Based on the extensive experience of our sales engineers we will work to design the most efficient filter unit that matches your requirements no matter how exacting the requirement.
Every filtration unit is carefully developed by our Team and can be presented in both 2D and 3D formats.
We manufacture all of our BlueClean® range of dust extraction filter units from our purpose-built facility in the north of Manchester.
We make sure your equipment arrives on time to your bespoke specifications.
We provide spare parts and consumables for all of our BlueClean® range of dust extraction units to ensure that your filter unit remains as efficient as the day that it was first installed.

Why Control Fume and Dust
The top priority of any employer is to ensure that their employees have safe working conditions, and that their wellbeing is taken care of. In workplaces where fume or dust is generated, this means that the contaminant needs to be monitored and, if necessary, controlled.
Many industrial processes create small airborne particles which form fume or dust clouds – some of which not being visible to the human eye. These clouds often remain airborne for a considerable length of time and if not controlled, particles within these clouds can be inhaled through the nose or mouth – with the particulate size and the type of dust determining the effect that they have on the body. The consequences of inhaling respirable dust particles can be severe, leading to a reduced quality of life and in certain cases to the reduced lifespan of those exposed to the contaminant. In extreme cases exposure to certain fumes and dusts can even be immediately life threatening.
Get In Touch
Although stopped by a body’s natural defences, larger dust particles can still affect skin, resulting in skin irritation. Smaller respirable dust particles however are able to pass through the body’s natural defences enabling them to be inhaled deep into the lungs and other organs. This can result in multiple illnesses such as occupational asthma, lung disease or in the formation of a range of cancers.
To find out more about regulation in the workplace, take a look at the COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) guidelines:
Many dusts are not only dangerous in terms of the health to those exposed to them; they can also be potentially explosive, offering a different type of risk. It is therefore essential that they are controlled and handled safely in line with the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmosphere Regulations (DSEAR) alongside the ATEX Directive. All LEV equipment in the UK and Europe handling potentially explosive materials has to comply with these sets of legislation.
LEV systems handling potentially explosive dusts that are installed incorrectly become a danger in their own right. Sadly, there are a number of recorded instances where explosions that have taken place in non-compliant LEV equipment have resulted in extensive damage to workspaces and in some cases where they have caused life-changing injuries to personnel caught up in the explosion. In some tragic instances, these explosions have been fatal.
It is therefore vital to remember that the mishandling or ignorance of the risk of potentially explosive materials can lead to catastrophic results.
Local Exhaust Ventilation
Along with the benefits of protecting the health and safety of employees, Local Exhaust Ventilation equipment will also help to:
- Improve workplace cleanliness, reducing the frequency of maintenance
- Prevent the breakdown of production equipment that is vital to any business’ day-to-day running
- Improve the quality of the end product
- Reduce the ATEX zoning of a production/processing area, resulting in a lower capital cost when specifying new plant and equipment being positioned in the area.
Whatever the industry that you are dealing with, integratedAIR Filtration have a high-specification system that will serve your dust extraction requirements. Some of the industries that we can provide for include:
