Composite Dust Extraction In Operation

AirBench captures composite dusts by drawing them down through the downdraught bench‘s work surface into the integral filters.

Dust is captured without operator intervention or adjustment.

AirBench considerations for the Composites Industry

Dust control in the composites industry falls into two broad categories.

GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic or Fibreglass) and similar bulk manufacture produces large volumes of dust, while carbon fibre work tends to be more precise and produces only trimming/finishing dusts In either case, operators are more effective where PPE is less intrusive. In almost every case, our AirBench dust extraction systems can reduce or remove the requirement for PPE.

  • For carbon fibre, we recommend our FN type heavy duty downdraught bench with our two-stage ‘F’ type filters; these provide a very high level of protection against fine carbon fibre dusts, while retaining low overall filter costs. Consider our FPK type for seated work.
  • For GRP, we recommend our FN type bench with single stage ‘A’ type filters.
  • For larger parts, consider either VertEx with or without a VB booth, with our ‘F’ type filters, to provide large fully extracted areas.
