Pulp and paper mills traditionally produce significant amounts of dust as well combustible dust particles. Paper mills can greatly reduce the risk of fire and health hazards by implementing good housekeeping practices. Many customers in the paper and pulp industry have been reporting increased OSHA attention to housekeeping practices. Regular maintenance and housekeeping can also reduce the risk of combustible dust. Some paper and pulp facilities, especially those that process chemically treated paper, may be required to use an explosion proof vacuum cleaner.
The paper and pulp industry also utilizes large amounts of water in the paper making process. Industrial vacuums may also be needed to recover water or other material in the manufacturing facility.
