Consulting and design

Experts in airflow, consulting and area management

In industrial settings, ensuring a safe and healthy work environment is paramount, particularly when dealing with dust and fumes generated in various processes. Designing an effective dust and fume extraction system requires a deep understanding of the specific needs of a business, adherence to Australian standards and consideration of future growth. Employing the services of an expert consultant in this field can prove to be invaluable, providing a customised solution that prioritizes worker safety, regulatory compliance and operational efficiency.

The Crucial Role of Expert Consultants in Designing Dust and Fume Extraction Systems

In Australia, several standards govern the design, installation and operation of dust extraction systems to ensure workplace safety and environmental compliance. Micronair’s experts are here to help provide advice on:

Understanding Australian Standards

Australia has stringent regulations and standards governing workplace safety and environmental protection, including those related to dust and fume extraction systems. Micronair’s consultants bring in-depth knowledge of these standards, ensuring that the designed system aligns seamlessly with Australian regulations. This specific industry knowledge is crucial in avoiding legal complications, fines and most importantly, in safeguarding the health and well-being of employees.

Customised For Your Business

Each industrial facility is unique in terms of its processes, layout and operations. A one-size-fits-all approach to dust and fume extraction is inadequate and may lead to inefficiencies. An expert consultant conducts a thorough assessment of the business, taking into account the type and volume of pollutants produced, the nature of the processes involved and the layout of the facility. This personalised approach ensures that the extraction system is tailored to address the specific challenges of the business, optimising its effectiveness.

Consideration for Available Space

Space constraints are a common challenge in industrial settings and designing an extraction system that maximizes available space without compromising efficiency is an art. Expert consultants possess the skills to analyze space limitations and develop innovative solutions. This includes the strategic placement of extraction equipment, designing compact ducting systems and integrating extraction technology seamlessly into existing infrastructure. The result is a system that not only meets regulatory requirements but also minimizes disruptions to the workflow.

Optimised Ducting Systems

Ducting is a critical component of any dust and fume extraction system. The design and layout of ducting impact the efficiency of pollutant capture and the overall performance of the system. Expert consultants leverage their experience to design ducting systems that minimize pressure drops, optimize airflow and reduce energy consumption. Additionally they consider factors such as material compatibility, ease of maintenance and the potential for expansion or modification in the future.


A well-designed dust and fume extraction system should not only meet current needs but also accommodate future business growth. Expert consultants conduct a thorough analysis of the business’s growth projections and design systems that can be easily expanded or modified to adapt to changing requirements. This forward-thinking approach not only saves costs in the long run but also ensures that the extraction system remains effective as your business evolves.


While the primary goal of a dust and fume extraction system is to ensure a safe working environment, operational efficiency and cost-effectiveness are also critical considerations. Expert consultants leverage their knowledge to design systems that strike a balance between performance and cost. This includes selecting energy-efficient equipment, optimizing airflow patterns and incorporating features that reduce maintenance requirements, ultimately contributing to long-term cost savings.

Working with a Micronair expert consultant for the design of a dust and fume extraction system is a strategic decision that pays dividends in terms of worker safety, regulatory compliance and operational efficiency. The Australian industrial landscape demands meticulous adherence to standards, and consultants bring the specialized knowledge required to navigate these complexities. By considering factors such as space limitations, ducting design, future business growth and compliance with Australian standards, expert consultants provide businesses with tailored solutions that not only meet current needs but also position them for success in the long run. As businesses continue to prioritize the well-being of their workforce and environmental sustainability, the role of expert consultants in designing dust and fume extraction systems becomes increasingly indispensable.
