Work-related cancer is mainly caused by the carcinogens respiratory quartz and hexavalent chromium and the carcinogenic processes of hardwood and welding processes. Take care of your health. Every year, 2000 - 3000 Dutch die from (lung) cancer caused by overexposure at the workplace.
Welding fumes and exposure to hexavalent chromium cause (lung) cancer. Using MIG-MAG welding torches with integrated extraction reduces more than 95% of the welding fume.
To compare the performance of different vacuum extractors, TNO has developed a standard test.
This room is specially equipped to study the dust emissions produced by professional tools, especially those of fine particulate matter (PM).
When using tools to work with hardwood, exposure to carcinogenic wood dust is extremely high. In many cases, the legal limit values are exceeded.
When using tools to work with lime sand blocks/ concrete or stone material, exposure to carcinogenic respiratory quartz is extremely high. in many cases, the legal limit value is exceeded.
