Dust extraction

VG is the pioneer or perhaps the inventor of the 100% wet-acting filter unit. Grinding, deburring, finishing and edge breaking are common and necessary activities within the metal industry. All of these metal operations release a significant amount of metal dust that can cause serious health problems to the operator or to other employees. So a clean working environment not only increases the health and safety of you and your employees, but also contributes to higher productivity!

VG has the appropriate wet-working filter unit for each machine. The dust has to go through the water, which is very important for fire safety. VG also supplies the suitable wet working dust extraction for other machine brands.

 

Why is dust extraction so important?

These microscopic metal particles enter deep into the lungs and deposit there, leading to impaired lung function and possibly lung disease. Dust from metalworking processes must therefore be controlled to prevent permanent health risks. The key to dust control, is to efficiently capture and isolate the grinding dust before it reaches the breathing zones of the operator or other nearby workers. In addition to causing health problems, grinding dust also creates an annoying and dirty work environment. So a clean working environment not only increases the health and safety of you and your employees, but also contributes to higher productivity!
