Advantages of Industrial Ventilation and Dust Control
Have you wondered if a defective ventilation or dust control system is costing your company? Below, discover the risks and advantages of these systems.
Risks of a Defective Ventilation System
When it comes to the importance of air quality in your company, we like to compare your plant to a patient.
Some departments do badly. The presence of contaminants in the air brings symptoms that directly threaten workers. These symptoms in turn bring lower productivity, complaints, grievances, a raising of your electrical classification and perhaps orders from a inspector.
A plant that has an ineffective or non-existent ventilation system is exactly like that patient. Your teams cannot be productive if the air they work in is loaded with dangerous vapours, gas, dust or heat.
Beyond the health risks, other dangers may lurk for your employees such fires and explosions.
4 Advantages of Industrial Ventilation and Dust Control
What are the advantages of installing industrial ventilation and dust control systems? Here is our four-point summary:
The most visible advantage is an evident improvement in air quality, thanks to the extraction of contaminated air or heat and the inlet of fresh air. A healthy work environment encourages efficiency!
By controlling vapours or dust clouds around your workers, you reduce the risks of fire and explosion considerably. The safety of your employees is therefore improved, which is a considerable advantage!
The laws and regulations on health and the environment are becoming increasingly strict. They require ventilation and dust control systems as well as high performance air cleaning systems. Management that complies with these regulations enjoys a well-deserved peace of mind.
The excessive presence of dust in certain processes degrades performance. Reducing dust is therefore essential to a satisfactory process performance.
