R&B Industrial Ltd.’s expertise in vehicle exhaust extraction systems

R&B Industrial design, supply and install a wide range of vehicle exhaust extraction systems particularly with the Fire Service which ensure hazardous exhaust fumes are extracted at source. These products are suitable for many types and sizes of vehicles and trucks, with High and low level exhausts.

As a company we hold annual contracts with Hampshire, Dorset and Wiltshire County fire stations. This said, we cover a large area of the south of England. Dealing with LEV Testing, servicing and modifications to minimise risk from harmful substances.

Can we stop exhaust fumes being created in the workplace?

We all know that exhaust fumes are detrimental to the planet and to our health. However, they are unavoidable by-product of operating a combustion engine powered vehicle. Alternatives such as electric or even hydrogen powered vehicles are not viable for many businesses. This could be because the technology simply doesn’t exist, yet for certain applications or doesn’t meet the business requirements. Therefore, use of the combustion engines and subsequently production of harmful exhaust gases is currently unavoidable.

The most common engine type used in commercial and industrial applications is diesel. Diesel engines have recently been in the spotlight as it fumes are suggested to be more harmful to humans than its petrol counterpart. 

Diesel fumes are carcinogenic, so the correct type of vehicle exhaust extraction systems is essential for people exposed to diesel exhaust fumes.

Ranging from a diesel exhaust ‘bolt-on filter’ to various types of mechanically ventilated extract systems for specific vehicles and applications, our team have the skills to design, manufacture and install the vehicle exhaust extraction systems that suit your requirements.

Diesel fumes are a mixture of gases, vapours, liquid aerosols and substances containing the products of combustion including:

  • Carbon
  • Nitrogen
  • Water
  • Carbon monoxide
  • Aldehydes
  • Oxides of nitrogen
  • And more.

What can R & B industrial do to improve control of exhaust emissions in your workplace?

Chemicals and particulates mixed as exhaust fume can cause a nasty cocktail that at workplace level can affect human heath if not controlled effectively. That is where R & B Industrial can help. We specialise in offering the following vehicle exhaust extraction services:

Design and Install

We design and install bespoke exhaust extraction systems

Innovative exhaust solutions

We build in-house our own design of exhaust clip ends- this is an effective, simple, and more cost-effective solution than many alternatives. We can adjust our design to suit a huge range of different exhaust sizes, styles and exit locations

Supply and installation of exhaust extraction parts

We supply, install and service all types of exhaust extraction systems including Nederman and Plymovent. We also stock crush recoverable, high temperature hose in a range of different lengths and sizes

Testing and servicing of vehicle exhaust extraction systems

We have a team of experienced, trained, P601 qualified, LEV service and Test engineers that can test all types of exhaust extraction systems. Compiling a comprehensive report. Detailing system condition, pressure & air flow readings, as well as further recommendations. We test and service exhaust extraction systems for a number of the UK’s Fire authorities

Workplace Monitoring and vehicle exhaust emissions

We have a team of highly qualified and experienced occupational hygienists that can provide extensive monitoring for gasses and particulates. They can observe short- and long-term exposure levels arising from exhaust fume. This can be particularly helpful in assessing if vehicle exhaust extraction is needed or if the system currently installed is working effectively. Following lab analysis of the results a report providing findings and recommendation is produced.

The quantity and composition of diesel fumes in your workplace may vary depending on many factors such as:

  • The quality of diesel fuel used
  • The type of engine
  • The state of engine tuning
  • The fuel pump setting
  • Exposure to diesel fumes can impact your health; irritating your eyes and respiratory tract. However, a vehicle exhaust extraction system can help keep the air clear and minimise the risk to your health.
