Sander

TNO has tested control measures for sanding hardwood.

 

The hazardous substance management plan is as follows (in order of effectiveness):

Step 1: Choose softwood instead of hardwood materials.

Step 2: Choose to build PREFAB.

Step 3: Choose dust-free processes an tools.  

 

TNO has tested one dust-free process for sanding. The test specifications are a space volume of 15 m3, ventilation of 150 m3/h and 100% power-on time of the tool.

The concentration of substance is measured in the employee's respiratory zone

Excess factor: 65 times limit hardwood dust

 

SANDING WITH CONTROL MEASURES

Prevention factor (PF): 200 - 1.400

Concentration of hardwood dust at workplace below limit value (2,0 mg / m³).
