Water (Soff-Cutting is not specifically addressed in Table 1 but would most closely be classified under flat sawing) Cutting is done while concrete is still wet enough to not produce dust. A water delivery system is not used. S 26 dust exrtactor will still be recommended to clean resulting debris (dry broom sweeping is prohibited) Proper cutting in the Green Zone
Soff-Cut dust reducer shroud and adequate dust extractor. Soff-Cut 150 use S 26 dust extractor; Soff-Cut 2000, 2500 use S 36 dust extractor; Soff-Cut 4000, 4200, 5000 use Soff-Cut 1000 vac or T 8600 P dust extractors Dry cutting w/vac


*Additional engineering controls to reduce exposure:
Objective data testing for Soff-Cut® Ultra Early Entry™ sawing without water in “Green Zone™” (tested)
Objective data testing for Soff-Cut® Ultra Early Entry™ sawing without water and with gas vacuum (tested)
Objective data testing for Soff-Cut® Ultra Early Entry™ sawing without water and with propane vacuum (tested)
