Plastering & Drywall
Drywall sanding jobs can produce a great deal of fine dust around your work space that can not only be incredibly messy, but poses a health hazard to construction workers exposed to high concentrations of it and in some cases, respirable silica, from the drywall joint compound. This can lead to varying degrees of respiratory irritation with long term effects. When silica is present, workers face an increased risk of silicosis and lung cancer.
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.
Silica Dust Control - Your Resource for OSHA Compliance
To better control this deadly dust, OSHA has updated its crystalline silica exposure limit. Unsurprisingly, compliance with the new standard is considerably more difficult.
