Healthy Work Environment

Healthy Work Environment

There is nothing more important than being able to work in a healthy environment with clean air. According to the World Health Organization, air pollution has been linked to a range of negative health effects, such as cardiovascular and lung diseases. Indoor exposure to ultra-fine particles is a serious long-term health risk. Therefore, it is essential to address air pollution particulate matter in a professional manner to create a healthy work environment without harmful solid particles in the air and a the same time complying with the HVAC air filter standards.


A healthy work environment requires eliminating: 

  1. Fine particulate matter  (or fine dust) (PM10 range)
  2. Ultra-fine particulate matter (UFPs or nanoparticles) (<PM0.1 range)
  3. Fumes, odors, and aerosols

If you ask individual employees at JOA, you will find that it is our common passion to apply air innovations for a better quality of life and work. Hence, our teams look forward to supporting you in building or upgrading your factory or product lines with innovative fine dust reduction systems.

How do we guarantee the best solution to create a healthy work environment?

JOA has installed 450 systems around the globe, and we have learned how to perfect our extraction systems. As a result, our models predict the best possible solution for your situation. Consequently, we ensure results that work from the get-go at economically attractive rates. Every project starts with on-site data collection and analysis. Data are derived by personal sampling and combined with an emission measurement program. We measure to make sure we comply with the HVAC balancing standards.

An economical solution that works from the get-go

We predict the effectiveness of our extraction systems by history-matching the collected data in the GCM model. If necessary, HVAC dilution jets provide a way of handling critical personal exposure in addition to eliminating the source. This way, we can generate an optimal technical solution for the most economical scenario. Analyzing the type of dust or fumes produced determines the maximum applicable exposure norm. In other words, we look at the behavior of particulate matter to engineer the system and select the best filter technology including, if required, acoustic agglomeration for eliminating UFPs. Making sure to comply with the HVAC standards.

Acoustic agglomeration is the first module in the market to agglomerate ultra-fine dust and filter it with standard filter units. 
Tony Roepman, Chief engineer JOA

Integrated solution that protect the workers, with an eye to economics

A well-designed system or system upgrade guarantees protection of workers' personal health. Critical emission points need to be addressed by effective (98+%) source elimination in combination with HVAC dilution, applying induction cool jets. The extracted and/or recirculated air must be filtered adequately.
