Why is dust and spark extraction so important?

When grinding, deburring or polishing, dust, sparks and gases arise during the process. Maintaining a dust free working environment is important to protect the health of employees and moreover increases the service life of machinery. Hot flying sparks can, if not cooled down, lead to flammable situations. Dust of certain materials can be flammable or even explosive. In the right mixture with oxygen and an effective ignition source, these substances can cause serious fires and violent explosions. This may cause injuries, damage parts of buildings and systems and ignite other flammable substances.

How do extraction units work?

During the grinding, deburring and/or polishing of steel, stainless-steel and aluminium the dust is collected at various stages in the process. The dust that arises during this process is extracted by one or more extraction mouths in the machine. Per grinding head this mouth ensures optimal dust extraction during this specific part of the grinding process. The dust is drawn by the extraction mouth through a pipe and enters the extraction unit.

First stage is a Vortex chamber that binds the materials in water and cools hot sparks.
Second stage is a stainless steel mesh filter that filters the larges substances. This filter will get dirty and therefore needs to be cleaned occasionally. The coolant can be discharged by container, ball valve or even automatically.
Third and last stage is an optional H14 HEPA filter, this filter will capture the carcinogenic substances.

When even these small last particles are filtered the air is purified can be safe returned into the hall or outside.
