Silica is one of the worlds most abundant resources and constitutes more than 95 percent of known rocks. Materials like concrete, mortar, tiles and paving blocks all contain crystalline silica. It is used in glass, pottery, ceramics and many other applications. Creating these products as well as cutting them involves processes that emit a significant amount of silica dust. Silica dust exposure has serious health consequences such as silicosis, lung cancer and COPD.
Recently the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) enacted more stringent regulations pertaining to exposure to silica dust. Industries affected by the regulations include manufactures of ceramics, companies using sand for abrasive blasting, maritime industry, and foundries. Implementing respirators, dustcontrol equipment and facility maintenance are important actions to implement in order to comply with regulations of 50 milligrams per cubic meter.
Clean Air Company provides industrial ventilation design solutions for companies complying with OSHA regulations and protecting employees from exposure. Dust control booths, customized hood design, down draft tables and high vacuum systems are some of the products common to the industry.
Without proper ventilation, dust buildup poses serious health risks to your workers and liability concerns to management.. Clean Air Company can help remove the dust from the air and ensure that there is clean air circulating in your factory at all times with the help of silica dust collection solutions such as bag house, cartridge collectors, high vac collectors, and portable collectors
