    Wood dust is a combustible material and those operations generating or handling wood dust can require special mitigation efforts to minimize fire and explosion risks. Standards such as NFPA 664 can provide guidance for those who generate and handle these types of dusts. Some varieties of wood dust also have identified adverse health impacts. Examples include western red cedar as a designated sensitizer for asthma, and oak or beech dusts classified as Type 1A carcinogens. Capt-Air offers a wide selection of dust collectors and vacuum cleaners to maintain your shop clean and your workers healthy; from small wood shops to fiberboard plants and wood mills.
