Machining and other metalworking applications produce and transmit dust and shavings that settle on floors and fixtures raising the risk of employee injuries and/or equipment malfunction, if uncontrolled.
When the dust from metalworking projects enters the airstream, it accumulates and billows in the air. The particulate that makes up metalworking dust is small and easily respirable - exposure to metal dust can result in short and/or long-term health issues.
Installing dust collection systems is the most effective way to control metal dust and shavings. Dust collectors rely on ductwork systems to capture metal shavings, dust, and other contaminants at the source. The source capture method draws contaminated air through a ducting system and into a dust collector where it is filtered and cleaned. Source capture is the most effective way to prevent metalworking dust, fumes, smoke, etc., from entering breathing zones or settling on surfaces.
Source capture is the most effective way to prevent metalworking dust, fumes, smoke, etc., from entering breathing zones. Nordfab® metal dust ducting installs directly on machinery to provide immediate dust collection and reduces the number of workplace accidents and production issues.
Nordfab metal dust ducting is quickly replacing spiral duct as the new standard for commercial and industrial applications. Nordfab features laser-welded, clamp-together duct that can be reused and readapted into existing ductwork systems.
Nordfab ducting can also be outfitted with high-speed abort gates for applications where combustible metalworking dust is present. Get in touch with our experts to learn more!
