Collectors / Booths

Wet Dust Collectors

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.

Welding Booths

WB series of welding booths are ideal for welding schools, technical colleges and limited footprint production environments.

Dust & Oil Collector

The D-Mister Oil Mist & VOC Collector better protects operators and machinery by capturing and filtering unbreathable particles.

Fume & Dust Collectors for Plasma & Laser Cutting

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:

  • Iron
  • Copper
  • Zinc
  • Nickel
  • Manganese
  • Aluminum
  • Tin
  • Beryllium
  • Cadmium
  • Lead
  • Titanium

  • 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:

  • Stainless steel - nickel and chromium
  • Mild steel - nitric oxide, NO2, carbon monoxide, iron oxide
  • Kevlar - inhalable dust
  • Rubber - 1,3-butadiene, respirable dust
  • Nimonics - nickel, chromium, cobalt
  • Polycarbonate - cresol, inhalable dust
  • Laser and Plasma Cutting Exposure Risks

    Aluminum: causes throat irritation, pneumoconiosis, bronchitis, impaired cognitive function, nervous system issues, pulmonary fibrosis, motor dysfunction, and peripheral neuropathy

    Beryllium: may cause skin disease, lung cancer, and chronic beryllium disease (rare) includes weakness, fatigue, weight loss, heart disease, and difficulty breathing

    Cadmium: affects blood pressure, prostate function, testosterone, reproductive system, kidneys, eyes, brain, causes bone and central nervous system damage, and pancreatic cancer

    Cobalt: can result in deafness, nerve and thyroid problems, thickening of the blood, tinnitus, and cardiomyopathy

    Copper: inhalation can cause eye, nose and throat irritation, metal fume fever, make hair or skin change color

    Cresol: can cause burning of the eyes, mouth, skin, and throat, abdominal pain and vomiting, heart damage, anemia, coma, liver and kidney damage, and death

    Hex chromium: or Hexavalent chrome can result in skin sores, nosebleeds, rashes, eye, nose, throat irritation, and cancer

    Iron oxide: can cause metal fume fever, pneumoconiosis with shortness of breath, cancer, reproductive issues, and discoloration of the eyes or iron staining

    Lead: may cause weakness, tingling in the hands or feet, memory loss, headaches, tiredness, constipation, abdominal pain, irritability, and loss of appetite

    Manganese: causes nervous system and neurological damage, Parkinson's disease with tremors, muscle stiffness, and makes it difficult to move the arms and legs

    Nickel: can cause heart and kidney problems, infertility, and cancer

    Tin: oxides can result in skin and eye irritation, respiratory irritation, gastrointestinal effects, and neurological problems

    Titanium: inhalation can cause tightness and pain in the chest, coughing, difficulty breathing, skin and eye irritation, and brain and nervous system damage

    Zinc: toxicity may include nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, headaches, loss of appetite, metal fume fever, cancer, can damage developing fetuses
