Until the efficacy of the tech can be shown effective, I would advise against it. I want to be sure I'm not creating a bigger problem that what I started with by putting particles airborne.

Hi All,
It has been recommended to us to use an air shower to remove hazardous nanoparticles from worker"s clothing as they exit the work area where the hazardous nanoparticles are used. This is different from the use of an air shower to remove dust and dirt from people"s clothing as they enter a clean room. I am interested in recommendations on the use of air showers to mitigate hazardous nanoparticles. Is it:
? Legal?
? Advisable?
? Cost effective?
Thank you.
