Q: Will air showers affect the accuracy of printing equipment?
A: No. Air showers produce strong air currents but don't mechanically impact the equipment itself. In fact, blowing away surface dust helps maintain printing accuracy.
Q: How often should air showers be maintained?
A: Generally, deep cleanings and core component maintenance every 6-12 months based on usage frequency ensures optimal air shower performance and lifespan.
Q: Can air showers cause employee discomfort?
A: Yes, if airflow is too strong. Providing protective eyewear and adjusting air gates to comfortable levels can prevent irritation. Regular interior cleaning also reduces irritating dust.
Q: How many air showers are ideal for a printing facility?
A: It depends on the facility size, employee count, and production workflow. Typically one unit per critical entryway, plus additional units placed strategically based on layout to protect all important zones. Exact numbers should be determined case-by-case.
Q: What other safety considerations are there for air showers?
A: Clear warning signs should prevent employees from accidentally entering operating air showers. Non-slip flooring prevents slips from strong air currents. Outlets should be at least 2 meters above floors for proper air diffusion. Sufficient spacing between entries and exits prevents airflow interference.
