Dust Extraction

When it comes to dust extraction a properly designed Local Exhaust ventilation system (LEV) is extremely important and must meet the minimum performance parameters stipulated in HSG258 whilst satisfying the requirements of health and safety legislation. Inhalable and respirable dust has a major impact across a wide spectrum of industries from international pharmaceutical giants to small woodworking shops with just a couple of employees.

At Flamefast Extraction Solutions, we work hard to provide a package of equipment that will help you achieve effective dust extraction with the ultimate aim of providing clean breathable air in a dust-free working environment that complies with health & safety standards.

Our qualified and experienced project managers will guide you through the process from the initial consultation through to installation, commissioning, after sales services and finally annual LEV tests…we are with you all the way.

Extraction Ducting icon


Effective extraction starts with the capture of airborne dust and contaminants at the point of creation. We select the best method from a vast range of options which can include full enclosures, partial enclosures capture hoods and even specialist tools with integral suction for connection onto a centralised vacuum system.

Extraction Transport icon


The conveying of dust particles at the correct speed is critical if you want to avoid blockages in the system. Dust is predominantly lazy and will happily lay in the ducting system if the airflow isn’t sufficient to move it along.

Extraction Collection Icon


The heavier dust particles will be collected in sacks or bins and the small respirable particles will be captured by a carefully selected filter system appropriate for the contaminate type but can include cyclonic separators, electrostatic precipitators & wet scrubbers.

COSHH which stands for “Control of Substances Hazardous to Health” classifies dust as one of the hazardous substances that needs to be controlled. It is therefore important to consider the dangers within your workshop in order to assess what is needed for effective dust control. Dust from metal work such as grinding dust and woodworking dust in particular can cause serious health issues which is why it is important to implement good practise for dust control from the capture of dust particles through to the transport via the ducting system and finally collection.
