinitis or bronchitis.
If too much dust enters the lungs it can overwhelm the lungs’ own defences. Dust particles and dust-containing macrophages can collect in the lung tissues and damage them. Some types of dust, such as silica and asbestos, cause permanent scarring in the lungs. This is called fibrosis. Some dusts, such as asbestos, cause lung cancer. Some dusts (for example many animal, grain and wood dusts) can trigger an allergic reaction by the lungs. These types of dusts can also trigger asthma attacks.
Organic dusts (flour, grain, wood, coal, metal and sulphur dust) can be an explosion hazard. If a dense cloud of any of these dusts forms or if layers of these dusts accumulate, then one spark or even a hot surface can ignite it.
