Industrial screeners are used in factories and other workplaces to protect workers from hazardous materials. They use a variety of sensors to detect dangerous particles in the air and on surfaces. They can then warn workers if they are in danger of exposure to hazardous materials. Screeners are an important safety tool, and they should be kept clean to ensure their effectiveness. The machines can be divided into two types – contact and non-contact. Contact screens use a metal plate that touches the material being screened. Non-contact screens use a series of sensors that detect the presence of material. Each type of machine has its own set of risks and benefits.
Injuries from screeners come from the equipment not functioning properly. If a screener does not detect hazardous or dangerous materials, then workers, products, and other processing machines that incorporate the toxins may become exposed which can lead to injuries.
