Fume Extraction Systems

Vortex design, manufacture and install a range of dust and fume extraction systems. These can either be from our standard range or specifically custom designed to suit your requirements. e.g. 1.0m3/s to 50m3/s.

Some of the important factors of dust extraction are:

  • Ensuring you have sufficient extraction at the machine head to protect your equipment.
  • Ensuring once you have control of the dust, you then capture it effectively and process it with minimal environmental effects.

Important fume control factors:

  • Making sure that there is sufficient airflow in the work environment to give an appropriate number of air changes per hour to ensure worker safety in accordance with O.H.S. requirements.
  • Ensuring the airflow conditions are appropriate when using fume extraction systems with industrial boilers and burners.
  • Ensuring that the capturing media used is appropriate to minimise any environmental impact in compliance with resource consents.
  • Once we have control of the dust and fume it can then be processed as required. This can involve transporting to a waste bin, storage bin, briquetting machine or a boiler feed system.
