LAVINA® Vacuums by Superabrasive

New OSHA Regulations

Concrete grinding creates a lot of dust which could be hazardous. OSHA has released its final ruling on crystalline silica exposure which became effective on Sept 23, 2017, and employers are required to take measures to control silica dust exposure. To conform the new regulations, contractors should use one of the following work methods when grinding concrete:

  • Grind wet, i.e. use water to minimize airborn dust - all Lavina grinders are equipped with integrated water delivery system that continuously feeds water to the grinding surface.
  • Grind dry and use dust collection systems - make sure the dust extractor is appropriate for the grinder you are using. See reference guide below. Lavina X dust extractors are equipped with air filters and Hepa filter(s) with efficiency of 99.99% at 0.3 microns, and a filter-cleaning mechanism. Lavina dust extractors are also equipped with Longopac bagging system for easier and safer dust disposal.
  • Use protective masks or respirators which are approved for use with silica dust and conform government regulations.
