  • Trapped Key Interlocks for Electrostatic Precipitator

    KIRK safety interlocks protect the safety of your employees and equipment by ensuring a predetermined sequence of operations is followed every time, without fail. When performing maintenance on or emptying hoppers, electrodes in excess of 10,000 volts present a serious risk to life. KIRK trapped key interlocks require hazardous energy to be powered down and safely grounded before hopper door access is granted.

  • Pumps for Asphalt / Bitumen

    DESMI has a full range of different pumps and matching equipment supporting the handing of bitumen products. Including unique features suited for today’s needs and new polymer based formulations, we have the solution. For certain applications, we can offer proven sealing options, available is also a patented zero-leakage pump with a state of the art magnetic coupling. This pump offers a total protection against spillage and vapour, which may create environmental hazards. Electrical heating is an alternative to heating by liquid or steam. Applications tend to fall into four categories: Production (refining), distribution (terminals), hot mix (paving mixtures), and roofing (filled asphalts). Refineries and terminals often use steel pumps, while hot mix asphalt plants use mainly cast iron pumps with heating jacketed, and either packing or mechanical seals. Roofing plants are generally pumping highly abrasive, filled asphalts for shingle manufacturing.

  • Oil Mist and VOC Collection

    Oil Mist is Unbreathable. Oil based cutting fluids are often used in CNC milling, machining and metalworking. During production, these processes can produce a mist that can threaten sensitive electronic circuitry and presents serious physical risks to employees (accidents from slipping, breathing hazards).? What are the risks in a workshop with oil mist? Exposure to oil mist for a prolonged period of time can cause a number of health issues. Dermatitis Eye, nose and throat irritation Damage to the respiratory system Bronchitis Bronchial asthma Chronic cough Slip hazards (falling, dropping of tools/materials)? How can you protect yourself?? Mist collectors are effective at capturing and filtering harmful oil mist pollution. They can either be installed on individual machines or to a central location. Having the correct oil mist filtration equipment installed will protect your employees from unnecessary health risks. In addition to this, it will also help to protect your business from long term liability and healthcare costs related to workplace air contamination.?

  • Soldering Fume Extraction

    Soldering fumes are Unbreathable. 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. There are a number of different industries such as the electronics assembly industry and electronics repair comapnies who must deal with the hazards of solder smoke. Fumes created by automated PCB soldering including wave soldering machines, handheld soldering irons, torch brazing and furnance brazing are often ignored because of the small volume of smoke generated. However, these applications still require careful consideration as dangerous fumes can impair employee’s respiratory tracts depending on the filler metals used. Because manual soldering applications require working with tiny components, workers end up positioning their heads right above toxic rosin or lead solder fumes with a direct exposure into their throat, nasal passages and lungs, and as a result, they can experience respiratory complications. Rosin irritation can cause various side effects and the inhalation of lead fumes is carcinogenic. As lead oxide smoke collects in your lungs, it can be transferred into your bloodstream. Diversitech recommends installing soldering fume extraction equipment to prevent the inhalation of dangerous fumes. These ventilation units will not only protect each person working at a soldering station when installed and positioned correctly, but they will also prevent fumes from contaminating other worker’s lungs.?
