Design Service| Dust & Fume Extraction

The Client

Silverstone Composites are experts in the design and manufacture of carbon fibre. They work across the automotive and motorsport sectors and also create a wide range of bespoke products using high-performance, durable composite components.

The Requirement

Silverstone Composites came to us with a need for a bespoke dust and fume extraction system which would meet the requirements of an environment where carbon fibre is being worked.
This material requires cutting, sanding, and machining, which are all processes that can release harmful particles and dust into the atmosphere, putting workers at risk.

The Solution

We designed, installed, and commissioned a dust and fume extraction system consisting of the following:
• Externally sited filter dust collector
• Duct system
• 6 downdraft grinding tables
• Downdraft bench ducted to an EX-rated fan set
