Metalworking fluids (MWFs) are used to reduce heat and friction, as well as, improve product quality in machining or grinding operations. Using MWF’s in the machining process creates hazardous airborne mists. Machining and grinding of metals also can cause airborne dust which must be removed from the atmosphere. These fluids and dust can be toxic and prolonged exposure can be hazardous to your employees’ health. IVEC® Systems can create a ventilation and mist collection system solution that is highly effective in controlling exposures to caustic fluids and airborne dust, while at the same time, reduce operating costs.
Industry Applications of IVEC® Dust Collection and Mist Filtration Controllers
Today’s industrial companies face a number of air ventilation challenges that may include improving air quality and minimizing exposure to production related emissions within the work environment as well as lowering energy cost caused by inefficient use of equipment.
The welding process creates noxious and dangerous fumes which can adversely affect an employees’ health, increase employee absentee rates and ultimately affect productivity. Capturing these pollutants using local exhaust ventilation (LEV) or an ambient capture air cleaning system will keep your welders comfortable, healthy and more productive.
Machining lumber and other wood products creates substantial amounts of airborne dust particles. These particles infiltrate every square inch of the shop area. The fine dust particles are hazardous to employee health and can cause many safety concerns. Larger un-removed particles can also cause damage to finished goods during the production process. Installing an efficient intelligent controlled ventilation system can alleviate these issues and save money on your energy bill.
Print and Bindery Operations
IVEC® provides intelligent process control systems for companies that require multi-stage filtration. Print and bindery operations require powerful suction to remove and process large trim waste materials followed by an airborne filtration process to return temperature controlled air to the plant. Look to IVEC® for a well-monitored and energy efficient solution.
Vehicle Exhaust Ventilation Systems
Working near exhaust fumes exposes employees to poisonous carbon monoxide (CO) gas. Overexposure to this odorless and colorless gas can cause injury and even death. Troubling as it may seem, even mild exposure can cause headaches, dizziness, nausea and fatigue. The most efficient way to combat exposure is to capture the exhaust fumes at the source and eliminate harmful pollutants. IVEC®offers systems that can handle the smallest of shops or warehousing complexes that involve millions of cubic feet.
Dust control for the food packaging and processing industry is vital for providing safe, high quality products. Dust must be prevented from spreading in process areas and causing cross-contamination of other products. It is also essential to prevent accumulation of dust which may provide a substrate for growth of micro-organisms or be a food source for rodent and insect infestations. Additionally, an efficient dust collection system utilizing one of IVEC®'s state-of-the-art controllers helps to protect the machine operators from inhaling fine particles and do it efficiently.
The diverse operations within the textile industry include fiber synthesis, weaving, manufacturing, dyeing and finishing. These operations present numerous health and safety issues which may include chemical exposure from material dyeing or exposure to airborne cotton fibers and other organic dusts. IVEC® Systems can efficiently be used for enhancing workshop ventilation, removing dust particles, exhausting emissions, reducing temperature and improving air quality.
