OSHA's Silica Dust Exposure Law
Effective Date: 23 June 2016, Compliance Date: 23 June 2017.
Are You In Compliance?
The Dust Director® has been used and has figured prominently in just about every silica dust control study since its inception in 2001.
How about Your Vacuum?
Does your vacuum have enough CFM to handle your wheel’s diameter?
OSHA’s Silica Dust Exposure Law – Requires the following CFM Rating: 25 CFM or greater per inch of wheel diameter. For example, a 7″ wheel needs 175 CFM (7″ x 25 CFM).
Final Rule – CFM Requirements
To comply with OSHA’s Silica Dust Exposure Law, one of your first steps is to select a vacuum or cyclone that has enough CFM to handle the diameter of the grinding or cutting wheel that you will be using. Use the chart and information below to help you select the vacuum that will have enough CFM.

Features - Both Deluxe Models, 5" & 7".
Maximum Dust Control, Operator Full Control while Grinding.
Harden Polyethylene Cast Housing provides durability and lightweight —
While carefully designed for floor grinding, these lightweight Deluxe Guards are ideal for unmatched dust control and productivity during wall and overhead grinding.
Flexible Rubber Diaphragm –
- Eliminates the need for perimeter rubber skirts and constantly having to adjust the dust skirt.
- Automatically adjusts the guard and cup wheel to the surface.
- As the guard and cup wheel automatically conforms to the contour of the surface, simultaneously it maintains maximum dust control.
Hinged Edging Cover –
Opens to grind along wall edges while maintaining maximum dust containment.
Replaceable Nylon Wear Strips (3/16″ height) –
Prolongs the life of the guard as the Wear Strips glide the guard effortlessly across the surface . . . leaving the floor clean.
Fitted Air Vent –
Adjustable air vent gives the operator finger tip control should the vacuum cleaner’s suction be too strong, which causes a suck-down effect.
Adjustable Insert Collars –
Equipped with assorted collars for installing the guard onto your angle grinder. Each collar is adjustable to further ensure that at least one of the included collars will fit your grinder. Additional collars are available to suit different makes and models.
2″ OD Vacuum Hose Port –
Vacuum hose port swivels to help keep the vacuum’s hose from interfering with the grinding process.
