Diesel exhaust is produced from the mixture of particulates and gasses that develop during the combustion of diesel fuel. Diesel Particulate Matter (DPM) consists of very small particles that are primarily made up of solid elemental carbon. When DPM is combined with organic carbon (OC), it clings to surrounding surfaces creating health risks when introduced to the breathing zones of industry professionals.
In just minutes, diesel exhaust can generate and become inhaled. Diesel-powered vehicles range from passenger cars to heavy trucks with large vertical tailpipe stacks, and more. Because these types of vehicles burn diesel fuel, they transmit diesel exhaust which is made up of more than 40 toxic air contaminants! Diesel vehicle repair and maintenance facilities are required to implement exhaust extraction systems to combat health hazards and establish clean air working environments.
There are 3 main elements to all diesel exhaust removal systems: exhaust hose, pulleys or cable balancers, and fan. Any diesel exhaust removal system can be modified to fit the demands of an application or facility - however, the hose, pulleys or cable balancer, and fan will always be present
