Local Exhaust Ventilation

Local exhaust ventilation systems remove the contaminant before it spreads through the workplace.  The systems are designed to take advantage of the motion of the contaminant in order to capture it without drawing in large amounts of air as well.  A properly designed and engineered Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) is a key tool in ensuring adequate control of hazardous substances.  It is the only accepted method of protecting employees from exposure to hazardous pollutants.

We can help you with design specifications engineered to ensure optimum control of pollutants at all times and operate your facility in full compliance with the requirements of the occupational health and safety act.  We will provide you with the following:
