Trombia solves your silica dust challenge and makes you meet the worksite dust regulations
OSHA regulation makes it mandatory to minimize silica exposure at all worksites in the United States
Crystalline silica is a common mineral found in the earth's crust. Materials like sand, stone, concrete, and mortar contain crystalline silica. It is also used to make products such as glass, pottery, ceramics, bricks, and artificial stone. For example in the United States OSHA's silica standard for construction applies to all occupational exposures to respirable crystalline silica in construction work, except where employee exposures will remain below the AL of 25 μg/m3, calculated as an 8-hour TWA, under any foreseeable conditions. 29 C.F.R. § 1926.1153(a). On March 25, 2016, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published a final rule regulating occupational exposure to respirable crystalline silica (silica) in the construction industry (the standard).
The main challenge for any worksite with respirable crystalline silica dust exposure that no method has been found effective and cost-efficient enough. Where silica dust is created, the work site grounds, floor and surrounding air will be gathering and accumulating fine silica dust continuously.
While some try to address these challenges solely with dust suppression water, the only effective way to combat this challenge is to continuously and with regular intervals sweep, pick up and remove the harmful dust out from the worksite area.
Trombia Airknife Sweeper is designed to accomplish this with significantly lower costs and above-par performance than any other device out in the market.
European standards for PM2,5 and PM10 sized dust particle management has intensified in recent years.
European sweeping industry has understood the importance of dust management for pavement and industrial site operators.
The governing body of the sweeper manufacturers, EUNited Municipal Equipment, has developed a world benchmark test that measures both, dust removal and dust control ability of the street sweepers.
Trombia sweepers are the world's first and only waterless wheel loader attachment that delivers the highest 4-star rating of sweeping performance, according to EUnited.
In addition to the 4-star rating, Trombia delivers above 95% pick up capability for the finest dust particles which can be matched only by a few high end road suction sweepers.
Waterless silica dust removal
Unlike any other sweeping vehicle or device out in the market, Trombia actually picks up the silica dust and removes it permanently off your site.
Any water-based method will only bind dust on the site ground and cause severe dust challenges once the dust suppression water has dried up.
Mounts with your work site wheel loader
Instead of acquiring expensive sweeper trucks with fine dust sweeping capabilities - Trombia gives your worksite a simple solution and mounts any of your 19 000lbs+/9000kg+ wheel loader.
Investment for a Trombia sweeper is approximately one fifth of a sweeper truck.
