The study evaluated airborne dust emission (0.1–10 µm) during the routing operation of Rubberwood (Hevea brasiliensis) in the furniture industry in South East Asia. It was found that the average chip thickness of 0.1 mm and wood moisture content of 12–14% minimized dust emission, while the cutting tool rake angle had little influence on dust emission. The(More)
A study of the factors that influence dust-generation during the sanding process of Malaysian hardwoods was undertaken. It was found that the amount of wood removed during the sanding process predetermined dust-generation, although the wood density and abrasive grit used also played a role. Consequently, low density wood species produced higher(More)
The study evaluated the concentration and particle size distribution of air-borne wood dust in the Rubberwood furniture manufacturing industry. Air quality samples were measured at routing and hand-sanding work stations in furniture factories using the micro-orifice uniform deposit impactor (MOUDI) air-quality measuring instrument. It was found that less(More)
