Client Story 

Collaboration is Key

One client was using talc to coat rubber seals by placing them into a barrel, adding talc, spinning the barrel, and then removing the coated rubber seals. During the opening of the barrel visible amounts of dust could be seen exiting the barrel and into the operators breathing zone. Initial dust exposure monitoring showed dust levels were above the Workplace Exposure Standards (WES). Control was needed!!

The client suggested we use their engineering team to develop a fit for purpose extraction system. This approach meant the team was involved in the process, they could tailor it to their specific requirements, it saved cost to the business, and it could be done quickly. Repeat exposure monitoring showed that dust was being drawn into the extraction hood and the dust levels were well below WES and their team were no longer exposed to elevated dust levels.
