Glass Manufacturing

Manufacturing of glass parts consist of both wet and dry grinding and polishing, glass has silica particulate which is extremely hazardous.  For dry grinding and polishing the AER Control Systems Vertical Cartridge Filter or VCF series is an excellent choice, it is recommended that a HEPA filter be added to be sure the silica is not exhausted from the dust collector.

Wet polishing or cutting will produce silica and mist, the AER Control Systems family of mist collectors will all be great choices as a HEPA filter can be added to protect the shop employees from breathing silica.
