In machine shops, mist and fumes are a big nuisance for workers. These harmful toxins are produced by the oil-based, emulsion-type or synthetic coolants that are used in today’s CNC machines. When inhaled, oil mist and coolant mist can cause respiratory problems such as irritating the nose, eyes and throat, and aggravating existing respiratory issues. Surface grinding also produces a lot of dust that can lead to a number of respiratory problems. All these can lead to employee absenteeism and lowered operational productivity, and this can be a serious blow to your company.
OSHA regulations require all machine shops to have a proper mist collection and ventilation system in place to ensure the safety of employees. As a CNC machine shop owner, it is your duty to ensure your workplace environment is clean and safe while staying compliant to OSHA standards.
At Clean Air Company, we are highly committed to help you do just that. We offer a wide range of air filtration and dust collection systems apt for machine shops, including welding fume collectors, oil mist collectors, coolant mist collectors, air purifiers, and more.
