ELIMINATE RESPIRABLE SILICA DUST
Unlike silica sand, CARBO ceramic casting media does not generate airborne dust particles and produces no respirable silica dust, so it easily complies with OSHA (1926.1153) silica dust permissible exposure limits (PEL). In fact, in rigorous testing under foundry conditions, CARBO ceramic media was proven silica dust-free at a detection threshold of 0.0056 mg/m3 – roughly 10 times less than the new permissible exposure limit of 0.05 mg/m3.
Reduce the costs of OSHA compliance
Replacing silica sand with CARBO ceramic casting media is the most cost-effective way for a foundry to meet OSHA requirements for silica dust exposure. Simply upgrading to CARBO ceramic media avoids the considerable costs and complications of installing expensive equipment that would be necessary to meet the PEL requirements.
