The processing and handling of raw materials can be a dirty and time-consuming process. The Vactagon lines of industrial vacuums have been utilized in some of the toughest conditions imaginable. Vactagon vacuums can come equipped with an optional HEPA filter, which can be a great way to meet or exceed OSHA’s tough standards. For most facilities that handle sand, such as foundries and fracking operations, a HEPA foundry vacuum is a critical piece of equipment to keep a facility safe and in compliance. HEPA vacuums for foundry operations protect workers and equipment by trapping 99.97% of all airborne particles larger than 0.3 microns.
Optional HEPA filter is compliant to OSHA’s silica dust standards
*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.
