Dust extraction

in the workplace

Most of the activities at a lumber processing company or carpentry shop involve working with wood. This includes sawing, sanding and sometimes treating wood. These processes produce dust that is extracted right at the machines with source extraction. The remaining dust, particularly the medium-sized and fine dust, cannot be captured by source extraction and therefore remains in the air within the shop, eventually settling to the floor. The way to solve this problem is dust extraction.

In a wood processing company or carpentry shop a lot of wood dust is produced that causes all sorts of problems in the workplace. This includes problems with machines, high cleaning costs as well as health problems. Dust can be inhaled by the workers. That is not healthy, because wood dust in the lungs can cause various allergic reactions and lead to health problems. It can irritate the skin, eyes and respiratory passages. Moreover, wood dust can cause cancer.

Which dust extraction system is most suitable for a wood processing company?

Wood dust is a big problem for many wood processing companies, not just for the quality of the work, the productivity and the costs but also for the health of the employees. It must therefore be removed from the air as thoroughly as possible with dust extraction in the workplace.

Specially for wood processing companies, Euromate has designed a dust extractor (HFE) which reduces wood dust by over 90%. That is an enormous difference and results in lower cleaning costs, less absence due to illness and better quality of the work. It is therefore a smart choice to install dust extraction in the workplace.

Plug-and-play units: a safe and effective solution

The extraction units from Euromate differ significantly from those of the competition because they are not connected to the central dust extraction. They are plug-and-play units that draw in the air, filter it and blow the cleaned air back into the workplace. Dust from a wood processing company or carpentry shop is a fire hazard if it enters the extraction system, which is why Euromate has chosen to capture it separately in bag filters. This is the safest and most effective solution for a dust problem in a wood processing company. The Euromate dust extractor is installed for free, stand-alone, plug-and-play and versatile.

Benefits of Euromate dust extraction

Improving the air quality in wood processing companies with dust extraction provides benefits, including:

  • Greater productivity (healthy air keeps employees sharp and fit)
  • Healthy supply of fresh air through effective extraction and filtration of the indoor air
  • No more nuisance from unpleasant odours that can be produced during wood processing
  • Saves energy: heated and cooled air are distributed evenly through the wood processing shop rather than being blown out in one location
  • Fresh, inviting wood processing shop for personnel and customers
  • Higher productivity: personnel are less fatigued at the end of the day
  • Lower cleaning costs
  • Lower absence due to illness
  • Good image: distinguishing factor within the wood processing branch
