Understanding the types of dust & fume pollutants

In various industries, the presence of dust, fumes, exhaust fumes, wood dust, and oil mist poses significant health risks and environmental challenges. As a leading provider of dust & fume extraction products, we understand the importance of addressing these airborne pollutants. Our cutting-edge filtration products are designed to effectively remove a wide range of contaminants, ensuring cleaner and safer working environments across diverse industries.

Dust Particles:

  • Dust particles can originate from various sources, including construction sites, manufacturing processes, and machining activities to name a few. These particles vary in size, from large visible particles to finer ones that are inhalable and pose health risks. Our dust & fume extraction products efficiently capture these particles, reducing the risk of respiratory problems and maintaining cleaner workspaces. Our Wet Collectors or Reverse Pulse Filters for example are great at collecting very fine particulate matter.


  • Fumes often result from industrial processes like welding, soldering, and metalworking. These fine airborne particles can contain toxic elements and pose health hazards when inhaled. Our extraction products effectively capture fumes at the source such as our range of Downdraught Benches, preventing their dispersion into the air and safeguarding workers from exposure.

Exhaust Fumes:

  • Exhaust fumes from vehicles and machinery contain harmful gases like carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and particulate matter. Our vehicle exhaust extraction products, such as our Hose Reel Kits, aid in removing these pollutants, contributing to healthier indoor air quality in automotive workshops and industrial settings.

Wood Dust:

  • Wood dust is a common occupational hazard in woodworking environments. Inhalation of wood dust particles can lead to respiratory issues and allergic reactions. Our specialised extraction products, such as our Wood Dust Collectors or Shaker Filters for woodwork areas efficiently capture these particles, ensuring a safer environment for woodworkers.

Oil Mist:

  • Oil mist generated from machining processes in manufacturing plants poses both health risks and cleanliness challenges. Our extraction products, like our Oil Mist Filters are tailored to capture oil mist efficiently, preventing its spread and accumulation in workspaces, machinery, and surrounding surfaces.

At iXtract, we understand the diverse nature of airborne pollutants in various industries. Our range of extraction products are designed to cater to these specific needs, ensuring optimal air quality and workplace safety. By investing in our advanced extraction products, businesses can mitigate health risks, comply with regulations, and create healthier work environments for their employees.
