"The data collected in this study indicates that the RESPA-SD and Sy-Klone’s filter will reduce exposures to RCS, and should be fitted to all air conditioned mobile plant and crusher control cabins used in the quarrying industry.”

About Respirable Crystalline Silica (RCS), How it Kills, and How to Control It

Case 2188 Combine gets relief from overwhelming heat and "dust storms" of dirt in cab
Air which was supposed to enter the cab through the ROPS was competely blocked by dirt above a clogged tube body precleaner, so no air reached the filter and the fan motor burnt out. RESPA-SD was the solution.
