IGS ClearStream is an advanced industrial hexavalent chromium filter (hex chrome) engineered specifically for HVTS® (High-Velocity Thermal Spray) applications. It prevents hex chrome exposure and achieves an occupational exposure limit of less than 1 μg / m^3. Our patented technology ensures the highest standards of safety, compliance, and efficiency in your workspace.
ClearStream is a hexavalent chromium filter system that captures harmful particles, including ultrafine chromium-6 fumes, to create a cleaner and safer working environment.
We exceed the strictest occupational exposure limit standards achieving occupational exposure limits of 1 μg / m^3, providing peace of mind for your business and employees.
ClearStream’s design ensures uninterrupted HVTS® application, ensuring a productive workflow without disruptions.
Engineered specifically for HVTS®, our HEPA filter delivers optimal performance for High Velocity Thermal Spray cladding applications.
ClearStream offers superior performance at a fraction of the cost of an equivalent alternative, making it a cost-effective choice.
Our trained specialists ensure correct installation and efficient operation of your ClearStream HEPA filtration system.
According to OSHA, hexavalent chromium is one of the valence states (+6) of the element chromium. It is often produced in industrial processes and added to alloy steel to increase hardenability and corrosion resistance. However, it is known to cause cancer and other issues associated with the respiratory system, kidneys, liver, skin and eyes.
Welding and thermal spraying high chrome alloys produces very small particulate, smaller than one micron in diameter and uniform in size, making collection a challenge. NIOSH considers all hex chrome compounds to be occupational carcinogens.
OSHA sets the standard for allowable hex chrome levels, with the current permissible exposure limit (PEL) of 5 μg/m3 time-weighted average (TWA) in an 8-hour shift. Some energy companies require 1 μg / m^3. IGS has engineered and patented ClearStream HEPA Filtration System that meets current and future occupational exposure limits and ensures uniterrupted HVTS® application.
