The WX-Series Wet Dust Collector allows for the safe capture and collection of combustible dust. WX Series Wet Dust Collectors are NFPA 484 compliant.
WB series of welding booths are ideal for welding schools, technical colleges and limited footprint production environments.
The D-Mister Oil Mist & VOC Collector better protects operators and machinery by capturing and filtering unbreathable particles.
Plasma and laser cutting are techniques used within a range of industrial applications to support the completion of a variety of projects. Plasma cutting, one of the most popular methods for cutting steel and other metals, is a thermal cutting process that uses a jet of high speed ionized gas which creates an electrical arc and administers electricity from the plasma cutter to the material. The material being worked with is then heated and melted and the molten metal is blown away.
Laser cutting utilizes computer-aided designs to ensure precision throughout the cutting process. A focus laser beam is directed at the material to be cut and then vaporizes or melts it to create a finished surface or edge. Fiber lasers, CO2 lasers and Nd and Nd-YAG lasers have become common since CO2 lasers were first introduced, however, CO2 lasers have remained the most popular because of the versatility they're able to provide. They can cut and engrave titanium, wood, steel, stainless, plastic, and more.
Laser and plasma cutting are both effective ways to manage industrial cutting tasks, nonetheless, they also produce and emit sparks and fumes that may contain different metals and compounds which are dangerous to employees, equipment, and machinery in the surrounding environment. Metal fumes and dust can result in lung damage, metal fume fever, a higher risk of pneumonia and bronchitis, fibrotic lung disease, COPD, kidney damage, cardiovascular disease, strokes, heart attacks, and coronary artery disease among more. To prevent serious health risks and protect the quality of your facility's equipment, these fumes and sparks must be captured and filtered directly at the source by utilizing WX Series collectors, WT Series tables, WB Series welding booths, Galvanized Environmental Booths and EnviroBooth Modules or Dust and Oil Mist Collectors.
The plasma cutting process produces and transmits a spectrum of various toxic smoke that can cause severe health issues when not properly captured and filtered. Some of the materials found in plasma smoke include:
During the laser cutting or engraving process, beams are hazardous as they produce harmful emissions such as chemical vapors, aerosols or smoke depending on the material they're interacting with. Some of the materials & the emissions they create while being lasered cut or engraved are:
