Respirable Crystalline Silica Exposure Control Plan
When your plant facility is affected by respirable crystalline silica emission exposures, it is important to determine that your ventilation systems are operating as intended. Schust will work in conjunction with your industrial hygienist and IH audits to design a system that reduces worker’s silica exposure.
With nearly four centuries of combined experience, Schust has the experience and know-how to help get industrial facilities with harmful emission exposures on the path to meeting their compliance goals one step at a time.
Schust technicians visually inspect the current physical condition of dust collector(s) and system components.
- Tubesheet layout drawings are provided and indicate location of any defects or leaking filter media
- Technicians document the system air volume, static and velocity pressure, and filter pressure drop.
- A Schust technician provides the plant facility with a list of recommended repairs.
- Schust recommends that Inspections be scheduled on a regular basis

Schust plant ventilation audits take an in-depth view of how your facility’s dust collection and ventilation systems are operating.
During a plant ventilation audit, knowledgeable Schust technicians will visually observe and document:
- Material handling methods
- Employee movement
- Access requirements
- Potential exhaust enclosure limitations
- Cataloging the existing ventilation equipment and dust collection systems
- Airflow testing to determine operating performance

The Schust technical and engineering experts will suggest possible process changes or upgrades to dust collection equipment and air make-up systems:
- Recommend improvements for any emission capture such as OSHA rule 1910.1053 respirable crystalline silica
- Provide volume requirement changes needed to control the process
- Develop CAD drawings of hood concepts and duct schematics
