Clothes Cleaning Systems Dust Removal and Decontamination Booth Equipment Provides Your Workers with a User-Friendly, 18-second Solution to Dusty Clothing

It’s Critical to Remove Dust from Workers and Their PPE

Research indicates that removal of dust from clothing is essential to reducing employees‘ exposure to harmful dust. In many industries, respirable dust has been responsible for cancers, respiratory and skin diseases and beyond. Even after leaving the dusty environment, contaminated clothing continues to release dust into the air that migrates to workers’ vehicles and homes, putting families at risk.

Dusty clothing has historically been cleaned by using HEPA vacuums, a very ineffective, tedious process requiring two people and as much as 10-20 minutes of on-the-clock personnel time. NIOSH and SK Bowling’s Clothes Cleaning Systems (CCS) division teamed up to develop the clothes cleaning booth technology that is now known as the Tempest WindDraft equipment. The low-pressure, compressed air system provides risk managers and health and safety directors a cost-effective, healthy, user-friendly alternative to outdated methods of personal dust removal.

Tempest WindDraft Dust & Decontamination Booth Equipment can be retrofitted into your facility or used as a stand-alone, self-contained employee cleaning system

Incorporating a clothes cleaning booth into your operation is a simple and easily customizable process. A stand-alone Tempest WindDraft I unit with one door is a simple in-and-out for job sites with lower volumes of workers changing shifts. In 18 seconds or less, your personnel and their PPE are dust-free and bound for home.

The Tempest WindDraft II 2-door booth can be installed in walls as a pass-through portal where workers can go from a dirty area to a clean one in just seconds.

Both models can be mounted in a trailer for mobile applications, so you can take your cleaning system right to the jobsite.

That “Booth Thingamajig Over There”

As the first of its kind, developed by NIOSH engineer Andy Cecala, and industrialized by CCS, it’s amazing how we and our clients have found it fairly difficult to find a simple, meaningful term for the dust removal booth system. You’d think getting the patents approved would be the hard part. We’ve heard and called the equipment just about everything along the way: clothes cleaning booths, clothes cleaning systems, decontamination booths, dust de-contamination Booths, NIOSH booths, air showers, compressed air showers, hygiene booths, and some folks have even called them "soot suckers". “Personal clothes cleaning machine” brings visions of Maytag-style washing machines.

Our many satisfied US and international clients are helping us get the brand name and terminology out there — Tempest WindDraft dust and decontamination equipment — so companies can easily identify the only NIOSH tested personnel dust removal system available.
