Warning, fine dust!
Better, dust-free work
The problem: whether on a building site, in business premises or homes - drilling, milling, grinding and sawing often create very high dust emissions. The danger: without the relevant protective measures, the smallest of dust particles are breathed in. In the worst cases, these penetrate into the alveloi, where they cause severe damage. The ideal solution: timely avoidance of dust development through use of the highly efficent starmix high performance electric power tool vacuum cleaners. The advantage: they suck up dust particles directly into the electric tool with intelligent pulse.
Take no risks!
It doesn't matter where you work - dust occurs everywhere. Therefore, it is important to know the danger that could exist. They range from light to middle through to highly dangerously classified dusts. At high exposure, it often leads to illnesses - in extreme cases, even lung cancer.
Do not forget: finer is more fearsome.
The general rule is: the finer the dust, the greater the health risk. Therefore, different particle sizes have different dangers:
< 10 µm Reduces lung function
< 2 µm Skin and eye ailments
< 1 µm Tumors
< 0,1 µm Heart and lung diseases
Dust-free instead of construction freeze!
Since 1st June 2010, new technical rules for dangerous materials have been in force (TRGS 559). The legislators stipulate that machines and equipment are to be operated in such a way that as little dust is released as possible. In some countries, authorities are already closing down construction sites with no dust extractors in operation.
All dust classes at a glance.
Dust class L (light)
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 > 0.1 mg/m³ are present. These vacuum cleaners are tested as complete units. The maximum particle penetration grade is less than 0.1 %. Disposal 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 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 inteded to collect and separate asbestos (in accordance with TRGS 519).
Working with starmix: lots of choice, many advantages.
As well as the avoidance of dangerous fine dusts, starmix vacuum cleaners offer many other advantages. A few examples:
- awarded with the best certifications (A TNO).
- simple, self-explanatory operation.
- protects the electric power tool from extreme dirt.
- simple work preparation, as hardly any isolation or housing is necessary.
