Paint manufacturing consists of a series of processes that produce synthetic paints, lacquers, and enamels by mixing solvents, pigments, and organic substances. During the paint preparation process, pigment dust - a fine organic dust, and other airborne contaminants become transmitted into the airstream. Exposure to air contaminants such as pigment dust can result in eye and skin irritation, nervous system damage, and other serious health issues.
Paint manufacturing is high-risk because it involves the handling of hazardous, flammable, and explosive materials. Dust collection systems are highly effective for controlling the fine organic dust at risk of explosion in paint manufacturing plants.
Dust collection systems utilize ductwork and explosion protection equipment to safely draw pigment dust and other air contaminants away from the source and through specialized filter technology to establish safe and comfortable work environments.
When it comes to manufacturing paint, dust collection systems must include deflagration protection to prevent explosive dust risks. Ducting for paint manufacturing can be equipped with dampers, explosion isolation valves, or high-speed abort gates to minimize deflagration risks.
Nordfab® Quick-Fit® Ducting can be customized to accommodate any size plant or facility! Quick-Fit ducting is adaptable to existing ductwork and versatile enough for many applications where dust collection and fine particulate transfer are required.
