What role can source-captured Fume Extractor play in workplace IAQ?

What role can source-captured Fume Extractor play in workplace IAQ?

Adhesive fumes from nail salon. Smoke produced by 3D printing. Particles produced by spraying. Welding gases and particles. Chemical production, etc. These are indoor air quality [IAQ] pollutants that can be eliminated through the use of source capture filtration systems.

WHAT IS SOURCE CAPTURE?

Source capture is an air pollution control technology designed to capture and effectively remove pollutants as they occur, preventing them from entering the surrounding environment. This technology is achieved by setting up capture equipment or systems near pollution sources.

Source capture may be defined as the process of removing gas, smoke, fumes, and particle emissions where they are generated. Contaminants are isolated and then removed from an individual’s workspace.  

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A SOURCE CAPTURE SYSTEM?

  • Improving individual and worker health: increasing productivity and retention.
  • Lower operating costs: Source capture air purifiers are less expensive to purchase, operate and maintain than ambient (large area) filtration units.
  • Reduced energy costs: Source capture products are smaller and therefore use less energy than ambient air cleaning source capture systems.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

  • Capture stage: When the pollution source produces harmful gases or particles, the source capture purifier has a suction hood at the end of the adjustable bamboo arm to capture the pollutants near the pollution source. These devices are usually located above or around the source of pollution to ensure that the pollutants produced are effectively absorbed.

  • Transmission stage: The captured pollutants are transmitted to the multiple filtration system through pipes, air ducts, etc.
  • Treatment stage: After pollutants enter the multiple filtration system, they will go through a series of treatment processes, including filtration, adsorption, chemical reactions, etc., to remove harmful components in the pollutants. Different types of source capture purifiers may use different treatment technologies, such as bag filtration, activated carbon adsorption, chemical neutralization, etc.
  • Discharge stage: After the processed purified gas is processed inside the purifier, most of the harmful components are removed, making it cleaner and safer. Finally, the clean gas is discharged into the environment through the discharge pipe, achieving the purpose of purifying the air.

IS A SOURCE CAPTURE SYSTEM RIGHT FOR MY APPLICATION?

The type of air purification product suitable for a specific job and task depends on a variety of factors, including the application, the pollutants being emitted, the building infrastructure and the workspace.

Source capture products and ambient air filtration devices are suitable for different situations. Understanding the difference between the two is key.

Ambient collection systems draw smoke and dust from a large area or entire room, filter the air, and return it to the room. This type of source capture system is suitable for use in industrial settings, schools, hospitals, etc.

Source capture systems collect vapors and particulate matter from confined spaces or directly at the emission site. Source capture systems are ideal for workspaces used by solders, manicurists, 3D printers, and other workers who generate contaminants within their own workspace.
