Eliminate OSHA PEL concern
Unlike silica sand, CARBO ceramic casting media produces no respirable silica dust, so it easily complies with OSHA (1926.1153) silica dust permissible exposure limits (PEL). Replacing silica sand with CARBO ceramic casting media is the most cost-effective way for a foundry to meet OSHA requirements for silica dust exposure. Simply upgrading to CARBO ceramic media avoids the considerable costs and complications of installing expensive equipment that would be necessary to meet the PEL requirements. CARBO ceramic media is the optimum solution for OSHA silica PEL compliance in a wide variety of applications.
