Even though it looks like OSHA won't pass a combustible dust standard during this administration, taking action against combustible dust can't wait. SonicAire is here to help- your safety is our priority.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration isn't likely to push forward on a comprehensive combustible dust standard this year due to the complexity of the hazard and an already robust regulatory agenda, emergency response and industrial observers tell BBNA.

General information

The core of every SonicAire fan is its BarrierAire technology, our unique engineering platform. This technology uses dynamic air patterns to block fugitive dust buildup. Here’s how it works. High velocity and high mass airflow from a robotic clean fan create an overhead barrier. This barrier essentially controls dust like an air curtain, preventing accumulation of fugitive dust on steel structures, pipes, ducts, walls, and process equipment. The outcome is that you can automatically maintain OSHA compliance throughout your plant – at all times. Only with BarrierAire technology can you achieve and maintain the highest levels of clean for your overhead structures. BarrierAire technology controls the direction of the dust and forces it to the floor by preventing upward currents and stagnant air that keeps dust in suspension. With BarrierAire technology no new dust is ever allowed to accumulate overhead again. Only with BarrierAire technology can you automatically maintain OSHA compliance throughout the plant at all times. Your employees have never been safer from the risks of combustible dust. Our clients appreciate that they no longer have to pay for expensive cleaning services. They also don’t have to shut down production to allow the cleaning services to work. Even more important is that they also don’t have to put personnel at risk using scissor lifts to reach the overhead areas.
