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.?

Trapped Key Interlocks for Ports

by Kirk Key Interlock Company     based in North Canton, OHIO (USA)

Interlocks can be used in many process or procedural systems within Ports involving the transmission of electricity, including crane movement, Ship to Shore power, and local substations or backup generators. KIRK type DM locks with chain that are attached to medium voltage connectors located in quayside vaults ensure proper procedure is followed when connecting shore to ship power. These MV connectors feed the ships with crucial electricity, enabling diesel on-ship generators to be switched off whilst in dock, also known as cold ironing. The upstream breakers feeding the vaults are equipped with KIRK® type F locks, which are keyed to correspond to the interlocks on the vault cover or connectors. This ensures power is disconnected before the connectors can be engaged or disengaged, prohibiting operations under load.

Microbial testing in cooling water system industry

by LuminUltra Technologies Ltd.     based in Fredericton, NEW BRUNSWICK (CANADA)

Superior reliability for superior control! Biocide treatments are essential to control microbiological growth in cooling systems. If not properly managed, the warm environments of cooling systems are ideal for the growth of microorganisms. As microorganism communities grow in cooling systems, they can attach to pipe walls and form biofilms. These biofilms pose serious risks, from human health risks like Legionnaire`s disease to reduced operating efficiency and eventually to equipment failure via microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC).

Smoke generator device for hot fire training

by Concept Smoke Systems     based in Maidenhead, UNITED KINGDOM

Concept`s ViCount smoke generators are installed throughout the world in quality hot fire training centres - providing the most realistic artificial smoke effect possible. They are also used to add smoke during carbonaceous burns. The majority of fire training centres and schools use gas to replicate the appearance and heat of a real fire but one thing gas doesn`t produce is smoke! The ViCount range of oil-based smoke generators from Concept produces a smoke with a temperature resistance up to 200C, so realism can be added to Hot Fire simulators effectively and safely.

Recycling equipments for shredding & reducing medical waste

by Granutech-Saturn Systems     based in Grand Prairie, TEXAS (USA)

Measurement solution for hospital workplace exposure monitoring

by Protea Limited     based in Middlewich, UNITED KINGDOM

In taking a responsible stance on the exposure of workers to any potentially hazardous gases, there is a need for workplaces using anaesthetic gases, such as hospital operating rooms or research laboratories, to control the level of waste anaesthetic gas in the ambient air.

Noise monitoring solutions for sound power

by Brüel & Kjær Sound & Vibration Measurement A/S     based in Nærum, DENMARK

Noise emission values are increasingly becoming marketable items for machines, equipment and appliances - low noise emissions directly relate to lower noise exposure for product users and bystanders. Retail customers, both private and corporate, appreciate this relationship and are, therefore, more aware of noise emission declarations on goods when deciding their purchases.

HCl Monitoring in Air

by Unisearch Associates Inc.     based in Concord, ONTARIO (CANADA)

Hydrogen chloride (HCl) is a colorless, sometimes slightly yellow, gas. It is an undesired environmental component that may be damaging to workers and the surroundings. Exposure limits have thus been established by industries to make sure that the workers operate in a safe environment. HCl monitoring is especially required for incinerators, coal-fired power plants, aluminum recycling and cement plants. Unisearch offers a reliable and easy-to-use HCl analyzer – the TDLAS-based LasIR system. Studies have shown that TDLAS equipment provides data that is more accurate than conventional gas monitoring equipment. When calibrated for HCl monitoring, TDLAS is able to detect this gas among other gases present in the area and provide continuous updates with regards to the changes in its concentration.
