The perfect solution for cleaner air

Industrial processes can produce hazardous dust and fume. Any operation where a material is physically altered in any way has the potential to produce toxic materials.

Many of these types of dust and fumes are harmful to workers’ health if inhaled. They can also cause damage and problems to processes in the workplace, as well as the machines being used during operation.

Common hazards include:

  • Solder and weld fume
  • Laser fume from plastics, metals, wood, etc.
  • Respirable dust
  • Solvents

and more.

Health and safety legislation

Local and international health and safety legislation states that it is the employer’s responsibility to protect the health and safety of their employees. Failure to do so can result in expensive legal action, high fines and poor employee health.

Benefits of Purex systems

Purex is renowned for the quality and reliability of its technology. Their fume extraction systems have many benefits, including:

  • Protecting employee health and safety
  • Ensuring compliance with health and safety regulations
  • Increasing production speeds
  • Reducing complaints by workers due to odours, dust and fumes
  • Reducing the cost and time of cleaning equipment
  • Reducing product contamination
  • Reducing harm to the environment

Why use a recirculating fume extractor?

When it comes to extraction systems, there are two types available:

  • External  
    Contaminated air gets pumped into the environment
  • Internal
    Filtration of air takes place inside the extraction or LEV (local exhaust ventilation) system.

LEV systems, such as a Purex, are seen as the better option.

External venting systems pump fumes and dust to the outside, polluting and harming the environment. The alternative is a Purex Recirculating Filter System which captures hazardous dust and fumes in filters and returns purified air to the workplace.
