AirBench has a range of extraction and filtration systems ideal for wet filtration in the workplace

Wet Filters for Flammable Dusts

Combustible and flammable dusts can often be safely captured using standard filtration systems. In some cases, for example grinding of titanium, dry filtration is not a recommended approach. Our range of wet filtration systems and wet downdraught benches extract flammable and explosive dusts safely.

Why Specify Wet Filtration?

Some dusts including titanium and magnesium are too reactive to be captured safely using dry filtration in most situations. Titanium is a major source of dust in aerospace applications and is hazardous; when worked it can produce sparks, and the dust produced is flammable – meaning titanium processing is high risk.

Mixed dusts can also introduce risks; for example, mixing aluminium and steel dusts can generate a thermite reaction. Thermite mixes can self-ignore.

For these applications we specify wet filtration systems. Wet filters use water and a self-induced scrubbing action to remove dusts from airstreams. Dust is removed as a sludge from the filtration unit and can be disposed of through your standard dust disposal supplier.

New AirBench WB – Wet Filtered Downdraught Bench

The new AirBench WB is a self-contained downdraught bench with wet filtration system. Following extensive development and testing, this new range is now in service capturing titanium dust at major manufacturers in the UK; reducing risk and keeping operators safe.

Our Range of Systems for Wet Filtration

We offer two solutions for wet filtration of flammable dusts – self-contained downdraught benches with wet filtration systems; and stand-alone wet collectors for connection to other systems.
