Railway Equipment Industry and Dust Collection
Introduction to Dust and Fume Collection for Railway Equipment
As the economy slowly improves—and as economic forecasts remain positive—trends in the railway equipment industry look good. Demand for rail transport is growing, as large portions of both imports and exports travel over rail. Recent investments in rail infrastructure will help drive demand, as well. As freight miles increase, shippers will require new railway equipment, including locomotives, rail cars, and associated equipment.
During this period of growth, manufacturers of railway equipment will need to be mindful of changes in regulations regarding dust and weld fumes in their facilities. Some of these changes have been significant, and the need to comply with them is both legally and financially serious. Plus, the need to maintain a safe and pleasant work environment is as important as ever.
