Dust is generated by wind erosion as well as by moving, crushing, grinding or milling materials to a finer size. It consists of solid particles larger than 1 micron in mean diameter.
Dust suppression systems increase humidity/moisture in the product stream, helping to minimize dust overall and prevent it from becoming airborne. Moisture can be added to the material when it is stationary or moving. Such systems use nozzles that produce drops in the 100 to 250 µm range to create a fine drizzle effect.
Airborne dust-capture spray systems produce very fine water drops to collide with dust particles in the air, forming agglomerates of dust and water too heavy to remain airborne.
Spraying dust with liquid adds weight to the particulate matter and prevents it from becoming airborne or settles it quickly, if already airborne. Adding moisture to dust and materials during processing also helps minimize the amount of dust produced downstream.
Dust Suppression Systems can be an extremely cost-effective alternative to Dust Extraction Systems for fugitive dust control, particularly in bulk material handling plants. At times, it is the only solution when it comes to large dust-prone area and stockpiles, which cannot be controlled by dust extraction for practical and economical reasons.
The inclusion of Dust Suppression Systems has become a standard and is today an integral part of a material handling system to prevent fugitive dust nuisance which violates environmental norms, adversely affects plant and machinery life & operation and reduces workplace productivity. The system also has a payback as it prevents loss of raw material during handling and also provides the additional benefit of not having a secondary pollution problem as the dust is retained in the material itself.
The Dust Suppression Systems are custom designed to suit specific applications after a detailed analysis of the site conditions and can be used in the following areas
