In 2016 OSHA implemented stricter regulations on exposure to silica dust for American construction workers.
These new rules are designed to keep workers safe and outline methods for controlling dust. Dust suppression using water is the most highly recommended method for reducing workers to excessive exposure to silica dust.
The TEI Water Mist System for rock drills efficiently injects water into the drilling air, reducing dust drastically to comply with local and federal safety regulations regarding dust and silica. Our TE30851R Misting System is equipped with a 25 gallon water tank that provides dust suppression for 4-8 hours depending on the size of the hole.
