The Importance of Industrial Dust Control

The Importance of Industrial Dust Control
 

Many companies may underestimate the importance of industrial dust control as it pertains to their employee’s health. Some employers may assume that dust is harmless but it truly is not. Industrial dust can cause allergies in employees that will be both unpleasant and likely to need time out of work. Long-term exposure to industrial dust can cause cancer, lung scarring and other serious illnesses. The longer an employee is exposed to dust the more serious their health issues will get. Not only this, but having dust within an environment can also contribute to combustion or cause a dust explosion.

There are many methods for industrial dust control: wet scrubbers, inertial separators, fabric filters, electrostatic precipitators and unit collectors such as an industrial vacuum. Which type of industrial dust control is right for a situation will depend on the type of equipment and the type of dust. A professional dust control company can consult with a business to determine where their potential hazards are and what the best methods will be to manage their dust problem.
