Linishing, grinding or polishing is a typical application for many fabricated or manufactured components or cast / fabricated items. There is typically a requirement to remove residues of either welding or mould lines and similar issues occur with either forged or stamped components where the press tools will leave either screws or marking on the surface of the parts. This will have to be removed either automatically or manually utilising a combination of grinding and leadership. In addition polishing and finishing of components to ensure A quality surface can again be carried out automatically or manually. All these operations can generate dust as well as odours or fumes that will need to be collected and removed from the working area. In these instances we are able to supply both ductwork, goods, Filtration and abatement systems to provide a safe working area. Certain substances and materials may also require specialist treatment as they may constitute an explosion hazard such as when handling aluminium or other flammable materials. Specialist materials such as titanium also produce an unpleasant odour when ground as the material burns releasing a pungent fume. This may have to be removed from the airstream or as a minimum discharged high-level to allow dispersal of the odour . We are able to offer any of the systems on all forms of grinding and metalworking operations. Finishing and coating applications requiring fume extraction can also be offered by Dustair as well.

Before and after installation images of a linisher application utilising wet dust arresters for collection and removal of the contaminant. The customer carries out the linishing and dressing of large wing spars manufactured in both steel and aluminium materials. As a consequence parts of the process produce sparking materials whilst the other produces potentially explosive materials. As a consequence two systems were provided running alongside each other, each extracting from the specific application they are suited to. In both instances the air was directed through wet dust arresters in order to quench any sparks and also remove any explosion issues by putting the aluminium materials into a water substrate. Multiposition arm system enabled the operators to place the exhaust wherever required within the working area as the variability of products worked upon meant that individual benches or fixed hoods could not be utilised.
