Our line of welding booths are designed for easy installation, operation and are built for years of dependable service.
The EnviroBooth offers a simple, customizable, and turnkey solution to handle dust & fume filtration for larger work pieces
Combustible dust can be defined as a metallic or non-metallic material that is composed of distinct particles, regardless of shape, size or chemical composition which present a fire or explosion hazard when met with air or other oxidizing mediums over a variety of concentrations. Dust can be produced through the transportation, processing, grounding, shaping, polishing or handling of materials or through cutting, abrasive blasting, sifting or mixing applications. Any work environment that generates dust is potentially at risk of deflagration. It is important to note that although certain materials may not be considered combustible, they may have the ability to burn or explode if particles are the correct size and concentration. To find out whether or not industrial dust is combustible, you must evaluate its KST value which measures how explosive dust is when compared to other types. Any reading higher than a zero proves the risk for explosion.
If there are any processes or materials that create dust in your workspace, they should be analyzed to determine whether there is a risk of combustion. Dust can accumulate on the surfaces of equipment and machinery, ducts, roofs, dust collectors, suspended ceilings, rafters, cracks, and more. Work applications that have the capacity to develop combustible dust provide some of the most dangerous working conditions if the dust is not contained and removed properly.
High Risk Combustible Dust Industries & Applications
Welding is a common industrial application, and although it is efficient and practical for joining a variety of metals, the by-products can cause serious problems in your work environment. Welding creates gases and fumes that have no business in the human respiratory system, and you must take measures to capture and filter fumes at the source to protect your students and workers. Our booths are also designed to filter airborne dust from grinding welds smooth.
The only way to guarantee your workers’ protection is to filter and ventilate welding fumes at the source. We have a range of Our welding booths, as well as, Galvanized Environmental Dust Booths and EnviroBooth Modules that comply with all regulatory guidelines and are ideal for removing the airborne by-products of welding at the source. We also have mobile welding trailers for training purposes. If your facility processes any of the following materials in a powdered form you are at risk for a combustible dust explosion:
