Are you OSHA compliant?
Hydraulic fracturing operations in the oil and gas industry must implement engineering controls to limit exposures to the new PEL by June 23, 2021. Among other things, OSHA’s Respirable Crystalline Silica standard requires employers to use housekeeping methods that do not create airborne dust and use dust controls to protect workers from silica exposures above the PEL.

OSHA Silica Dust Rules for the Frac Sand Industry
Though OSHA standards limiting the amount of respirable silica dust went into effect in June of 2016, the frac sand industry had until June 23, 2021 to bring silica dust down to the levels specified by the new standard.

PEBCO’s self contained dustless loading spouts are used for loading dry bulk solids into open and enclosed trucks, railcars, barges, ships, and containers. The spouts incorporate a series of stacking cones that contain the product as it free falls into the vessel being loaded. An outer sleeve assembly envelops the cone sections in order to contain fugitive dust.
PEBCO Dustless Loading Spouts are available with spout positioners, integral dust collectors, and articulated loading systems. Cone materials are available in polyethylene, mild steels, AR steels, stainless steels, and chromium carbides.

In the spotlight:
POWERCORE® Bin Vent COLLECTORS
BIN VENT COLLECTORS
Today’s streamlined and lean manufacturing facilities demand peak performance even within the smallest spaces. Torit PowerCore space-saving dust collectors are available as stand-alone models that can be ducted to many different applications, as well as bin vent models used on applications like silos, conveyor transfer
points, conveyor discharges, blenders and mixers.
Compared to traditional bag-style bin vents with similar airflow capacities, Torit PowerCore CPV bin vent dust collectors are up to 70% shorter than other bag-style bin vents and effectively address the frequent challenge of tight space limitations.
Bin vents fit into the tightest spaces
PowerCore filter packs with Ultra-Web® technology provide higher efficiency for cleaner air. Plus, replacing PowerCore filter packs is a remarkably clean process
Clean-side filter access and fewer, lighter filters means faster, easier filter changes without tools or filter cages
An optimized airflow management system delivers optimal pulse cleaning while minimizing airflow restriction
Innovative PowerCore filtration technology means reduced freight and installation costs, fewer filter changeouts, lower maintenance costs, and no entry requirements for filter changes
