Atsource engineered vehicle exhaust extraction systems are not just for cars.
The Ports of Auckland Container Carriers are serviced inside a 14m high workshop onsite.
Each container carrier emits diesel fumes from a high-level engine.
Additional diesel fumes can be emitted from an Elevated Work Platform (EWP) that moves underneath the Container Carrier during service.
In accordance with health and safety standards, Ports of Auckland were aware that diesel fumes are a human carcinogen. In commissioning this system design and installation they were proactive in providing a safer and healthier work environment.
There can be, potentially 12 points of diesel fume emission; 6 x Container Carriers, and 6 x EWPs.
A fume extraction system that is capable of direct connection to the tailpipe of each machine was required, to ensure that vehicle fume emissions were totally eliminated from the workshop.
