Soldering enables the joining of metal parts by melting a filler metal to attach wires and other metallic components. The fumes generated from melting solder especially solder containing Lead or Tin present are dangerous and require local ventilation to remove harmful smoke from the work area. Soldering application need to be properly ventilated to prevent toxic fumes from reaching the worker`s breathing zone.
Additive manufacturing continues to experience rapid growth as companies invest in 3D printing equipment capable of producing plastic and metals based parts. The 3D printing process generates toxic fumes and airborne dust when operators are post-processing and finishing parts.
Using any coated abrasive for sanding, polishing, or finishing introduces small amounts of both surfaces into the air. The particle size of the dusts produced in this application depends significantly on the abrasive’s grit size and composition, as well as the material being worked. Wood, metal, or plastics dusts each have specific health risks if inhaled.
Do you require painting or coating applications as part of the manufacturing or service process in your workplace? Industrial painting & coating are known to produce dangerous by-products such as VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and dust. Proper ventilation and filtration is a must, as working in close proximity to the fumes and particles created by the painting and coating process cause devastating health effects.
Laser and plasma cutting are two industrial applications that are used for a range of different projects. Laser cutting uses a focused laser beam that’s directed at the material to be cut, then vaporizes or melts it to create the finished surface or edge. Plasma cutting uses a jet of high velocity ionized gas that conducts electricity from the plasma cutter to the material. The work material is heated and melted, and the molten metal is blown away. Laser and plasma cutting are efficient ways to accomplish...
Any industrial work application that includes grinding and deburring is going to create dust that requires immediate filtration. Whether it is an angle grinder, die grinder or an automated grinding machine, dust and particles will pollute your workplace unless they are captured and filtered at the source. The key is to remove dust and particulate before it reaches the breathing zone of nearby workers. Depending on the nature of the work application, grinding and deburring can create airborne metal, composite,...
Poisonous gases, fumes and sparks are created anytime metals are welded together. It doesn’t matter what type of welding equipment is used or what type of metal is being welded. The fact that welding is among the most common industrial processes means that air filtration for welding and robotic welding is an important topic.
The location of the files in an appropriate environment is a necessary condition to preserve them properly. There are numerous studies that identify environmental pollution as the main problem for the conservation of historical objects. Acid gases, such as sulfur, nitrogen and carbon oxides, are the most widespread form of pollution, and they acidify archival materials, accelerating deterioration. The powder has hygroscopic properties, which results in an increase in the humidity of the material, causing the...
Applied to domestic refrigeration, Bioconservacion’s technology increases the shelf-life of fruit and vegetables, providing benefits to equipment manufacturers and consumers. As they mature, fruit and vegetables naturally produce ethylene. Ethylene accelerates maturation which is why systems that eliminate ethylene, VOCs and fungus spores from the environment are especially beneficial, as they lengthen the useful life of fruit and vegetables increasing shelf life by up to 25%.
Environments with an excess of suspended particles and/or contaminating gasses in the air may be unhealthy and might even cause harmful effects, increasing the risk of developing illnesses. To address these risks, vast numbers of public installations and buildings must provide air filtration solutions to ensure a high quality of air inside the building to safeguard the health and comfort of the occupants.
Within the industrial sector there are specific installations which should pay maximum attention to the protection of their control rooms against corrosion. This is because their activities generate highly corrosive gasses which need to be eliminated in case they affect the functioning of critical electrical equipment. This corrosion compromises the efficiency and safety and can affect the production process itself.
There are ever more uses of water in human activities that require its subsequent purification. Of this, treating this water in waste water treatment plants (WWTP) before releasing it into the ecosystem is in rising demand. Additionally, there is also an increasing need to treat solid waste in rubbish tips to minimise environment impact in this process.
Common Indoor Air Quality Problems in Schools: For the most part, schools are located in close proximity to the students. Students are driven to schools either on a bus or by a parent in a vehicle. Therefore, in the morning and after school there are high air pollution levels. If the school is near a manufacturing plant, a highway, a wastewater treatment plant, an airport, or other source of air pollution, the kids breath it in. Schools are chronically stretched for money and air quality is assumed to be good...
Air purification of ambient and indoor air in production facilities, such as the wood, stone and metal processing industry. In productiehallen binnen bijvoorbeeld de hout-, steen- en metaalverwerkende industrie, kan fijnstof of verbrandingsrook ontstaan. ENS Industries biedt oplossingen om uw omgevings- en binnenlucht schoon te houden.
