Although dust does not directly hurt people, it can cause great harm to the respiratory tract, eyes and other organs. Dust with a diameter greater than 10 microns stays in the air for a short time, and can be effectively blocked in the respiratory tract during respiration, and does not enter the alveoli. However, because the wood dust contains wood tar, this substance is composed of various phenols and It is composed of hydrocarbons and contains highly carcinogenic substances. In the long run, workers will suffer from bronchitis, asthma and emphysema, and even cause cancer.
An adult breathes about 11 cubic meters of air every day, which is about 20 kilograms. It is equivalent to ten times the amount of food in a day, that is to say, air is an important food for humans. At rest, the breathing rate of adults is about 16 or 7 times per minute, and the breathing rate of babies is about 30 or 40 times per minute. People can choose pollution-free water and food but it is difficult to choose the air they breathe. Studies have shown that 68% of people’s diseases are caused by air pollution. Therefore, for health, the freshness of the air, that is, the air quality, is particularly important.
According to relevant data, pneumoconiosis accounts for about 60% of occupational diseases caused by various productive harmful factors. In the production process where there is dust, workers who work under conditions that exceed the prescribed maximum allowable concentration for a long time, coupled with the influence of other factors, may cause pneumoconiosis. The harmful factors in dust are free silica, silicate and so on. According to exposure to different components and concentrations of dust, pneumoconiosis can be divided into silicosis, silicate lung, coal lung, metal powder precipitation syndrome, caster's pneumoconiosis, and electrical pneumoconiosis.
In many production processes such as chemicals, electronics, mechanical processing, food, cement, refractory materials, non-ferrous metal smelting, casting, etc., a large amount of industrial pollution dust will be emitted. If the dust is not collected and resolved effectively, it will seriously pollute the working environment and directly affect Health of production personnel.
Therefore, equipment that produces industrial pollution dust during production operations must be equipped with cleaning equipment: industrial dust collectors. The limited collection of industrial dust collectors avoids the spread of dust and pollution of the environment, and it is also necessary to wear dust masks during production operations, so the health of production workers is guaranteed. With the rapid development of modern industry, various industrial dust pollution problems are emerging one after another, so the technology and requirements for dust removal equipment are getting higher and higher.
