Dust extraction in a furniture workshop
Most of the activities at a furniture manufacturing company involve working with wood. It is sawn, sanded and treated. This produces lots of dust, some of which can be captured through source extraction at the woodworking machine. Unfortunately this existing central dust extraction is insufficient, because only it only removes the larger dust particles. The medium-sized and fine dust particles are left floating in the air, eventually settling onto the machines or the floor. So in a furniture manufacturing company a lot of wood dust is produced that causes all sorts of problems in the hall. These include machine malfunctions, high cleaning costs as well as health problems. Dust can be inhaled by the furniture makers. That is unhealthy, because wood dust in the lungs can lead to all sorts of allergic reactions and health problems.
