Like other types of industrial production using wood, grain, or chemicals, metal workshops can produce high levels of dust fumes and particles. Metal fumes can come from cutting and melting the materials used, including surface coatings or pre-existing contaminants. Depending on the particular materials in question, the fumes that develop can sometimes be quite dangerous to those exposed. Plasma dust collectors for Western Australia might sometimes be needed to keep the air clean and industrial by-products under control.
Like other types of dust, that from metalworking—even particles fine enough to be similar to gases—can pose some risk of combustion. Mainly, though, it poses health risks from inhalation. Fumes can potentially cause irritation and other respiratory problems. In some cases, especially with chrome and some other chemicals, the substances found in these types of dust are thought to be neurotoxins or carcinogens. For this reason, the fumes from industrial metalworking such as plasma cutting are sometimes controlled and regulated.
