Exeon were asked to provide an extraction system to replace the existing on varnish fume extract process from a canning plant.
The existing Extraction had just been installed but was insufficient and operators were having to wear masks to prevent Asthma and other breathing difficulties.
An extraction system was installed with changed design of hoods and better extract rates and a vast improvement was noticed immediately.
During the survey it was identified that with the extract working sufficiently, the fumes could cause environmental issues with the housing directly behind the factory.
As a result an Odour reduction system was installed with the Extraction system to provide an external odour level which was acceptable for the EA.
