Type of contaminants
Industrial manufacturing processes generate numerous contaminants which, if not treated with due caution, can be a risk hazard to the health of workers. It is possible to find:
- solid emissions, which consist of particulates (dusts), which are characterised by different sized particles (ranging from a sub-microscopic to visual level), which originate from the processing of solid materials, heat treatments, numerous mechanical processes and in the combustion of organic material;
- liquid emissions, which are identified as mists, which correspond to droplets dispersed inside air or gas flows, generated by condensation, distillation and oxidation;
- gaseous emissions, which correspond to the vapours, which are generated by the sublimation of solids, by boiling or evaporation of liquids.
