Clean Air Enhances Health and Efficiency
Ecological sensitive, clean and quiet industrial workplaces promote the long-term health and safety of your workforce. Acculift designs air purification and dust collection systems for optimal air movement, lower maintenance costs, and conservation of energy resources. We can help you reduce airborne contaminants, such as manganese, to meet provincial and federal regulatory approvals.
In a workplace, such as welding shops or manufacturing facilities, ventilation is used to control exposure to airborne contaminants such as welding fumes (manganese and hexavalent chromium are found in weld smoke), dusts, oil mists (or oil mist collection), and vapours, in order to provide a healthy and safe working environment. All ventilation systems follow the same basic principles but each system is designed specifically to match to the type of work, the workstation, and the rate of contaminant released at that workstation. Acculift’s clean air systems are designed to move a specific amount of air at a specific speed (velocity), which results in the removal (exhaust) of undesirable contaminants.
There are four primary benefits of increased ventilation in the workplace:
- Provide a continuous supply of fresh outside air,
- Maintain temperature and humidity at comfortable levels,
- Reduce potential fire or explosion hazards,
- Remove or dilute airborne contaminants.
Clean air systems are considered an engineering control to remove or control contaminants released in indoor work environments. It is one of the preferred ways to control employee exposure to air contaminants and to increase worker safety.
