The dust created by industrial processes, various functions and movement in industrial facilities mixes with indoor air and creates problems for many companies. In addition to dust from industrial processes, impurities coming from outside add to the challenges in production facilities. Even regular cleaning of the premises does not solve the dust problem completely. Challenges are also posed by old ventilation systems that are inadequate for current needs although they comply with the regulations of the time of their building.
The wording of old regulations is often vague, stating, for example, that ventilation must be adequate and indoor air quality satisfactory – without specifying what ‘adequate’ or ‘satisfactory’ means exactly. Impurities in indoor air today can be something completely different to what they were three decades ago.
When the fouling of the produced goods can be prevented, the frequency of cleaning and device servicing can be reduced.
A more cost-efficient production process through clean indoor air
When the fouling of the produced goods can be prevented, the frequency of cleaning and device servicing can be reduced, and the efficiency of production increases. In practice, this means fewer breaks and more operation time in production. The number of faulty products and product returns will fall significantly. Improved production efficiency means lower production costs and less waste. Cleaning costs will also be considerably lower.
Dust in warehouses jeopardizes product durability and quality.
Efficient air purification for improved durability of stored goods
It is not always enough just to prevent fouling of produced goods. Dust in warehouses can cause problems to product durability and quality. Diesel forklift trucks produce exhaust gases, which must be addressed especially in the food industry. Rubber tyres grind against concrete floors all day, producing fine concrete dust in the air. Also, when the warehouse doors are open for loading, impurities from the outside mix with indoor air, and even find their way inside the boxes in storage. The importance of clean indoor air is something we do not often think about.
Perhaps we should though, as considerable savings can be made through clean indoor air. For example, if intensive cleaning of indoor air helps processed food keep edible for one more day, an efficient air purification system will quickly pay itself back.
