Overhead cleaning/removal of combustible dust
Over time, dust and debris from manufacturing operations collect on overhead pipes, ductwork, light fixtures, structural steel, ceiling plenums, etc. This dust builds up to the point where vibration shakes it loose, possibly contaminating product and production equipment, as well as contributing to poor indoor air quality.
This accumulation of dust and debris can pose a potentially hazardous condition — combustible dust, generated from products such as wood, metals, grains, chemicals, plastics, paper and certain textile materials. In some circumstances, these dusts can cause a deflagration, other fires, or an explosion.

STC consults with leading manufacturers of coatings to be certain that the appropriate coating system is selected, as well as reliable materials for the structure’s intended use and exposure conditions. Also, surface preparation is reviewed with coating manufacturers in order to establish a cleaning protocol prior to painting.
Our project managers work closely with each customer to understand their business and to establish a plan to accomplish the project with minimal disruption to the facility, its employees and work schedule. Plant equipment and machinery are fully protected during the cleaning/painting process. Those areas not included in the project will be isolated to protect against cross contamination.
