In certain industries – chemical processing, pharmaceutical, food and agriculture, metal and woodworking – the air you and your employees breathe in on a daily basis can be compromised. Dirt, dust, debris, gasses, and chemicals can be floating around in the air, causing issues for your employees, as well as your equipment. Dust collectors remove these contaminants from the air, providing your factory with cleaner air, which can provide numerous benefits.
Improves Health and Safety
When the air is filled with dirt, dust, debris, chemicals or gasses, the lungs of anyone who breathes this air in is put in jeopardy. Not only that, but these contaminants can collect on or near equipment, posing a significant fire hazard. With a dust collector, these contaminants are removed from the air, cleaning the air and improving the safety of everyone inside.
When dirt, dust and debris collects on equipment, it can make its way inside, interfering with the mechanics. This can lead to slower machines and broken equipment. Compromised machinery constantly needs attention and repairs. Dust collectors remove this risk, allowing your machinery to work at optimal performance.
Better Product Quality
With all kinds of contaminants in the air, they can collect on products throughout the manufacturing process. Chemicals and gasses can seep into your products, giving them an off odor. These factors can negatively impact the quality of the finished product. Dust collectors, however, significantly reduce the contaminants in the air, keeping them away from finished products, improving their quality and increasing customer satisfaction.
Meeting Compliance Regulations
There are numerous laws and regulations in place for workplace safety. Some of these regulations are related to the environment, and the quality of the air. Poor air quality can cost you heavily, not just in fines, but by harming your employees and creating potential hazards that can destroy your factory. Dust collectors help you to comply with governmental regulations, with the added bonus of keeping everyone (and everything) inside the building safe.
Let’s face it, when the air quality is bad, employees suffer. As a result, they become unhappy, and start to look for employment elsewhere. Unsatisfied employees don’t work well, and high employee turnover can cost you big. Keeping the air clean and healthy with a dust collector improves the morale of your employees, allowing you to retain great, happy people in the workplace.
Dust collectors help to keep the air in your surrounding environment clean and safe for everyone inside. If you are in need of a dust collector for your factory or business, contact ACT Dust Collectors today to get started.
