There are countless examples that can be used to pinpoint the dangers of combustible dust. Whether you are looking at the amount of deaths caused by the various forms of combustible dust or the amount of injuries, it is a grim view. For example, in 2010, three workers were killed in an explosion in West Virginia due to titanium dust. Since then, not much has changed in the form of regulation and prevention. The situation grew bad enough in 2014 that a call to action was made by The US Chemical Safety Board, urging OSHA to take action with new, sterner regulations.
Fortunately, these accidents are preventable with proper ventilation and precautions. According to OSHA, industries commonly affected by the build-up of combustible dust are numerous:
|Food (Candy, Sugar, Spice, Flour, Etc)||Grain|
|Tire & Rubber Manufacturing||Coal|
|Metal Processing||Recycling Operations|
|Fossil Fuel Power Generation (coal)||3D Welding (form of 3D Printing)|
These industries are most at risk for breathing problems, combustible dust explosions, and many other hazards that can be solved with proper ventilation. DualDraw offers an affordable solution with an array of dust collection products. We sought out to minimize such risks and put the health of employees on the forefront.
Steps can be taken to assure that your company, your employees, and countless families and lives are protected. DualDraw products cater to various dangers involved in many industries that may be overlooked or underestimated. Our entire focus is helping you and your employees breathe easier (and safer) in the line of duty.
Downdraft Tables and Booths
With a wide variety of downdraft tables to combat almost every type of combustible dust, we assure OSHA compliance and safety. Our tables protect against dry dust, wet dust, fumes, and other contaminants. Our booths are designed to contain airborne particles and to help eliminate cross-contamination that are frequent in some industries.
Walk-in Clean Air Stations
While Downdraft Tables and Booths serve their purpose well, there are some situations where they just don’t fit. Our Walk-in Clean Air Stations fill that void and offer proper ventilation to awkward or large applications. These units are self contained and require no outdoor exhausting. There are options for self-cleaning and wet filtration as well.
Wet Dust Collectors
Wet Dust can be as hazardous as dry dust and should be handled accordingly. We offer wet downdraft tables, wet walk-in clean air stations and wet collectors and scrubbers to help combat the problem. Wet downdraft tables capture and distinguish dust particles like aluminum, magnesium, and titanium. We also offer Self-Cleaning Cartridge Collectors and custom products. This assures that we have a ventilation system to fit any situation and can adjust our products accordingly.
Keeping your employees safe, and providing them with fresh air, is a top priority. Being OSHA compliant and following the rules and regulations for your industry follows at a close second. We pride in giving companies the tools to do so affordably, ensuring the safety and well-being of countless workers and businesses.
