Plastics & Composites Extraction
Plastics are one of the most common, manmade substances on earth. It uses extensively in our daily lives. Producing these multitudes of plastic components can have long last health effects on the workers and operators dealing with plastic dust, plastic powder and fumes on a daily basis.
As an example, when polyvinyl chloride (PVC) is burned it produces one of the most dangerous synthetic chemicals on earth, with testing demonstrating the devastating impact that exposure can have on the body, with links to cancer and immune deficiencies.
When designing extraction solutions for plastics and composites, it is important to understand what kind of plastic you are dealing with, the process you’ll be using and the contaminates this will produce. Once this is understood, you can determine the best route for containment, management and extraction that will ensure you can produce quality products and preserve the health of your employees.
