Breakfast briefings promote pure air breathing

Breakfast briefings promote pure air breathing

Thursday 22nd May 2014

Many industrial operations require personnel to use compressed air for breathing. Applications include tank cleaning, spray painting, asbestos removal, shotblasting, tunnelling, welding and demolition. However, in compressed air-fed breathing systems, ambient air is drawn into the compressor which then mixes any contaminants from this ambient air with those introduced by the compressor itself, unless removed by a purification system.

Thorite, the UK's biggest independent distributor of pneumatic products and process systems, has unparalleled expertise in providing the best methods of removing hazardous substances from air breathing systems. The company recently held a series of specialised staff training sessions, aimed at enabling them to provide tailored solutions for the removal of breathing dangers inherent in a wide range of operating environments, for major users of breathable compressed air.

The breakfast briefings were held at four of Thorite's regional Sales & Service Centres and focused on the Parker Domnick Hunter portfolio of breathing air purifiers, a range of both portable and static equipment which is designed to remove a huge variety of air contaminants. These include: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, water & oil vapour, micro-organisms, atmospheric dirt, water aerosols, condensed liquid water, liquid oil, oil aerosols, rust and pipescale.

The Thorite Centres which ran the breakfast briefings are located in Bradford, Bolton, North Shields and Brierley Hill in the West Midlands. Any customer with a pressing need to discuss breathing air problems now should contact Thorite and speak to their local trained staff member, or call the Technical Department on freephone 0800 034 5850.
