More specifically, industries throughout Florida and South Georgia depend on trusted companies like Markair Inc. to help manage their air quality and reduce pollution. With a proven track record for delivering effective solutions,  we are a top choice for businesses looking to control their emissions with dust collection and air pollution control ventilation systems.

1. Process Exhaust And Make-Up Air

In different facilities, such as pulp & paper mills, industrial ventilation systems are used to control and manage the air quality. Make-up air is fresh outdoor air that is brought into a building to replace the air that has been exhausted due to ventilation systems, exhaust fans, or other processes. This air, which can be 100% outdoor air, heated and/or cooled, helps to maintain a balanced indoor air quality by diluting indoor pollutants and replenishing oxygen levels. Make-up air is crucial for ensuring proper ventilation and preventing negative pressure within a building.

2. Dust And Fume Collection Systems

One primary use for dust collection and air pollution control systems is to collect and filter dust and fumes emitted during industrial processes. These systems use various techniques, such as cartridge collectors, cyclones, baghouses, wet collectors, and electrostatic precipitators, to capture and remove pollutants from the air. This helps maintain air quality and protects workers’ health by preventing them from inhaling harmful particles. It’s important to note that some dust can be classified as explosive. For example, facilities like food manufacturing and pharmaceutical plants must have proper dust collection systems and explosion protections in place to prevent dangerous explosions. NFPA protection devices are then used to keep the system compliant and safe.

3. Ambient Dust And Fume Collection

Sometimes, source capture isn’t possible because of the size or location of the pollutant emissions. In these cases, ambient dust and fume collection systems are used to filter pollutants from the surrounding air. These systems pull in contaminated air, filter it, and release clean air into the environment. They can be highly effective for different industries, such as metalworking, soldering and welding.

4. Dilution Ventilation

The process of adding clean, fresh air to possibly contaminated air to lower the concentration of airborne contaminants such as smoke, particulates, gasses, and aerosols from viruses, and vapors is known as dilution ventilation. Utilizing exhaust fans or intake devices (i.e., louvers, roll-up doors, etc.), can help reduce contaminants’ concentration in a given space. Dilution ventilation is often used in conjunction with source capture systems for optimal air quality control.

Final Thoughts

It’s essential for businesses to prioritize air pollution control and invest in high-quality dust collection and industrial ventilation systems. Not only does this help maintain a healthy environment for workers, but it also demonstrates corporate social responsibility by reducing harmful emissions.
