People who talk, cough, cough, breathe or, for example, panting during exercise emit particles, also known as aerosols. An aerosol is a colloidal mixture of all kinds of solid, liquid and gas particles, with a size of 0.12 to 200 micrometers. Aerosols are proven carriers of germs and these tiny droplets can float in a room for hours. Breathing it in can cause illnesses such as the flu or illness from the coronavirus. All the more important that these particles are filtered out of the air.

"We have achieved our aim of reducing air pollution by 70% and we’re delighted with the result!"
Discom is a specialist company that has expanded over more than forty years from a supplier of silencers to an all-round specialist in exhaust gas systems.
Exhaust gas system need to meet ever more stringent requirements, while noise-mitigating measures are being tightened. In addition, authorities are imposing new standards on emissions from polluting gases, yet in other cases, you want to reuse the heat from those exhaust gases.
Discom specialises in the integration of different techniques and technologies. It also supplies bespoke exhaust gas systems to the maritime sector, energy sector and industry in particular. The ideal system is always different, with many different aspects playing an important role.
Discom’s work is carried in three different production halls, two of which are connected to one another. The welding and grinding work generates a considerable amount of air pollution in the form of fine particulate. Inhalation is not only harmful to the company’s employees, and as the particulate settles, it causes problems with welding equipment and controlling the equipment. Vapours released during welding, cutting and grinding can also be extremely harmful to the health of employees.
In the winter in particular, when the doors were firmly closed, one of the company’s employees found it impossible to work in the production hall because of breathing difficulties.
The workplaces at Discom are spacious, the production halls have high ceilings and people do not need to work in close proximity to one another. Personal protective equipment is in use, but Discom nevertheless strives continuously to make conditions more comfortable, and took the decision to optimise air quality. One of the advisors at Euromate carried out air measurements before offering advice on what improvements could be made. In thefirst instance, the two linked production halls were equipped with four HF air cleaners. After installation, measures indicated that air pollution had been reduced by 60 to 70%. An additional two air cleaners were purchased for the third production hall, used for stainless steel processing.
Discom also operates a site in Romania, which has since also been equipped with HF air cleaners. The fumes that are suspended in the air have since disappeared, something that has been well received by employees.
For one employee who suers from COPD, installation of air cleaners was a very welcome improvement. Now that the air quality has been improved, he is able to work in all parts of the production hall without experiencing any anxiety-related complaints.
Euromate’s HFE unit is a very effective and efficient system for filtering dust particles. Even welding fumes and oily mist pose no problem for this system. The HFE system is built around an electrostatic filter and has an integrated fan.
