||Dust exposure is high in the manual weighing and mixing stations of plastics converting industries. A polyvinyl chloride converting plant is used to illustrate feasible dust control measures. After describing existing conditions, two solutions are proposed. In the first case the existing equipment is used and manual handling of the equipment is maintained. An exhaust ventilation is applied that suppresses the dust at source. In the second case a new automated weighing and mixing technology with low dust emission is used. The exhaust ventilation is designed to draw off the remaining dust. Summaries in English and French.
