What happens when we breathe in dust?
The lungs are protected by a series of defence mechanisms in different regions of the respiratory tract.
When a person breathes in, particles suspended in the air enter the nose, but not all of them reach the lungs. The nose is an efficient filter. Most large particles are stopped in it, until they are removed mechanically by blowing the nose or sneezing.
Some of the smaller particles succeed in passing through the nose to reach the windpipe and the dividing air tubes that lead to the lungs. Having a quality wood dust extraction unit in place is vital to ensure clean and safe breathable air for your employees.
We are experts at designing and installing wood dust extraction systems nationwide. Call us on 0114 234 1114 and speak to a member of our team who will be happy to discuss your concerns and requirements.
