Grit from plasma cutting

New to the forum and plasma cutting in general. Currently my shop is mainly dedicated to machining and therefore I have precision machinery that I would like to protect. Using the water table, how much airborne material can I expect and is it abrasive like aluminum oxide? Obviously it will be job dependent, so maybe assume 100 cut inches in 1/4" mild steel.

Thanks in advance - D

I have been cutting with my pro table with Greencut treated water for about 10 months.
I have noticed a fine coating of black dust on everything…messy stuff…
if you are worried about your other equipment and you have the space…build a partial enclosure around your table and add a basic air filer to pull air from the table area back into the shop or better outside.

remember…you are burning metal…there is dust and the fumes can be powerful.

I’d suggest building screens or walls and ensure proper ventilation.
