Anybody who owns or manages an industrial factory or workshop knows the amount of issues that particulate matter causes. As industrialized countries continue to improve their output and expand their manufacturing operations, there is one side effect which is undesirable but is a reality. Pollution is an inevitable reality of an industrialized economy. Some countries have overtime tried to move away from manufacturing. They have tried to move towards a service based economy. These are countries whose agricultural produce is managed very efficiently. They produce in more than enough food for the entire population. The cost of food here is very low. In fact the cost of all the basic needs for survival is very low. For such a country, a manufacturing economy is not necessarily vital. A knowledge-based or service-based economy also works out well. This way manufacturing is not necessarily done within the country’s borders. Such countries do not suffer the harmful effects of pollution as much as manufacturing countries do. But the reality is that for a lot of countries a manufacturing economy is vital. Factories are necessary for both economic reasons for the whole, as well as to provide employment opportunities to the population. In such cases, one cannot simply stop manufacturing operations because of pollution. One needs to find cost effective ways to manufacture goods while efficiently and cost effectively curbing pollution. There are various types of pollution that result from any type of manufacturing process. Liquid effluents are relatively easier to treat. This is because they are controlled very easily. Their floor can be controlled simply by gravity and need not b control using machinery. The Other type of pollution that emanates from any manufacturing process is air pollution. One major contributor to air pollution is particulate matter. This is the result of almost any kind of process from a factory. Particulate matter in the air can cause a lot of problems. These problems are not just for the employees that work within the factory. Is particulate matter is released in the atmosphere, it can affect nearby residents in a very bad way.
Cutting costs on treating particulate matter
- It is cheaper to use a customized setup to treat particulate matter, than a modular one.
- Dust extraction systems are not very cheap to run, so they need to be made as efficient as possible for the local conditions.
- The expansion of capacity along with the expansion of manufacturing output for these systems is essential.
A dust collection system needs to be constantly maintained. Some small repairs may be necessary from time to time. Having a local manufacturer who is available for such a service is a big plus as opposed to importing this machinery from abroad. One simply cannot get the focused and knowledgeable service.
