All sorts of textiles and substances are used for the work within the textile industry. During these processes lots of dust particles are produced, which remain suspended in the air within the hall, settle out (high cleaning costs) and, above all, can cause various health problems. To prevent this an air cleaning and dust extraction system should be installed. Particularly raw materials such as raw wool, synthetic fibres and raw cotton cloth can cause health problems. Above all, it is the small dust particles in these raw materials that cause a problem, because they can be inhaled deeply within the lungs. These dust particles can also be endotoxins, which means they are poisonous.
Health complains in the textile industry mainly include: breathing difficulties, coughing (with mucus) and a feeling of pressure on the chest, increased chance of developing a chronic infection of the mucus membranes in the respiratory passages (bronchitis), constriction of the respiratory passages (byssinosis – ‘brown lung disease’), pulmonary emphysema and premature death, mainly due to heart and circulatory diseases.
Textile dust is a big problem for the textile industry due to its impact on employee health as well as the cleaning costs. Dust extraction for the textile industry is needed to solve the problems at the source.
Specially for the textile industry, Euromate has designed the HFE which reduces dust by over 90%. When there is less dust in the air within the hall, this results in lower cleaning costs and less absence due to illness. It is therefore important to install dust extraction in the production hall. The Euromate HFE is an extraction unit with powerful fan that is installed stand-alone, rather than being connected to a central ventilation system. They are plug-and-play units that draw in the polluted air, filter it and blow the cleaned air back into the hall. The Euromate dust extractor is also installed for free, plug-and-play and versatile (so it can also be used for other purposes).
Improvement of the air quality in the textile industry through dust extraction provides benefits, such as:
