WHAT IS CRYSTALLINE SILICA?
Silica, often referred to as quartz, is a very common mineral. It is found in many materials common on construction sites, including soil, sand, concrete, masonry, rock, granite, and landscaping materials. The dust created by cutting, grinding, drilling or otherwise disturbing these materials can contain crystalline silica particles. These dust particles are very small and invisible to the naked eye. When inhaled, even in very small amounts, silica dust can cause serious health hazards. Each exposure to silica adds to the lung damage.
WHAT IS SILICOSIS?
Silicosis is a disabling, irreversible, and sometimes fatal lung disease. When a worker inhales crystalline silica, the lungs react by developing hard nodules and scarring around the trapped silica particles. If the nodules become too large, breathing becomes difficult and death can result. There is no cure for this disease, but it is 100% preventable.
Whether you are concerned about the health of your employees, your health, compliance or increasing productivity, Bosch has developed PRO+GUARD protection systems. In order to move toward compliancy and protection, it is critical that every component in the system is designed to effectively remove dust. Bosch dust collection systems can reduce airborne dust, helping to create a safer and healthier working environment.
PROTECT YOURSELF & OTHERS
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued a final rule to curb lung cancer, silicosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and kidney disease in Americaʼs workers by limiting their exposure to respirable crystalline silica. While using power tools with a dust attachment/ accessory and dust extractors with the right filter, exposure to silica can be drastically reduced. The new standard went into effect on June 23, 2016, and employers are required to comply with all obligations of the standard by June 23, 2017.
The new Bosch VAC090A dust extractor offers a best in class combination of air flow and suction power, which makes this vacuum ideally for dust extraction applications. With productivity enhancing features like automatic filter cleaning, power tool activation, L-BOXX compatibility and a 9-gallon canister, the VAC090A dust extractor is the tool of choice for contractors who need to collect a lot of dust and debris. The automatic filter cleaning system, when activated, cleans the filters every 15 seconds to ensure optimal suction power. For decreased set-up time and fewer extension cords on the jobsite, the VAC090A offers a power tool activation feature that allows a power tool to be plugged into the vacuum and act as the on and off switch, while the Power Broker dial optimizes usage of the available power and helps avoid blown circuits. To protect the motor, the wet vacuuming water level sensor automatically shuts down vacuum when water reaches a maximum height. To meet the needs of the modern day contractor who may use this unit for multiple applications, the VAC090A is HEPA Ready. When used with a HEPA filter (accessory VF120H - Not Included), the VAC090A meets the EPA criteria of a HEPA Vacuum and can be used in RRP applications. The Bosch VAC090A is equipped with hose wrap hooks to securely manage the hose, heavy duty rubber wheels with plastic hubs, a locking castor and L-BOXX compatibility, all of which make this more than just a typical dust extraction unit. The Bosch VAC090A 9-Gallon Dust Extractor with Auto Filter Clean unit also includes: (1) VH1035 10-Foot Hose, (1) VB000P Plastic Bag, (1) VF100 Filter, (1) Power Tool Hose Adapter and (1) Anti-Static Bend Nozzle.
Top Customer Reviews
I've been sitting back looking at dust extractors for about a year. I was ready to pull the trigger on a Festool unit when this new Bosch item came up.
I own a number of Bosch hand tools and have been very pleased with the quality. I'm impressed with the unit's quietness while developing great suction. Nice to have the HEPA capability if I need it. Automatic filter cleaning sounds funky but not objectionable. Auto start feature w/ other tools is a great feature. I'm doing a fair amount of sheetrock work, so I've purchased an Oneida centrifugal filter to run in combination with the Bosch unit... Works great.
I opted to purchase this model over the auto filter clean model because I consistently use it with a HEPA filter and the auto clean will damage the filter. The semi-auto clean function is activated by a button on the nozzle (for when you use a paper filter) or can be entirely disabled. It does not include any vacuum attachments so they will have to be purchased separately. May not be worth it to someone doing small DIY projects, but if you are a professional, concerned with your health or simply a handyman with dust allergies it's a solid investment.
