Dust Extraction Systems for Grinding, lapping and Powder Handling

Any application that includes grinding and deburring will create dust that could require immediate extraction. Grinding dust from abrasive wheels is made up of extremely fine particles from the metal and the wheel. 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.

Grinding dust can be very dangerous to your health, especially beryllium and zinc. These materials require careful control of grinding dust. Metals such as zinc also give off toxic fumes when heated above their boiling point. The fumes produced from lead and mercury are very harmful as their effect is cumulative in the body and can cause irreversible damage. A resulting condition known as “dusty lung”  is possible. This is scar tissue that builds up in the lining of the lungs that contributes to serious, chronic lung problems.
