The prevention of risks related to exposure to chemical products has become a reality in the industry, particularly in the plastics manufacturing industry.
NEU smoke extractors are designed to work in many situations involving unhealthy plastic fumes, chemical fumes or solvent fumes. They easily integrate into any environment.
Efficiency for a plastic manufacturer means more than just maintaining smooth operations. Air quality and dust mitigation are concerns that can often be overlooked in relation to plant efficiency, but they are all closely related. Dust and fumes cause problems like employee sick days and electro-static discharge, which cost manufacturers money. A customized dust-collection system, then, can mean the difference between competitive efficiency and lost revenue.
Plastic is comprised of chemicals, so machining, processing and forming plastic can produce fumes and dust that create serious air-quality concerns. The release of toxins, along with cross-contamination in source materials, make dust and fume collection a huge concern for plastics manufacturers.
A customized dust-collection solution can capture the toxins released when processing plastics even before facility workers are exposed to them.
Administrations issue permissible exposure limits for certain substances found in plastics.
But clean air is a good idea regardless of what facility workers are in because of the increased efficiency it delivers. Reduced sick leave and an increase in personal energy are just two effects clean air has on employees. Add to these equipment cleanliness, and the efficiencies across any plastics manufacturing company with clean air start to become significant.
Chemical substances which are released into the air on plastic product production lines or in the field of rubber processing can cause serious occupational illnesses.
Dust clouds contain fine respirable dust particles which penetrate operators' respiratory systems, for example in rubber manufacturing plants where zinc stearate is used, or in plastics processing companies where fumes are emitted.
Fumes treatment is an inseparable part of the process on production lines in plastics manufacturing.
For this reason, Delta NEU offers its air processing expertise to process fumes on preparation, weighing, brushing, stearate and talc workstations, on mixers and shredders and in heat chambers, autoclaves, presses and furnaces.
When fumes are the only source of pollution, NEU's solution involves installing a simple smoke removal unit connected to a collection system built into a workstation.
Smoke extraction systems are industrial ventilation systems which tend to be easy to install. When dust extraction is also required, more elaborate filtration systems are necessary to purify the air before it is released into the outside environment in line with applicable standards.
In both cases, the success of the installation depends on the supplier's ability to design and implement efficient collection systems in accordance with INRS' basic rules.
