In the United States, the OSHA standard (29 CFR 1926.1153) requires employers to limit worker exposures to respirable crystalline silica and to take other steps to protect workers. Paxxo’s Longopac system is the solution for this requirement.
The bag system is used by over 40 manufacturers such as Husqvarna across the world. The dust is collected in a closed bag system, which is sealed without needing to be opened. Paxxo's bags are combined with powerful vacuum cleaners and HEPA filters, so that grinding wood or concrete floors and other dust-generating jobs can be carried out totally dust-free.
With Paxxo’s solution, the vacuum cleaner is loaded with a folded 75 feet (23m) bag cassette. With a few simple movements a bag can be replaced in a smooth and environmentally-friendly way. Since the bags are sealed at exactly the same size as the waste, there is no unnecessary waste of plastic. In fact, Paxxo claims this system saves up to 70% of the plastic compared with other bags currently used in the construction industry.
