Wet Downdraft Tables
Capturing Combustible Dust in the Workplace
Combustible dust is a by-product of many industrial work applications. A reading known as a KST value determines whether dust is combustible or not, with a reading greater than zero showing its combustibility. Combustible dust is a serious fire and explosion risk, creating the potential for severe injuries or death to employees, costly property damage, long-term environmental harm and an interruption to normal business activities.
The key to keeping combustible dust at bay is to capture it at the source, before it has an opportunity to cause damage. Wet downdraft tables capture and contain combustible dust, using water as the medium to bond to particles and render them harmless
Why Use a Wet Downdraft Table?
Wet downdraft tables are valuable pieces of equipment if you perform high risk applications that include:
- Grinding, cutting or deburring metals like aluminum, magnesium or titanium
- Handling and processing certain chemicals
- Mixing, grinding, blending and packaging food products
- Mixing, grinding, blending and packaging pharmaceuticals
- Mixing and grinding rubber
The type of wet downdraft table that is best for your workspace depends on a variety of factors, including the size of the operation, the types of dust being produced, overall safety needs and budget. Since worker safety always takes precedence when explosive dust is produced in the workplace, trusting Diversitech to match you up with the ideal wet downdraft table is the way to go.
