Silica Dust Control Experts

Silica Dust is Hazardous to your Health
Silica dust is a major concern in the construction industry. There is risk of inhaling silica dust when the following activities are performed: Concrete grinding, Drilling, Stabbing, Demolition, Transporting and mixing cement, Brick or stone cutting, paving or surfacing. Inhaling silica dust can lead to silicosis which is a lung disease that can cause premature death.

How Using Hepa Air Scrubbers Can Help Control Silica Dust
There are several ways available to control silica dust including on-tool extraction, respiratory protection, water suppression and isolation. However, sometimes the above methods may not be enough to contain the dust.

  • We can assist by providing rental and sales of our portable air scrubbers. Our air scrubbers can assist in controlling any silica dust which may not be contained with the above methods. It provides peace of mind knowing it helps provide legal compliance and workplace safety.

  • There are also many situations where contraction dust may be created in indoor environments without adequate containment and filtration of the air. This can lead to silica deposits on furniture, walls, chairs and other surfaces. It can be a very costly exercise to clean silica dust in commercial environments. In this situation, containment of the dust should be used with hepa air scrubbing an negative air to help reduce cross contamination.

Equipment Used and Available for Hire or Purchase

Dust Extractor Vacuum

HEPA Air Scrubber

Features:

  • Efficient filtration system – The three separate filtering stages result in longer working time between filter cleaning. The dust is filtered through a cyclone chamber, which separate the heaviest parts, up to 95% of the dust, before the washable main filter. The HEPA micro filters are individual tested and certified to capture 99.99% of the remaining silica dust in the respirable fraction 0.3 µm

  • Easy and efficient filter cleaning – The Jet Pulse filter cleaning system ensures high continuous airflow thanks to easy and efficient cleaning of the conical main filter without opening the machine

  • Durable design – Corrosion-resistant steel clamps, welded frame with dust bag platform and durable steel handle make it ready to serve for many years

  • Easy to transport – The welded frame enables easy transportation by resting the machine on the frame

  • High Efficiency Particulate Air filter – Individually tested and certified HEPA micro filters catching 99.99% of the remaining silica dust in the respirable fraction (0.3 µm)

  • Clean and simple bag change – The Longopac bag hose system ensures simple changes of the bag without any dust spills

  • Easy-to-read airflow monitoring – Alerts you when the filter needs to be cleaned or changed

  • For demanding industrial applications – For demanding industrial applications, where high suction and flow are required to eliminate airborne dust

Features:

  • A large filter area in combination with pre-separation give long operation time with high efficiency. A pre-filter made of pleated polyester catches the larger dust fractions before the air enters the individually tested HEPA H13 filter ensuring 99.99% efficiency at 0.3 microns

  • Lightweight cabinet with sturdy aluminium frame and metal locking casters. A metal mesh protects the filter area

  • The HEPA filter is protected by a metal mesh which makes it easy to vacuum it without damaging it

  • The yellow light warns of a clogged filter, the red light warns of filter leaks
