There are three effective ways that can be used individually or separately to control dust and prevent it from becoming a problem, which is suppression, filtration, and containment. GRT has developed its dust control & suppression technologies so that they are simple to use, highly effective, and increase in cost-effectiveness over time. In addition to this, they can deliver these benefits using existing or readily available equipment such as existing spray systems and water lines, water trucks, cannons, and overhead spray bar systems.
Conventional dust suppression methods waste water, contaminates runoff, contain hazardous chemicals, reduce road stability, impact driver safety and increase costs.
Our offered dust suppression solutions are designed to mitigate dust at its source by spraying water mixed with dust control and prevention agents into the bulk material. As dust control and prevention agents reduce the surface tension of water, it absorbs more readily into the bulk material, making the particles more cohesive. These cohesive particles adhere more easily to each other creating larger and heavier particles. The heavier particles are not able to be entrained by the air movement that comes along with moving the material. Dust creation is reduced or eliminated.
Not so with GRT dust control & suppression solutions. GRT’s environmentally and safety friendly products result in excellent dust prevention and higher quality, more durable roads. Customer feedback and independent scientific analysis found that GRT’s dust suppression products suppress greater than 95% of dust particles and delivered up to 75% cost savings compared to conventional water-only options.
GRT’s technology solves a range of dust control & suppression problems on all types of roads, from major highways and freeways to haulage, industrial and rural roads, tarmacs, hardstand areas, and water repellent pavements. It can be easily applied to clay, silt, sand and gravel materials, immediately creating safer, more sustainable and cost-effective infrastructure.
Compared to conventional processes, GRT’s dust control & suppression solutions offer a set of distinct advantages and lucrative benefits, including easy application and long life protection across extreme climatic conditions. Our dust & water management products also offer the toughness and flexibility to be applied across a diverse spectrum of industries, improving safety and eliminating dust complaints from staff and surrounding landholders. Apart from the longer-term maintenance efficiencies, savings can also be achieved from the significant reduction of wind-borne material losses. Plus, as a non-toxic product with a low carbon footprint, it offers further environmental protection by reducing the damage caused by fugitive dust.
GRT’s dust suppression technology mainly falls under the following groups.
