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.

Odours and gases can be bad for your health. Various health authorities are therefore paying more and more attention to odours and gases in the (work) environment. It is a well-known problem with catering companies, physiotherapists, dentists, nursing homes, nurseries, hairdressers, textile processors and also in certain industrial processes, for example where welding is carried out. The precise composition of the welding fumes depends on the substrate, filler material and welding technique.

The maintenance of vehicles and machines often involves the use of oil and grease. As a result, companies in machine maintenance and car garages often have to contend with polluted air due to oil mist. A lot of fat and oil is also used in the preparation of food. This dissolves, evaporates and spreads through the air with a nasty impact on the body as a result. As a result, staff in restaurants, cafes, hotels, snack bars or catering are often the victims of unhealthy air. Euromate offers the solution to this problem with the oil extractor.

"THE AIR FILTERS, TOGETHER WITH THE MEASUREMENT SYSTEM, ARE THE IDEAL SOLUTION FOR MAINTAINING AIR QUALITY."
DS Smith is one of the world’s leading producers of (corrugated) board packaging, an innovative paper manufacturer and Europe’s largest board and paper recycler. DS Smith has clients from each size in every conceivable industry. The head office is situated in London. The company is present in 34 countries and has about 30,000 employees.
Tilburg is home to the industrial heavy-duty packaging division. This involves corrugated packaging of extremely heavy quality in large formats, which generally holds heavy weights. The octabins, which are used for transporting granulate, next to that packaging is made for high-end bicycles and various applications in the automotive industry.
About 220 people work at the Tilburg site and the total business area is over 55 000m2. In October 2023, the heavy-duty division will be 60 years old. Safety and staff welfare are high priorities at DS Smith. For example, at the time of the reference visit in Tilburg, there have already been 2909 days without an industrial accident requiring absenteeism.
Pieter Stoevelaar is Cluster Director Heavy Duty at DS Smith Tilburg. He has been with the company for 23 years and active in his current position since 2015. In the production hall where rolls of paper are assembled into cardboard sheets, steam and temperature are needed to activate the glue. This makes it really warm. Being an old building, moisture has to be dealt with. This causes spores/moulds that spread through the air. However, they are not dangerous to humans. Due to these circumstances extra measurement are necessary to keep an ideal indoor climate.
As staff welfare is a top priority at DS Smith, Tilburg, the air quality was monitored closely already. After new measurements and research performed by a specialised consulting agency in Denmark, the advise came end of 2022 to take additional measures. Pieter Stoevelaar tells: “Air filters were recommended by the consulting agency concerned, while continuously measuring air quality to minimise and control spores. In consultation with the specialised occupational health and safety expert, we then drew up a risk inventory (RI&E).”
The Dust Free Industrial 8500 was already in use in one of the other halls at DS Smith Tilburg. In this hall too much dust is the issue, this existed during processing corrugated carton. Pieter Stoevelaar: Having contacted the consultant of Euromate and the on-site survey performed, Euromate also had a good solution to the big hall where the carton is glued. Next to filtering the indoor air, the quality of the air is measured continuously using sensors.
He continues: “Contact with Euromate revealed that deploying a series of modular Dust Free Industrial 8500 units with a special filter package would be a good solution to maintain indoor air levels. A measuring system (Air Monitor System 5) was also recommended, to continuously monitor the indoor air quality. The sensors measure PM10, PM 2.5, PM1, the temperature and the humidity. The monthly measurement reports are sent together with the air samples to our consultancy agency in Denmark. In this way, the air quality is periodically examined to see if it remains within the appropriate range.
Pieter Stoevelaar ends: “The air filters and the measurement sensors have been installed about three months ago. Our experiences with Euromate are fine, the response time is quick. The complete installation lasted shorted than we had expected. To us it was important that factory could continue working during the installation. The interaction in this was good, the installation engineers were flexible and well-matched, so I had no reason not to do it.”
The Euromate Dust Free Industrial (DFI) 8500 has been developed specifically for production and industrial environment. This unique complete solution not only guarantees a dust-free working environment, but also ease of use and operation for many years to come. The Air Monitor System (AMS) 5 maps air quality in industrial environments. With the Eco+ module, the AMS 5 controls the DFI 8500 based on the measured dust concentration.
