Dust collector captures fugitive silica dust
A paving stone manufacturer installs a dust collector to help eradicate fugitive dust.
When Unilock Ltd., headquartered in Ontario, Canada, was making plans to build a new facility in Pickering, Ont., one of its priorities was to find a dust collector that could manage fugitive particle emissions, especially from crystalline silica. Silica, always a concern, is a basic component of sand, granite, and other minerals. Because crystalline silica is a regulated substance, eliminating exposure through engineered filtration controls and providing a safe work environment was of the utmost importance to Unilock.
