The article presents information on induction machines developed by Ystral to eliminate silica dust in the manufacturing process. When silica powders are manually poured into the vessel, it results in high level of dust in both the vessel and work environment. Ystral has developed two machines to be installed inside the vessel: the TDS-Induction Mixer and the TDS-Dispermix. When these machines are installed inside a vessel, they create a vacuum and induct and mix under the liquid surface.
