Carbon dust is a super-fine black powder that emits during metalworking applications such as machining metal parts. Carbon dust is easily introduced into the airstream through handling and conveying - it's also challenging to control because of how fine it is.
Exposure to carbon dust mainly happens in the workplace when employees inhale contaminated air. Breathing carbon dust and particles can irritate the throat, eyes, and nose. Long-term exposure to high volumes of carbon dust can increase cancer risks.
Industrial dust collectors utilize ducting systems to capture and control carbon dust directly at the source. When air contaminated with carbon dust enters a ductwork system, it's moved into the industrial dust collector, where it's cleaned and returned back into the workplace or exhausted away from the facility.
Nordfab® Ducting for carbon dust is designed to withstand high air pressure, minimize air resistance and reduce static pressure loss - making it ideal for metalworking and machining applications!
Utilizing Nordfab Quick-Fit® Ducting eliminates contaminants and helps reduce the number of workplace accidents and production loss! We can fabricate all the inlet and outlet transitions to perfectly match the dust collector.
