Holyoke, MA, July 15, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Newly revised OSHA standards for crystalline silica dust exposure are bringing about tighter worker health and safety requirements for the modern concrete and general industries. Under these standards, the amount of silica dust workers who work in closed facilities, factories and foundries are exposed to have been reduced in half, while sweeping and shoveling cleaning methods are being replaced by requirements to use industrial vacuum cleaners with HEPA filtration that will comply with OSHA’s new rules.
Ruwac USA's WS2320-HD is ideal for safely cleaning silica dust. It's a heavy duty intermittent duty vacuum that features 11 Hg” of negative vacuum pressure, 300 CFM, and is equipped with absolute HEPA filtration that is 99.997% efficient @ 0.3 microns, as well as 28 sq. ft. of MicroClean primary filtration. This filter combination nearly eliminates the possibility of premature clogging and costly filter changes while ensuring workers will not breathe in dangerous silica dust contaminants. The WS2320-HD vacuum’s modular housing is also fully grounded and sealed for dust-free operation, and made from a dent and rust-free compression cast composite housing that is guaranteed for life. With either a 9 gallon foot-actuated dustpan or direct bagging system, users have limited interaction with its contents and no messy spills to contend with upon disposal.
