To determine which OSHA regulations apply to your operation, you will need to consider factors such as the number of people involved in the process, the dimension of the work space, the risk profile of the dust or fume being produced. For each airborne contaminant, OSHA specifies the Permissible Exposure Limits (PELs), and allowable Time Weighted Average of exposure. Wherever high concentration levels of fumes or dust are produced, OSHA guidelines call for “capture at source” ventilation.

“Diversitech was very helpful in providing useful information to solve our particular Dust Collection problem.
Our users have all had good things to say about the product and working with Ron Morris was a pleasure.
He provided all the support we needed in getting our system up and running.
I would recommend Diversitech to anyone that needed a similar product.
It is very well made and easy to use and maintain.”
« As a repeat customer, and owner of both wet and dry downdraft tables, we cannot say enough about the products, and the people at Diversitech…….both are a pleasure to work with! »
« The tables are now fully functioning! The students were on them yesterday, and the instructors were so impressed. One instructor even said that he’s “old school” and wasn’t sure about the downdrafts, but he was very impressed. »
« We love the downdraft table and are using it full time. We will probably be looking for another one in 6 months to a year as well. Thanks for a nice product. »
