Fumes are harmful solid particles, that can be generated by chemical reactions such as oxidisation and thermal breakdown, and are one of the key health risks facing site workers today. In this section we also talk about dangerous vapours, such as those from solvents.Equipment Range
A proven methodology, devised by the RVT Group, to ensure effective control of all on-site health hazards.
Activities such as painting, welding and burning, cause dangerous fumes that can quickly damage your health if not properly controlled. It is important to capture and filter these fumes at source, whilst continuously forcing fresh air into the work area, to ensure that workers can continue their activities in a safe environment.
The effect of fumes varies substantially depending on the exposure time, type of fumes and concentration of fumes. Workers could therefore experience anything from dizziness and fatigue, to lung disease and heart disease. Some of the more volatile fumes, such as welding fumes, have been classified as carcinogenic, which means that they can cause cancer.
RVT believe that effective fume control can be managed in three easy steps;
Ravex fume extraction units help to ensure that you remain well within Work Exposure Limits (WEL) limits
