All the issues related to employee health in companies are given greater attention in Corona times. Rightly so, because the employees are the most important asset of a company. The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung of 30.05.20 quoats research of the TU-Berlin on the spreading of aerosols in enclosed spaces and the possible danger of infections. Good technical ventilation, helps to minimize these risks.
Masks are worn in many companies and productions. But these masks are usually uncomfortable to wear, especially over a long period of time. Furthermore, depending on the model, they prevent the spreading of very fine aerosols, which are already produced when speaking or breathing, only to a limited extent. In closed rooms and with many people present, technical ventilation is required, allowing a high air exchange rate and thus “diluting” aerosols that may be contaminated with viruses. Systems for filtering the industrial process air also support the concept of consistent ventilation of rooms. With their highly effective filters, they absorb the air in the employee’s immediate working area and clean it of harmful particles. In combination with technical ventilation systems, this creates an improved indoor climate. For example, solder fume extraction systems in electronics production primarily protect against respirable particles (< 1 micrometer) from the solder fumes. They thus have a preventive effect against stress on the respiratory tract and chronic diseases such as asthma or bronchitis.
Solder fume extraction systems with three-stage filters to cleaning the process air are ideal. The pre-filter (class F7) binds particles above 1 µm, in the combi-filter (class H 13) particles smaller than 1 µm are bound, activated carbon neutralizes harmful gases. The devices can be coupled with soldering stations and rework systems of the manufacturer and thus provide efficient protection. A healthy indoor climate is supported and illnesses among employees can be avoided.
