VACUUM CLEANERS FOR CONSTRUCTION SITES: THE ISSUE OF DUST AND TAILINGS
Construction sites continuously produce dusts and tailings. Demolitions, excavations, stripping, perforations, grinding and shattering of inert substances, cement mixer loading with materials coming from sacks and silos, demolition of concrete structures with pneumatic hammers: these are just a few examples of operations that generate a great quantity of dust.
Interior and exterior restorations produce the same results. Covering furniture with polyethylene sheets is not enough to preserve the environment because fine dusts can penetrate even the smaller fissures.
The use of a proper vacuum cleaner for construction sites is important to avoid collateral effects due to this waste accumulation. In this way, it is possible to avoid the following issues:
•Exposure to health risks due to dust inhalation
•Further cleaning operation requiring further funds
•Possible damages to the devices already on site, due to dust accumulation
•Risk of complaints because of the high levels of pollution produced in the construction site
Vacuum cleaners for construction sites
Dusts resulting from construction sites are really dangerous, especially those containing silica. Being exposed to silica dust can cause serious health damages, like silicosis, la tuberculosis and even lung cancer.
That kind of dust can be produced during operations like drilling and shredding granite, sandstone, abrasive sand, etc.
Various measures can be taken in order to reduce the risk resulting from dust accumulation, but the use of a proper vacuum cleaner is the most immediate solution.
According to this, the efficiency of Elsea's vacuum cleaners is ensured by the presence of a device that allows the automatic start and stop of the suction and the automatic cleaning of the filter, through the control of the connected tool.
Moreover, thanks to the different filtration systems it is possible to choose the proper model according to the kind of dust produced in the construction site. There are vacuum cleaners for construction sites with M class filtering system (for medium hazardous dusts) or with H class filtering system (for high hazardous dusts and asbestos dusts).
Using a proper vacuum cleaner helps keeping the danger inside the working area, leaving other environments uncontaminated.
So, in case of a partial restructuring of a building, it is possible to protect the areas not involved in the restructuring.
Wet and dry vacuum cleaners for construction sites
The dust is not the only waste produced in construction sites: process water can also have dangerous effects. The elimination of liquids is crucial for a better organization of the technical operations and for having the possibility to work in a clean and functional environment.
Wet and dry vacuum cleaners for construction sites, like the model VERSO manufactured by Elsea, are the solution to use one single tool for two different functions, saving time and money.
The most recommended Elsea’s vacuum cleaners for construction sites are the models ALTAI and VIBRA; in case of liquids suction, one of the solutions proposed by Elsea for this specific kind of work is the model VERSO.
