No messing with de-dusting system

A self-contained personnel de-dusting unit, described as ideal for construction sites as well as the quarry and mining industries, has been introduced by Air Control Industries of Axminster.
25a_0214Blower powered, it is said to remove dust and debris with none of the potential health hazards and risks associated with compressed air alternatives (authorised or not).
The ACI Clean Down Booth is a self-contained unit incorporating the company’s internationally proven JetBlack personnel de-dusting system.
This delivers a high volume of air at low pressure (2.52 PSI), sufficient to remove dust and fibres effectively and safely, even when directed at exposed skin.
Air is directed using a hand-held gun attached to a flexible hose.
Personnel can use the booth without removing their PPE equipment and expect to complete a clean-down in about 20 seconds.
In addition to the JetBlack dust removal system, there is an externally located blower-powered exhaust system which draws the dislodged dust downwards away from individuals and out through a grille floor.
The dust is then either collected in bags in dust receptacles or ducted into extraction systems.
To be compliant with the USA’s OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) requirements, the JetBlack is supplied with a chip-guard.
The chip-guard is supplied as standard in the USA but is optional elsewhere.
