Milwaukee OSHA Dustless Solutions
Milwaukee® is a manufacturer of industrial tools for professional tradesmen and contractors. They craft power tools such as grinders, drills and demolition hammers. When used on concrete, stone or ceramic material, these tools can produce a lot of dust, which contains silica. Silica is a mineral that's hazardous to breathe in and can lead to Silicosis, also known as Stone Mason's Disease. To address this health risk, OSHA adopted the 2016 Silica Rule, requiring that employers have a dust management system that filters and captures 99% of silica dust. Milwaukee OSHA-compliant dustless solutions meet the industry health standards and protect the long-term health of tradesmen.
Milwaukee offers dust shrouds and dust extractors that attach to their Milwaukee surface grinding tools. Dust shrouds attach to any grinder with a collar size ranging from 1.5 inches to 2.1875 inches. The dust extractors can attach to drills, rotary hammers and demolition hammers. With high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters, these Milwaukee dust extractors can capture 99.97% of silica dust for high-quality debris filtration. These portable shrouds are cordless and can be operated with a M12 REDLITHIUM™ battery pack. The dust extractors come with a lightweight, durable plastic carrying case.
Milwaukee dust extractor kits include the battery and charger, while the bare tool can be bought separately. Milwaukee also offers vacuum assisted dust extractors for rotary hammers, which have a special attachment for vacuum hoses. The vacuums provide the suction power to remove dust while drilling. Vacuum-assisted Milwaukee dust extractors can be used with wet or dry vacuums.
Milwaukee has all the accessories you need to maintain your dust management system. Contractors can get packs of filters or replacement nozzles for the dust extractors. Take advantage of these solutions when using Milwaukee instruments and power tools to ensure safety for your next project.
