Dust accumulation and the failure to control it can be a profound hazard in many industries including food manufacture, wood processing, rubber processing, mining, and pharma to name a few. Failure to manage/mitigate the dust can have catastrophic results posing a risk to life and limb and product quality. Many corporations are lulled into a sense of complacency with regard to the issue and fail to act before an event.

E6Solutions for dust management, control and mitigation
There are few, if any, manufacturing processes that don’t produce dust. While some may consider these minute particles of little consequence, the failure to monitor, collect and control them can have grave consequences. Here’s the problem with dust – it could be causing health issues, creating a fire or explosion hazard or even degrading your product. Dust deserves your respect and settling for a modest clean up can lull you into complacency. We like to say that each day you fail to manage the issue you’re one day closer to being too late!
