Spark Traps: Why They are Worth the Investment


Spark traps, known by Imperial Systems as spark arrestors, are a crucial accessory to every metalworker. Spark traps can, however, be overlooked by metalworkers due to their inconsistency, cost and complexity. An ineffective or entire lack of a proficient spark arrestor and collecting system leads to an increased risk in danger associated with the line of work. Without them, sparks can reach the main component, where dust and flammable materials fill the air.
