Dust & Fume Safety

MAKE-IT-SAFE MONDAY

When it comes to proper ventilation in the workplace, it’s important to address dust and fume safety. When it comes to industrial ventilation equipment, it can be difficult to properly evaluate a dust collector’s capabilities. It’s important to achieve high air-quality in the workplace and there is a wide range of variables that you should consider when purchasing a dust and fume collector. Today, let us focus on five specific things you can consider when purchasing ventilation equipment.


1. Durability and Usability

A well-designed dust collector should come ready to use with nothing more than on site electricity and compressed air. Choosing a complete package dust collector eliminates the need to coordinate a complex installation.

2. Controls and Wiring

For years, the best way to improve the performance of a dust and fume collector was to hire an electrician to wire and install an add-on control panel to automate specific functions. These days, companies are designing ventilation equipment that comes equipped with an intuitive electronic control panel to automate the entire process. When you’re purchasing a new dust collector be sure to look for machines that start and stop instantaneously as a welder or machine operator works.

3. Efficiency

It’s important to look into the efficiency of the dust collector and how long it can perform before the efficiency starts decreasing. Some collectors have advanced pulse-cleaning technology that utilizes a more highly engineered filter mechanism to help increase peak efficiency for a longer period of time.


4. Longevity

This one is simple, how long are the filters projected to last? Three months? A year? Will they be simple to replace when the time does come?

5. Manufacturer 

This one is also straightforward; does the manufacturer have a good reputation and customer service? You need to be confident that if something does go wrong with your ventilation equipment that the manufacturer will be cooperative and will help resolve the issue as quickly as possible. 

Thank you for your time and attention. Let’s make it safe this Monday.
