Dust Collection 101

While all industrial processes produce some amount of waste, some types of debris are more difficult to remove than others. Blasting and sanding, for instance, produce a fine dust that can settle over large surfaces. When disturbed, these contaminants disperse into the air and can be inhaled, which can be harmful to the lungs. These types of debris also tend to create slipping hazards as they settle onto the floor and are difficult to sweep away. Dust collection systems help gather such substances before they become safety concerns, playing a critical role in maintaining a clean and safe workplace.

Fume Extraction/Exhaust Hose

Posted by Flexaust on Nov 11, 2020 12:00:00 PM

A fume extraction hose is an important piece of equipment for many industrial applications, especially those that filter high levels of fumes and other potentially harmful emissions. Its main function is to remove harmful chemicals and fumes from the equipment to the air filtration system. The hose is a secondary piece to the larger main filtration system, which safely disperses the fumes. If the exhaust hose is not connected to a larger main filtration system, it cannot transport the fumes to a ventilated area for safe dispersal. Our exhaust hoses are environmentally resistant, durable, flexible, and useful in a range of applications that make the air safer and breathable.
