Working Under Pressure

Systems Labellings latest installation at the Deeside plant is a bespoke pressurised airflow system.

The tailored equipment consists of four large fans with substantial ducting and special filters that extract dust particles as small as 3 microns.

The system pulls air into the production area at a rate calculated to be10% higher than the total extraction. This ensures that when doors and windows are opened air is pushed out of the building rather than sucked in along with dust that may find its way onto printed labels.

At a significant cost this is the latest example of Systems Labellings attitude to quality control and providing a more comfortable working environment for its skilled workforce.  

Airflow Groups, Stephen Frost commented "Systems Labelling are a unique business. Having supplied air control systems for many years this installation did provide us with a challenge. However by working closely with the in-house engineers we were able to develop a robust solution.

Engineering Manager Vernon Pearce adds We are very pleased with the result, and although a tricky installation we were able to work around the 24/7 production area without interruption.
