Dust extraction systems should be used in conjunction with woodworking and concrete tools during any and all applications.
Bosch offers a complete dust-extraction system that complies with OSHA requirements. This includes has a full line of grinders and cut-off saws, hammers and hammer drills, routers and router tables, jig saws and circular saws, miter saws and table saws, and sanders and planers.
Dust extractors should be a sealed system that filters 100 percent of the air captured in the suction hose. The captured air must be filtered through a HEPA filter before being exhausted from the vacuum.
The Bosch VAC090S and VAC090A nine-gallon dust extractors and VAC140S and VAC140A 14-gallon dust extractors provide a best-in-class cubic feet of air per minute (CFM) rate and suction power. When a Bosch VF120H HEPA filter is installed in one of the dust extractors, the unit is compliant to the EPA rule for HEPA vacuums.
Silica dust can't be eliminated, but it can be managed. Not all debris can be efficiently collected into a vacuum for easy disposal. But rather than manage dust and debris, many contractors get managed by it.
With the right equipment, dust can be extracted during the construction application. This is an important part of environmental management aiming to mitigate dust for the health of on-site construction crews and to keep the jobsite as clean as possible.
