Combustible Dust Cleaning
“On time. Professional and did a great job
—Facility maintenance company
In many industrial environments, one of the by-products of your manufacturing processes can be combustible dust. Combustible dust is any fine material that has the ability to catch fire and explode when mixed with air. Some forms of combustible dust include organic materials, many metals, and some nonmetallic, inorganic materials.
Painters USA, Inc.’s industrial cleaning division – K-Clean USA - can help to dissuade this potentially hazardous dust and restore your facility to a safer, healthier environment. Our trained cleaning professionals use explosion proof vacuums (or spark proof vacuums) to collect the particles and dispose of them properly.
The types of facilities that are at risk of a dust explosion include:
- Food processing/production
- Grain elevators
- Metal fabricators & processors
- Coal-fired power plants
- Chemical manufacturers
- Woodworking facilities
- Recycling facilities
Dust typically accumulates in open areas and overhead structures, but can also hide inside ventilation systems, false ceilings, conveyor equipment, and on support beams. And according to OSHA, you should not use compressed air hoses or brooms to clean surfaces with combustible dust – only vacuums approved for dust collection (i.e. explosion proof vacuum and collection systems).
K-Clean USA has employees & crews certified for confined space entry to get to those tight spaces where combustible dust may have collected. Our crews are completely safety conscious on every project, protecting themselves, your employees, and your facility from harm. Also, the Painters USA family of companies uses the E-Verify System when hiring new employees. E-Verify runs through the Social Security Administration & The Department of Homeland Security to ensure only trustworthy & legitimate employees are on your premises to complete your industrial cleaning projects.
K-Clean USA offers maintenance programs that can best suit your production & budget cycles: weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annual combustible dust cleaning programs are available – or on an as-needed basis.
