Woodworking dust collectors

Woodworking inevitably generates dust and chips that can pose risks to workers’ health and the efficiency of production processes.
Wood dust can cause various health problems, including eye, skin and respiratory tract irritation. Prolonged exposure can lead to chronic diseases such as asthma, dermatitis and, in some cases, even cancer. In addition, wood dust can pose a fire and explosion hazard if not properly managed.

Occupational safety regulations provide specific measures for the prevention of wood dust-related risks. Woodworking companies must ensure that they adopt efficient extraction and filtration systems that comply with current regulations.

Use of Personal Protective Equipment

The use of PPE (personal protective equipment) to remove toxic dust is extremely important for the safety of workers working in environments with a high risk of exposure to these harmful substances. The most common PPE used for this purpose are respiratory masks, which can filter airborne particles before they are inhaled by the worker.

ACD-rated or Atex-certified industrial vacuum cleaners

The use of industrial vacuum cleaners equipped with High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters and ACD/Atex classification is critical to ensure the health and safety of workers, as well as to reduce the environmental impact of harmful dust released into the air during woodworking processes.

ACD-rated or Atex-certified industrial vacuum cleaners for use in zone 22 for wood dust

ACD-rated or Atex-certified vacuum cleaners for use in Zone 22 are designed to handle wood dust safely and efficiently, reducing the risk of fire and explosion. These devices are equipped with high-efficiency filters, fully antistatic and with proper collection systems, ensuring compliance with Italian regulations and international standards in terms of safety. The major features to look for in the vacuum cleaner are:

  • a significant air flow rate to effectively remove all wood dust at the source before it is dispersed into the environment
  • Guarantee safe suction of combustible dust by designing for ACD-rated or ATEX-certified for use in hazardous areas, ensuring equipment designed to prevent ignition, protecting people and workplaces.
  • HEPA filtration of the machine, so that even the finest particles are removed and not re-entered

Saw wood dust vacuuming

Saw are machines used to cut wood and generate a significant amount of dust and chips. Installing a proper vacuum system on the mitre saw is essential to reduce workers’ exposure to wood dust and maintain the efficiency of the machine.

Lathe wood dust vacuuming

Installing a vacuum system specifically for lathes is critical to minimize worker exposure to wood dust and to maintain machine efficiency. The vacuum system should be positioned to capture dust and chips directly at the source, minimizing dispersion into the air.

Centralized wood vacuum systems

Centralized vacuum systems are an effective and cost-effective solution for managing wood dust in industrial and craft environments. These systems consist of a central vacuum unit connected to various woodworking machines, such as mitre saws, lathes, planers and sanders, through a network of pipes and ducts.
