General Equipment Company has introduced its DB Series of Dust Collection Bags, which attach to confined space ventilation blowers for extracting airborne dust created by drilling, sawing, sanding, chopping or other jobsite activities. The bags also help operators meet compliance with OSHA 29CFR 1926.1153 regarding exposure to respirable crystalline silica in construction work.

The DB Series is available in three sizes for use with 8-, 12- and 16-inch (203, 305 and 406 mm) nominal blowers. The non-woven polyester bag material provides 85-percent filtration efficiency for controlling silica dust and other non-combustible dusts or particulate-type materials. The bags meet Efficiency Particulate Filter class E10, as well as the European filtration standard EN1822:2009.

Each bag is 9.8 feet (3 m) long with a cinch-type strap for easy attachment. The bags can be washed up to two times using procedures that comply with applicable health and safety regulations. They are designed for use in a wide variety of non-hazardous type locations, but are not intended for asbestos abatement or mold remediation applications.

In addition to the dust collection bags, General Equipment Company offers an industry-leading line of confined space ventilation blowers, which are sold separately.

In business since 1955, General Equipment Company is a family-owned manufacturer of hole digging, surface preparation, dust collection, plus portable ventilation, air scrubbing and lighting equipment. For more information, visit
