We offer a wide range of downdraft tables to solve even the most challenging industrial air quality issues. From built-in ventilation and hands-free capture at the source, to a variety of sizes to work with almost any work application, our tables provide practical solutions and comply with all regulatory guidelines.
The key to keeping combustible dust at bay is to capture it at the source, before it has an opportunity to cause damage. Wet downdraft tables capture and contain combustible dust, using water as the medium to bond to particles and render them harmless. Wet downdraft tables are valuable if you perform high risk applications.
Industrial grinding and deburring applications require immediate filtration to ensure dust and particulates are removed before reaching the breathing area of surrounding workers. Whether you are working with a die grinder, an angle grinder or an automated grinding machine, particles and dust will contaminate your work environment if they are not captured and filtered directly at the source. Based on the type of grinding or deburring application, airborne metals, rubber and fiberglass dust, and composites can suspend into clean air creating extreme health hazards if inhaled.
Grinding dust can spread through a facility very quickly and is best managed by being eliminated at the workstation so that it doesn't have the opportunity to reach workers, equipment, and machinery. If you are working with a grinding application that produces explosive or combustible dust without properly capturing contaminants at the source the risk for damage is even higher. FumeXtractors offers a wide range of equipment including dry and wet downdraft tables to capture dust as its being produced. Our dust filtration products meet required regulatory guidelines and our team of experts is always prepared to provide information to assist you in determining which system best meets the demands of your application.
Is your workplace at risk? Grinding and deburring dust can cause a range of health effects when not properly filtered including pneumoconiosis or “dusty lung”, eye, ear, nose, throat and skin irritation, nervous system damage, and chronic lung problems. Certain dust particles can potentially dissolve into a person's bloodstream and travel throughout their body damaging different organs such as the liver, kidneys, and brain. The safest way to ensure protection for staff is by implementing a system that captures and filters grinding and deburring dust at the source. The degree of severity can be determined by the type of material being worked with, effectiveness of protection, and the length of exposure.
Most sanding and grinding applications should implement capture-at-source ventilation, and only when unrealistic should ambient air cleaning solutions be considered.
