Imperial Systems: The Best Industrial Ductwork For The Metalworking Industry


If you’ve been in the metalworking industry for any amount of time then you know that metalworking produces an environment that can be unhealthy to the workers without the proper industrial ductwork.  Some of the hazards that metal fabricators encounter are sparks, fumes, dust, and smoke that occurs during the metalworking process.

Industrial DuctworkOne of the most efficient metalworking processes is done with plasma cutting or laser cutting.  Plasma cutting produces some of the most optimum cuts within the metalworking industry. However, some of the dangers associated with plasma cutting is due to the smoke produced.   Hexavalent Chromium or Hex Chrome is a smoke that increases the chances of lung cancer.  In the metalworking industry, it is imperative that the proper industrial ductwork is installed to combat the dangers of the job.
