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.
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.
