Industrial ventilation is essential for commercial businesses whose operations require employees to be in contact with potentially toxic airborne substances or flammable vapors created during the production of various goods and services. Industrial ventilation works to both protect workers from illness and injury caused by flammable substances and dirty air and to prevent equipment failure and dust collection that can result in fire hazards and costly repairs.
Industrial ventilation is often used to remove a variety of substances and fumes from the air, including:
- Welding Fumes
- Solvent Vapors
- Oil Mists
Industrial ventilation systems are also necessary for commercial operations due to state and federal guidelines regarding employee working conditions. OSHA provides a set of standards all industrial organizations are expected to follow on how to properly ventilate a facility.
Dust explosions are a very real danger and continue to cause concern due to a lack of ventilation. Just a few of the recent examples of failure to properly ventilate include:
