What we do

In 2004 Stuart saw a demand for direct “at source” extraction and hence AtSource was born. He knows when ordinary ventilation is sufficient and when extraction is needed at the source. Nobody likes wearing masks, they’re hot, they’re stifling, they give workers a rash, there are now better ways! The flexibility of Nederman products and solutions mean they can easily be placed just wherever they’re needed. Direct at-source extraction of dust and fumes at the point of emission is a widely recognised and best method of eliminating airborne contaminants from the workplace.

Markets

    Dust collection

    We are the ‘SAFE’ choice for dust collection, we have THE LARGEST range of dust collectors, specialising in combustible dusts and proper, engineered solutions.

    • Industry and sector standards compliant ATEX certified and NFPA compliant
    • Proper engineered solution
    • International reputation, wide range of dust collector products and high quality.

    Welding fume extraction

    The particles in welding fume are small enough to be suspended in the air for a long time. They can be inhaled and penetrate into the innermost area of the lungs. Over time, the particles can even reach the bloodstream. Fume from MMA and FCAW welding usually contains significant quantities of hexavalent chromium Cr(VI). This is important to observe because hexavalent chromium Cr(VI) has a very low exposure limit. There are also risks due to the presence of manganese, nickel and other elements.

    Soldering fume extraction

    ‘Working with rosin-based solder fluxes requires you to take action. You should take appropriate steps to pre-vent, control or reduce exposure to fumes, as they can cause serious health problems, including occupational asthma or other serious illness with symptoms of cough-ing, wheezing, runny eyes or nose, tight chest, etc’ – cited from HSE Solder fume health and safety guide

    Lab exhaust extraction

    Effective local exhaust ventilation system can carry away airborne contaminants before they can be breathed in to protect personnel health and safety.

    Vehicle exhaust extraction

    Vehicle exhaust fumes can irritate the eyes and respiratory tract, and are a risk to health by breathing in. Carbon-fuelled engine fumes contain carbon monoxide, a poisonous gas. Pro-longed exposure to diesel fumes, especially blue or black smoke, may lead to coughing and breathlessness. Long-term repeated exposure to diesel fumes over a period of about 20 years may increase the risk of lung cancer.

    Fire engine exhaust extraction

    Fire men and women protect communities and they should be protected well in term of diesel engine exhaust exposure. A lot of reports out-line harm of long term diesel engine exhaust exposure.

    Dentistry aerosol extraction

    We provide mist or aerosol extraction from dental processes.

    Transmission of infection or disease during aerosol generating processes such as high speed drilling has been an increasing concern to the dental profession. The reason is the risk of direct contact with saliva or blood, contact with contaminated instruments or surfaces that have been improperly sterilized, or respiratory fluids that may become aerosols during operative dentistry.
