DC Tromb Turbo VFD Asbestos
Why Asbestos fibres are so dangerous?
Asbestos was a widely used isolation material in the 1950-1970s, which later has been found out to be highly hazardous. A huge industry has been built around the removal of asbestos. As asbestos is a highly hazardous material, it must be removed with caution, and absolutely not with whatever kind of equipment and lack of protection. Contact us for guidance in a safe solution!
How hazardous is asbestos fibres?
If there is a risk that asbestos fibres may be released in the air, then they must be captured at their point of escape or their source, then disposed of without any hazard for persons or the environment. We know how to prevent these dangerous particles from entering your lungs!
The smaller size of the particles – the more dangerous
Particles with diameters between 0.1-3 µm are the most critical for the lungs. A large part of these will be stored in the lungs if inhaled. Quartz, Asbestos, PCBs and Cobalt are examples of hazardous and carcinogenic substances with very small dust particles that stay suspended in the air in many workplaces. The asbestos fibres must be captured at their point of escape or their source, then disposed of without any hazard for persons or the environment, in line with the latest state of the art. If complete capture is not possible, then additional state-of-the-art ventilation measures must be put in place.
Best practice after Asbestos operations
Once work has been completed, tools, including suction lines, working materials and the work area must be cleaned carefully. Any items contaminated with asbestos fibres that cannot be cleaned satisfactorily must be wetted and disposed of correctly. After cleaning, the working area must be sufficiently ventilated.

Refilling these containers is not permitted. The asbestos fibre content of the air discharged into the open air must not exceed 1000 F/m³.
