Importance of Safe Dust Collection in Battery Manufacturing

The processes involved in manufacturing acid batteries release inorganic lead dust and other toxic materials into the air, threatening worker health. Then these toxic materials are distributed far and wide around the plant, settling on equipment, floors, walls and other surfaces. Dust collection systems are the most cost-effective way to limit workers’ exposure to lead dust, improve air quality and reduce combustible dust incidents. Learn more about how they work around the clock to safely capture and contain airborne contaminants.
