TITLE
Dust extraction vacuum pipes
ARTICLE
Several areas of the plant required regular cleaning which involved manually removing fine dust. It was decided to replace the manual tools with industrial vacuums to reduce the risk of dust inhalation.

A system of pipes was installed in relevant areas of the plant to allow an extraction unit to be used with a light pipe by the operator in a relatively dust free environment. This change has significantly reduced the risk of dust inhalation.
