Dust Control Methods for Handheld Grinding

 

When using a handheld grinder, use a model equipped with an integrated water delivery system that continuously feeds water to the grinding surface.

 

Use a grinder that is equipped with a commercially available shroud and dust collection system. Operate and maintain the tool in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions to minimize dust emissions.


The dust collector must provide 25 cubic feet per minute (CFM) or greater per inch of blade diameter.

 

So, for example, if you’re using a 5-inch cup wheel, you need a dust collector that provides at least 125 CFM. If you switch to a 7-inch cup wheel, your dust collector must provide at least 175 CFM.

 

The dust collector must also have a filter with 99% or greater efficiency and a cyclonic pre-separator or filter-cleaning mechanism (no more taking the filter out and banging it over a trashcan!).
