In the food processing industry, as in any manufacturing facility, dust from grains, nuts, fibers, and other solids can be a serious problem, both for employees’ health and for company costs. Particulates gather in the air, posing a threat to workers who are exposed to them throughout the day, and when they are not properly filtered, they can lead to a number of respiratory conditions. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) enforces various regulations regarding grain and other particulates which may put your employees at risk – not only from inhalation of dust, but from explosions, as well. Safety is a priority, of course, but it is not the only benefit you will gain from a professional air purification solution.
Imperial Systems designs and installs dust collection equipment for a variety of industrial applications, and we are proud to serve the agricultural and food processing industries by protecting companies and their communities from harmful particulates and conditions that may lead to fires. By installing a new, cutting edge air purification solution in your processing plant, you can better address the known dangers of the dust created by processing grains and other solids. These hazards include:
- “Farmer’s lung” – a condition that can lead to scarring, or fibrosis of the lungs
- Combustion as a result of grain dust accumulating in the air and in air ducts
- Respiratory conditions affecting the nasal passages and bronchi
- Equipment malfunctions as a result of dust building up on machinery
While the safety of your employees is undoubtedly your number one consideration when you consider an air purification system, you may not have considered an industrial dust collector as a long term investment. Continue reading to discover how our air purification solutions can benefit your bottom line in the long run.
The Cost Benefit of an Industrial Air Purification Solution
It naturally follows that protecting the health and safety of your employees will save you some costs by avoiding sick days, workman’s compensation, and so on.
