Soldering Fume Extraction

by DiversiTech     based in Montreal, QUEBEC (CANADA)

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.?

Oil Mist and VOC Collection

by DiversiTech     based in Montreal, QUEBEC (CANADA)

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.?

Contaminated Water Filtration

by Omnitec Design, Inc.     based in Mukilteo, WASHINGTON (USA)

Industry standard best practices are designed to ensure that all work done on Asbestos Abatement Projects is done to the highest level of safety and risk management. Containment of the generated waste water fibers and debris is critical to proper compliance and worker safety. If these fibers are not captured and contained, they can be very harmful for the environment, on-site workers and the occupants of neighboring areas. Exactly how you approach your containment and capture solutions will depend on the individual site’s risk assessment report. If you need help identifying solutions to the issues raised in the report, feel free to contact our customer service department and we can review your options together. Water from showers at Asbestos Abatement sites is often contaminated with asbestos fibers from washing protective gear and equipment. This water must be filtered prior to discharge into a drain.

Smoke generator devices for lev testing, spray booth clearance testing & air testing

by Concept Smoke Systems     based in Maidenhead, UNITED KINGDOM

For many years, materials containing isocyanate have been the single biggest cause of occupational asthma in the UK. Vehicle paint sprayers are 80 times more likely to develop occupational asthma than workers in other industries. This is caused by the inhalation of the fine paint mist that is generated when paint spraying. There is a requirement for the measurement and display of `clearance times` for spray booths / rooms set by the HSE and the Motor Vehicle Repair (MVR) to meet the requirements of Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH).

Air monitoring equipments for material emissions and product testing

by Gradko International Ltd     based in Winchester, UNITED KINGDOM

A wide variety of products that are used in our indoor environments may emit harmful substances, raising health and safety concerns in homes, offices, public places and vehicles. There is increasing demand to reduce VOC emissions from indoor sources, backed by European legislation. REACH regulation is a European initiative for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical Substances. It was implemented to protect human health and the environment from harmful emissions of chemicals into the air we breathe. The REACH regulation places the responsibility on manufacturers and importers to test their products and provide safety information to the purchaser, end user or consumers.

Pulsar noise testing equipment for workplace sector

by Pulsar Instruments plc     based in Filey, UNITED KINGDOM

Workplace noise monitoring is an interesting subject that can appear complex, but it is always worth remembering what you are trying to achieve. This can be summarised as: ““Minimising or avoiding the risk of noise-induced hearing loss in the workplace to comply with local, noise-based, legislation”” Such legislation is usually based on a European Directive that is then modified to suit the needs of each particular country. For example, in the United Kingdom, the ‘The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005’ are based on the European Union Directive 2003/10/EC; usually called “The physical agents (noise)” directive and expanded upon by the Health & Safety Executive.

Pipeline Monitoring Systems for Health Monitoring

by Roctest - part of Nova Metrix LLC     based in Saint-Lambert, QUEBEC (CANADA)

Pipeline management presents challenges that are quite unique. Their long length, high value, high risk and often difficult access conditions require continuous monitoring as well as an optimization of maintenance interventions.
