The BahnsonAire fan offers a proactive solution for companies in any industry that needs a low-cost method for preventing the accumulation of fugitive dust.

Fighting Combustible Dust and Lowering Costs

Many production processes grind solids into fine particles that, under the right conditions, can become highly flammable. Known as fugitive or combustible dust, these particulates are a serious safety hazard, strictly regulated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) or National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).

Combustible dust can accumulate rapidly in rafters and on top of any equipment or high surface, but, for many companies, frequent plant shutdowns for cleaning is too costly. Capable of 24/7 operation, the BahnsonAire fan blows dust to collection systems or floors to be swept— providing constant cleaning without expensive shutdowns.

Additionally, fighting fugitive dust also helps improve overall air quality providing employees a healthier working environment and potentially improving productivity.
