Sanding, Finishing, & Buffing

Workshop sanding, finishing, buffing and polishing produces fine dust particles that are released into your breathing radius and pose a threat to your workspace if proper precautions are neglected.


AER Control Systems offers several means to controlling heavy to moderate levels of dust, smoke, fume, and gas/vapor contaminants that can be generated during your manufacturing processes.

  • Keep your workplace safe from the potential dangers that unsafe levels of dust contaminants can cause.
  • Some applications are specially designed to mitigate and cost-effectively control all flammable and non-flammable metal dust contaminants.
  • Remain compliant with OSHA standards by filtering contaminants away from the operator’s breathing zone, reducing emissions, and curbing flammability concerns with metals such as aluminum and titanium.

Sanding, Finishing, & Buffing Health Dangers

As such, exposure to particles and chemicals can result in a number of health issues such as:

  • Respiratory Issues
  • Nervous System Damage
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Cancer
  • Eye,Throat, or Nose Irritation

Precautions & Solutions

  • You should implement proper safety precautions for your workspace to minimize your worker’s risk potential.
