Advantages of a SonicAire Fan System

Combustible Dust Solutions

SonicAire combustible dust fans provide safety, economic and regulatory compliance solutions to facilities that generate fugitive dust and lint, including wood products and furniture manufacturing; paper making, paper products production and recycling; plastics processing, finishing and recycling; textiles and nonwoven fabrics production; laundry facilities; food and grain processing; and multiple other industries.

Reduce Overhead Dust Accumulation

Using SonicAire’s proprietary fan technology can robotically reduce fugitive dust accumulation in the first place.

How it works: High velocity, high mass airflow from a robotic clean fan creates an overhead barrier. 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, preventing the accumulation of fugitive dust in overhead and hard-to-reach places. The result? Dust is prevented from accumulating in overhead areas.

Improve Plant Safety

SonicAire fans avoid the need for high-risk manual cleaning efforts. Combustible dust fans reduce or eliminate having employees climb into hard-to-reach overhead areas.

Comply with Safety and Health Regulations

This proactive solution helps maintain a clean work environment in compliance with OSHA and NFPA regulations. NFPA 652 identifies SonicAire’s proven technology as an approved housekeeping system to prevent dust accumulation.

Maximize Productivity

Dust control fans keep employees focused on production while dust is prevented from accumulating in overhead areas. The investment in SonicAire fans pays off by allowing you to reduce your manual housekeeping expense budget, reduce operational downtime required for overhead cleaning and potentially reduce insurance rates.
