With the release of OSHA’s final beryllium rule last year, foundries are expected to already be in compliance. Proper equipment ensures that beryllium exposure is limited to the required level, protecting foundry workers from long-term health problems. Industrial Vacuum offers two options for controlling beryllium dust in foundries as displayed in the infographic below.
Too much beryllium exposure can lead to Berylliosis, or chronic beryllium disease (CBD). This form of beryllium poisoning is a chronic lung disease with a mortality rate between 5-38%.
