METAL INDUSTRY

Solutions for high temperature and abrasive dust particles.

metals-1

ALUMINUM

The aluminum manufacturing process generates dust which may include aluminum powder, oxides and other chemicals.

battery

BATTERY MANUACTURING

The primary health concern in battery manufacturing is lead exposure which could be the result of any operation in which battery plates, lead scrap or oxide is handled. Lead dust is a serious problem and the EPA and OSHA have strict guidelines relating to its capture and disposal.

foundry

FOUNDRY

Processes of the foundry industry are complex, generate dust and are under the scrutiny of the EPA, OSHA and other regulatory agencies. The particulate dust consists of the oxides of the metals, minerals from the additives, as well as the volatile metals.

plasma

PLASMA & LASER CUTTING

The plasma & laser cutting industry generates enormous amounts of very fine dust particles. Therefore, this type of operation requires an air filtration solution that ensures stable differential pressure and high efficiency.

smelting-2

SMELTING

Dust from the smelting, especially lead, needs to be handled under strict guidelines, and also disposed of in an approved manner.

STEEL

We have a variety of pulse-jet and reverse-air bag solutions to capture the dust generated by steel industry processes.

DRY WELDING FUMES

Welding produces fumes and gasses that typically have small particulate size. Ventilation and extraction of these fumes are critical for employee safety. In addition welding produces sparks which can cause fires if proper filtration does not occur.

OILY WELDING FUMES

Welding produces fumes and gasses that typically have small particulate size. Ventilation and extraction of these fumes are critical for employee safety. In addition welding produces sparks which can cause fires if proper filtration does not occur.

WELDING / GRINDING

Combining the welding and grinding processes results in small particulate release as well as fumes and gasses that typically have small particulate size. Filter media dust collectors such as bag houses are usually able to capture these fine, light particles.
