Construction sites continuously produce dusts and debris. Demolitions, excavations, stripping, perforations, grinding and shattering of inert substances, cement mixer loading with materials coming from sacks and silos, demolition of concrete structures with pneumatic hammers: these are just a few examples of operations that generate a great quantity of dust.
Dusts resulting from construction can be really dangerous, especially those containing silica. That kind of dust can be produced during operations like drilling and shredding granite, sandstone, abrasive sand, etc.
Vactagon filtered vacuums can be your solution.
*The utilization of an inline drum filler or Cyclone separator may be suggested depending on the application the vacuum will be used in. Please contact us for further details or if you have any questions.
To better control this deadly dust, OSHA has updated its crystalline silica exposure limit. Unsurprisingly, compliance with the new standard is considerably more difficult.
