Laser and plasma processes generate dusts and vapors that contain a variety of oxides. The size of these contaminants impact the overall toxicity level. The longer employees are exposed to these particulates, the higher the health hazard risk.
Employers and machine operators must remain current on the hazards of laser and plasma dusts and follow proper safety precautions to ensure protection.
Laser cutting machines vary in power and range from dangerous to extremely hazardous. When the beam interacts with metals, high temperatures cause the air to expand and transmit dusts, smoke, aerosols, and more.
Plasma cutting produces dusts and fumes that may consist of nitrogen, argon, hydrogen, and mixtures with oxygen. When metals that are coated in materials, such as hex chromium, are being welded or cut, contaminants are released and must be captured to protect workers from serious health risks.
Industrial facilities where laser and plasma cutting take place must install central dust collector systems to guarantee safe working conditions.
Dynamo offers all of the products and engineering consulting for your dust collection needs.
