Any application that includes grinding and deburring will create dust that could require immediate extraction. Whether it is an angle grinder, die grinder or an automated grinding machine, dust and particles will pollute your workplace unless they are properly extracted. The key is to remove dust and particulate before it reaches the breathing zone of nearby workers. Depending on the nature of the work application, grinding and deburring can create airborne metal, composite, rubber or fibre glass dust that is particularly dangerous to inhale.
Dust produced by workplace grinding applications produces a range of health effects, mostly centred in the lungs. A condition known as “dusty lung” affects many workers that don’t have access to proper filtration and ventilation. The result is scar tissue build up in the lining of the lungs that contributes to serious, chronic lung problems.
