Solutions for Dust Containment

Dust Containment

PROBLEM: As a result of sanding and grinding, steel dust was spread throughout the plant at this steel door manufacturer.

SOLUTION: All sanding operations are contained within a Dust Containment Booth. The booth has acoustic side panels to reduce noise and lighting outside  of the plexiglass enclosure. Notice the space between the left and center dust collectors. As the doors are sanded they move between the two dust collectors to remove any dust remaining on the surface of the door. The doors travel directly to the assembly line. The new system has reduced exposure to below OSHA standards. Additionally, the factory outside of the containment room is cleaner.
