MECHON is the leading design consultancy for high quality dust extraction and filtration systems within the UK. What makes MECHON unique is our ability to design systems across a variety of industries, from high-tech sectors such as aerospace, pharmaceutical and defence, to more the traditional industries such as woodworking, mining and steelmaking. Systems are designed to reduce or remove all risks such as explosive atmospheres (Atex, DSEAR), internal exposure (COSHH Regulations), and environmental Pollution (Pollution Prevention and Control Act, IPPC).

Ducted Dust Extraction Systems

Localised extraction through purpose designed hoods, all connected on a common ducted system and generally filtered using a baghouse filter or similar dust collector.
Woodworking – Extraction from hoods on saws, routers and sanders.   Metalworking – Extraction from hoods on saws, grinders and linishers.   Waste Recycling – Dust control on feed hoppers, shredders, classifiers, dryers, trommels, separators, screens, mechanical conveyors, baling presses and compactors.   Aggregates & Minerals – Extraction of dusts from crushers, trommels, brick makers, vehicle loaders and Mechanical conveyors.
Environmental Control Booths
Removal of dusts from multiple sources or over an area requiring extensive operator movement. Ideal for processes where finishing work is required on large objects or where weighing and mixing is to be undertaken between stations
Pharmaceuticals – Drug weighing, laminar downflow booths.    Automotive – Body repair shops.    Ship/Boat Building – Hull manufacture and repair.    Aerospace – Metal and composites grinding and cutting.   Food – Sack tipping, powder mixing and powder weighing.Waste Recycling – Sorting bays.

On Tool Dust Extraction

Extraction of dusts from hand-held power tools using high vacuum. All hoods are connected to a self-cleaning, reverse jet filter unit, using high pressure pipework systems.
Automotive – Grinding and sanding of body parts. Shipbuilding – Grinding and sanding of hulls. Aerospace & Defence Components manufacture – grinding and cutting. Construction – Cutting and routing of concrete and brick.

Downdraft Bench Dust Extraction

Removal of dusts from multiple sources or over an area requiring extensive operator movement. Ideal for processes where finishing work is required on large objects or where weighing and mixing is to be undertaken between stations
Automotive, Aerospace and other metalworking industries – Grinding, fettling and sanding of components.

Silo Venting Dust Extraction

Removal and filtration of displaced dust-laden air form larger storage containers and end of pneumatic conveying lines.
Food & Beverages – Pneumatic conveying, feed hoppers and storage silos.   Aggregates & Mining – Storage Silos.   Plastics and Polymers – Receiver bins, silo and vehicle loading hoppers.
