While most plastic materials are generally considered harmless when cured, various hazardous materials can be released during their production and processing. Manual or mechanical processing, e.g. grinding, cutting or drilling, or conditioning, coating and printing during final production, can create undesired decomposition products and hazardous materials. Dusts, vapours and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are often released and need to be extracted and safely separated before they spread around the production hall and are deposited on the machines. Workers' health may be put at risk when they inhale these hazardous materials, because they harm their organs and respiratory tract.
How extraction systems are deployed in the plastics industry
Extraction and filtering systems for the plastics and rubber processing industry make it possible to meet environmental regulations and workplace exposure limits and to create an energy-efficient and clean work environment. In addition to ensuring the purity and quality of the raw materials and final products, they are an important contribution to occupational safety and health protection.
NOVUS offers special systems across a broad range of capacities for extraction in the plastics industry. NOVUS generally recommends systems which extract and filter hazardous substances directly at the source of their emission. We distinguish between mobile and stationary systems. These systems offer perfect employee protection in combination with production hall air extraction. NOVUS devices are available both as explosion-proof and as non-ex versions.

The NOVUS Smart VOC line provides an easy and economic plug-and-play solution for highly efficient VOC removal using little energy.
Successfully fighting odours and gases
The Airtower O is our plug-and-play device when it comes to extracting gaseous emissions and especially odours. Read more about its construction and functioning on the product page.
Modular fine dust extraction
the Air-M-Line is part of the Air-Line family and has been developed with a focus on a modular design and the efficient extraction of fine and ultrafine dusts. Read more about its construction and functioning on the product page.
NOVUS offers a comprehensive product portfolio ranging from plug & play devices to customer-specific centralised or decentralised extraction systems, from best selling line to custom units and attachments.
For stationary piping systems
This variant is suitable for localised extraction of contaminated air from up to 16 welding workstations. Advantages include energy-efficient recirculated air mode in winter and the low cost and effort of installation. Read more about its construction and functioning on the product page.
Fibre dust extraction
The Air-D-Line is part of the Air-Line family and has been specially developed for the decentralised extraction of fibre dusts. Read more about its construction and functioning on the product page.
In plastics and rubber processing, the type and size of an extraction unit are chosen depending on the nature and amount of the material to be extracted, and considering additional requirements.
