Dust Management: An Industrial Problem Across Industries
Dust management is a significant challenge arising from worksite trade operations. Various types of debris are generated during construction projects and can pose serious health and hygiene issues for groups onsite. Based on the volume of dust and the type of dust created, a high-quality cleaning solution is required to maintain a pleasant worksite and to prevent dust exposure to individuals.
This is where M-Class vacuum cleaners can provide an effective dust solution to worksites susceptible to fine dusts. ‘M’ Class are industrial vacuums/dust extractors classified as being able to collect medium-risk dust such as plaster, cement, pine-wood and concrete. M Class vacuum cleaners are installed with a specific industrial filter that can collect fine dusts for removal and disposal from site.
Processes such as hammering, drilling, grinding, crushing or sawing can be generators of hazardous dust; if your site undertakes these operations a M Class vacuum may be required. It is important to note that some M-Class materials can actually be generating H-Class dusts, so professional advice may be required to ascertain which vacuum is appropriate for your site’s waste.
What makes them different from 'L' Class and 'H' Class vacuums?
There are three classes of industrial vacuums that are suitable to collect different types of dust; L-Class, M-Class and H-Class. These categories help determine the suitability of an industrial vacuum cleaner to collect different types of dust in compliance with standard EN 60335-2-69 - Annexe AA.
Please note, always refer to your local health and safety authority for the most up-to-date standards and guidelines regarding dust classes.
L-Class vacuums are suitable to collect non-hazardous, general dust found in a facility which retains at least 99% of vacuumed particles and has an exposure limit value of over 1 mg/m3 (depending on volume). These vacuums are not typically used in industrial applications as they do not provide the level of filtration needed to safely extract finer dusts. Dust bags are not required for these vacuum cleaners.
Class M vacuums have an exposure limit of not lower than 0.1 mg/m3 and retains 99.9% of vacuumed particles.
H-Class vacuums are one tier more rigorous than M-Class vacuums. H-Class vacuums feature HEPA filtration to collect extremely fine dust such as silica; these vacuums must use a dust bag and at times, a safety bag for dust collection. H-Class dust has an exposure limit value lower than 0.1 mg/m3 (depending on volume occupied), retaining at least 99.95% of the vacuumed particles.
Customers can sometimes be confused whether Class M vacuum or H-Class vacuum cleaners are adequate for their site, so professional advice is always encouraged before making a decision.
