VOC Filters for Consistently Clean Air

Individual Filtration Solutions to Remove VOCs

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) encompass a wide range of easily vaporizing chemical compounds, often originating from industrial processes like adhesive and solvent manufacturing. These compounds can also be released from road traffic and biological sources such as plants, soils, and seas. VOCs pose health risks, making them a significant focus for several years.

Due to increased awareness of potential dangers posed by VOCs, regulations have been formulated to protect human health and the environment. The European Directive (EU) 2016/2284 establishes limits for air pollutants in industrial plants. Reliable VOC control through gasphase filters ensures consistently clean air in the industry, helping to mitigate various risks.

The Invisible Threat – VOCs in the Workplace

Industrial workers often inhale various vapors, including VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), which are commonly detected by our sense of smell. VOCs are omnipresent indoors and usually harmless in low concentrations. However, health risks emerge when air concentrations of these substances become too high, and some VOCs are toxic even in small amounts. Immediate effects can be noticeable, but symptoms like headaches, fatigue, dizziness, or nausea may appear much later. Long-term exposure can lead to serious health issues, including respiratory diseases and potential loss of consciousness, with some VOCs being carcinogenic or neurotoxic.

Employers bear a significant responsibility for their employees and are obligated to protect them from hazards in the workplace. Therefore, with regard to occupational safety, it is essential to pay particular attention to the health risks associated with VOCs.


How to Avoid Risks from VOCs in Industry

The formation of VOCs cannot be avoided in many industries. Proper handling of VOCs is essential. The following practices contribute to protecting both personnel and industrial facilities:

  • Continuous monitoring of air quality
  • Deployment of ventilation and filtration systems
  • Training of employees
  • Compliance with legal regulations and limits
