Montabert Water SprayMontabert has introduced a new water mist system for its hydraulic rock breakers to reduce silica dust on jobsites.

The system is available for the company’s smaller breakers, such as the SC-22 and SC-28.

The spray feature includes an integrated hose-protection design with a water inlet port. Breakers equipped with the system have two lifting points for improved safety and a water nozzle that provides a wide-angle spay, the company says.

The new mist system is designed to help meet OSHA requirements to reduce workers’ exposure to airborne crystalline silica, which has been linked to lung disease.
