    Silica testing : ALS

    Both OSHA and NIOSH has identified exposure to silica as a health hazard as dust containing crystalline forms of silica (quartz, cristobalite, and tridymite) may cause silicosis. New Permissible exposure limit (PEL) for crystalline silica was introduced in 2016 highlighting the hazard this kind of exposure presents

    In nature, quartz is the cr ystal line form most commonly encountered an d is so abu ndant that the term quartz is often used in place of the general term crystalline silica [6, 7]. Quartz is abundant in most rocks and soils and is also present in sand, mortar, concrete, fluxes, abrasives, construction aggregate, porcelain, paints and brick [8]

    Quartz sand screening process Quartz ore is washed and crushed into 8~10mm particle size, and then enters the roller grinding machine sand with a size of 0.4~0.1mm. Then enters the vibrating screen, and the sieved quartz sand is classified into 20 mesh, 50 mesh, 100 Mesh, 160 mesh, 200 mesh and other particle size specifications
