The Coal Industry remains an important industrial sector in many parts of the world and although substantial progress has been made in the control of occupational health hazards, there remains room for further risk reduction. This applies particularly to ensure exposures to coal dust and crystalline silica remain effectively controlled.

Coal dust is a fine powdered form of coal, which is created by the crushing, grinding, or pulverizing of coal. Because of the brittle nature of coal, coal dust can be created during mining, transportation, or by mechanically handling coal.

Coal dust suspended in air is explosive—coal dust has far more surface area per unit weight than lumps of coal, and is more susceptible to spontaneous combustion.

PrestiVac Vacuum Cleaner Systems are specifically designed to safely vacuum and collect the hazardous and combustible dusts generated in the Coal Industry. Here is a list of different applications. Please click on your application so you can see the different models we have available for you:
