Grinding & Deburring Safety

Grinding and deburring applications create dangerous dusts that must be extracted in order to prevent health hazards. Working environments that use tools such as die grinders, angle grinders, and automated grinding machines will quickly become contaminated if toxic particles are not captured directly at the source.

It's imperative that hazardous particulate is eliminated before reaching the respiratory areas of employees. Grinding and deburring processes can create airborne metal, composite, rubber, or fiberglass dust that is especially dangerous to inhale.

The dust that is produced by grinding applications can result in a multitude of health effects, but mostly targets the lungs. Pneumoconiosis, also known as dusty lung, is when scar tissue builds up in the lining of the lungs and contributes to serious and lifelong lung issues.

Individuals working in environments without proper access to filtration and ventilation can be affected. It's important to note that the lungs are not the only organs at risk. It's possible that certain particles will dissolve into the bloodstream and then travel throughout the body affecting other vital organs like the liver, kidneys, and brain.

Are you at risk? Evaluate your safety needs:

  • Are you working with grinding, deburring or sanding materials?

  • Is your current dust collection equipment working properly?

  • Do you work in a confined space with little to no ventilation?

  • Are you working with potentially explosive combustible dust?

  • Are the workpieces cleaned or painted?

  • Do you need to wear a respirator?

  • Can you take advantage of any air streams?

The process that is being set in place to protect workers, along with the type of material being worked with and the length of exposure are key factors in determining the level of risk in a working environment.

Since grinding and deburring dusts have the ability to spread throughout a facility quickly, the most reliable solution is to remove it at the workstation preventing it from making its way to operators, machinery, and electronic equipment.
