Mitigate Particulate Matter with Dust Collection
The phrase ‘particulate matter’, often shortened to just ‘PM’, includes a wide range of airborne particles. In the manufacturing world, PM is an umbrella term used to describe microscopic particles which are generated as a result of common manufacturing processes. There are two types of particulate matter: PM10, which are particles smaller than 10µm, and PM2.5, which are smaller than 2.5µm. The finer PM particles are small enough to actually be inhaled, making them an alarming health hazard.
