Custom Downdraft Tables & Case Studies


Problem
Dealing with certain toxic chemicals in a sanitary environment typically requires special equipment designed to comply with specific plant standards to ensure worker safety. OSHA regulatory concerns brought this issue to the forefront for a nationally recognized drug company. The company decided at that point to contact DualDraw to help them meet their tough air quality requirements.

Solution
DualDraw built a customized downdraft table using stainless steel for easy cleaning and sanitary purposes. The downdraft table also contained hazardous duty fixtures to ensure operator safety when working in a potentially volatile environment. The unit came with a cleanout pan and petcock for easy removal of toxic substances that may drip through the table surface.

Problem
Penn DOT had particular process requirements for their soil sampling area. They wanted to ensure air safety of their workers while maintaining a complete and efficient work area. Previous to calling, the soil sampling process was emitting many dust particles into the air that were subsequently inhaled by workers. Therefore, to protect the workers, they had to spread out the process causing process inefficiencies and slow downs.

Problem
Fabricating kitchen cabinets makes a big mess and causes breathing zone discomfort if the wood dust and adhesive fumes are not managed correctly. A large kitchen cabinet manufacturer contacted DualDraw with specific air quality needs. They had an assembly line where workers would perform various processes on cabinets – processes that created noxious fumes and harmful dust. A self-contained filter solution was required that would allow workers to seamlessly continue production while the air surrounding their breathing zones was continuously filtered.

Solution
After consulting with the customer to define their needs, DualDraw built a custom unit that came complete with a variable speed conveyor belt combined with downdraft capability. The resulting product has been in production since installation and has had very favorable results.
