At Intex, we say Death to Dust!
Though dust is unavoidable while you work, don't let it take over your job site...or your life.
Keep work surfaces – and your lungs – safe from dust and mist inhalation with Intex's total dust control solutions.
Whether on a building site, in business premises or homes, drilling, milling, grinding, sanding and sawing often create very high dust emissions. Therefore, it is important to know the danger that exists. Dust ratings are from light to middle, through to highly dangerous and classified dusts.
Without the relevant protective measures, the smallest of dust particles are breathed in. In the worst cases, these penetrate into the lung tissue, the alveoli, where they cause severe damage - even lung cancer.
Timely avoidance of dust development and control through the use of the highly efficient Intex Starmix® Dust Extractors, Intex® Giraffe Sanders and Intex® Dust Masks.
Intex Starmix® Dust Extractors remove dust particles directly from the zone, especially when connected to the Intex Giraffe Sanders. P2-Rated Intex® Dust Masks also minimise the inhalation of these harmful dusts.
Every year, an estimated 600-900 people die in New Zealand from work-related health issues and a further 5,000-6,000 are hospitalised with cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and other chronic illnesses from workplace exposure to airborne contaminants.
Regularly breathing construction dust can cause diseases like lung cancer, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD – which includes emphysema and other breathing difficulties), and silicosis.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is an umbrella term used to describe progressive and (currently) incurable lung diseases including emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and refractory (non-reversible) asthma. This disease is characterized by increasing breathlessness.
Fumes, chemicals and dust found in many work environments are contributing factors for many individuals who develop COPD
These dusts have an occupational exposure limit value (AGW) of >1mg/m3. The filter material of vacuum cleaners of dust class L is tested. The maximum particle penetration grade is less than 1%. There are no special disposal requirements.
Dust class M (middle)
Here, dusts with an AGW of > 0,1mg/m3 are present. These vacuum cleaners are tested as complete units. The maximum particle penetration grade is less than 0.1%. Disposal of the dirt must be carried out low on dust.
Dust class H (high)
This dust class covers dust with an AGW value of < 0.1 mg/m3, all carcinogenic dust and dust which is tainted with pathogens. These vacuum cleaners are also tested as complete devices. The maximum particle penetration grade is less than 0.005%.
Disposal of the dirt must be carried out free of dust.
Dust Class H-Asbestos
This class corresponds to dust class H. The difference: an additional test for machines and devices that eliminates dust and is intended to collect and separate asbestos (in accordance with TRGS 519)
“The Starmix ISP iPulse ARM-1635 EW is a strong vacuum cleaner, surprisingly quiet and it works with a constantly high suction power. The automatic vibration of the filters is a fine thing. In my opinion a buying recommendation!”
