    Take a look inside an industrial dust collector as one of our technicians dawns his PPE and crawls inside the vessel to thoroughly clean the equipment.

    Our technician uses a flexible vacuum hose to carefully remove significant amounts of silica (quartz) dust from a large dust collector system. The system consists of hundreds of feet of ductwork, measuring as wide as 8 feet in some places. The extensive ductwork cleaning project was for a company that produces high-purity quartz products for the semiconductor, lighting, and electronics industries

    The dust, which accumulates from cutting, grinding, and drilling, contains crystalline silica particulates which are classified as a human lung carcinogen. It was critically important for our crew to be properly outfitted with Tyvek coveralls, gloves, and full-face respirators. Additionally, as this involved confined space, we monitored the environment with gas meters.

    Maintain Your Industrial and Commercial Dust Collectors with Service-Tech

    As always, we strictly adhered to OHSA (Occupational Health and Safety Administration) protocols throughout the project. According to OSHA, Silica exposure remains a serious threat to nearly 2 million U.S. workers. It is critically important for companies dealing with hazardous dust particulates to maintain a strict annual air duct cleaning and other equipment cleanings to protect their employees.
