During grinding and deburring processes, hazardous dust and particulate are produced. Facilities that use die grinders, angle grinders, and automated grinding machines can become contaminated quickly if contaminants are not captured at-the-source.
Grinding and deburring applications can create airborne metal, composite, rubber, or fiberglass dust that is especially dangerous to inhale. This dust 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.
It's important to note that the lungs are not the only organs at risk. It's possible that certain particulates will dissolve into the bloodstream and travel through the body affecting other vital organs like the liver, kidneys, and brain.
Because grinding and deburring dust 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.
