Dust Control Methods for Tuckpointing

 

When performing tuckpointing, you must use a grinder 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 blade, you need a dust collector that provides at least 125 CFM. If you switch to a 7-inch blade, 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!).

 

Required Respiratory Protection: 

  • 4 hours or less/shift: APF 10
  • 4 hours or more/shift: APF 25
