Thermal spraying is classified as a noxious industry and Thermaspray adheres strictly to applicable environmental and health & safety legislation. Thermaspray is the only company in South Africa’s thermal spray industry to be wholly compliant with the emission requirements of the Clean Air Act of 2010.
Each of Thermaspray's spray booths has its own air extraction system. The extraction systems are designed to remove all dust particles and excess gasses, with 10 to 12 volume air changes per minute.
The filter cartridges incorporate Ultra Tek media, which offers filtration efficiency of 99.9% @ 0.5 micron.
The extraction systems use dry filter cartridges, where the dust from the booth enter the top of the filter, the dust then collects on the surface of the filter, and clean air exits the system. The filters are cleaned automatically and all powder is collected and disposed of in an environmentally safe manner.
