The Difference Between Traditional and Planetary Floor Grinders

When it comes to concrete grinders, there are two main types needed to use for concrete flooring. Knowing the difference between traditional rotary floor grinders and planetary floor grinders will help in choosing the right equipment for the job. They are used to smooth, level, prep, polish, or remove thick layers on concrete flooring. The easiest way to know the difference between the traditional rotary and planetary grinders is how the discs are situated at the base of the grinder. Traditional rotary grinders have several different configurations of discs along the base. The grinders either have one large single disc that rotates along the base. Or many smaller disc along the base that counter-rotate. The smaller discs on the base can be either on the same plane or overlapping. If the rotary grinder has multiple small discs, it will not have a large disc. But all the discs configurations on the rotary grinder are easily identified. Now these grinders are difficult to maneuver due to …

There are few more grinders which are specialized grinder made for polishing and grinding marbles, concrete and granite.

New OSHA Fines for Dust Particles in HEPA Vacuums in Aug 2016

High-Efficiency Particulate Air vacuums, known as HEPA vacuums, are much different than conventional vacuums. They contain certified HEPA filters that are capable of capturing the finest micron-sized most dangerous-to-breath dust particles. The HEPA vacuum helps the dangerous particles from being released back into the air.
HEPA vacuums help provide perfectly breathable air from dust and particles that are hazardous. When using a HEPA vacuum, they will be efficient for fast recovery of bulk dry dust, debris and other building material found at construction, abatement, and restoration sites. Since HEPA vacuums can trap the tiniest airborne particles, the United States Department of Labor require the vacuums for final cleanup of at and around remediation areas. The filter of the HEPA vacuum must be properly seated and changed so all the air can be passed through the filter and ensure it will collect the dangerous micron particles at the remediation areas.
Remember when changing the filter…
