Operators of open-pit activities, and especially in quarries, are often faced with the challenge of a high volume of dust over large areas. If there is a wind or if conditions are very dry, then this dust can affect not only their employees but often also entire residential areas in the vicinity of the plant.
Many individual operations in open-cut mining result in the generation of dust. This primarily occurs during loading and unloading operations, with crushers, and during loading material onto conveyor belts.
The main problem is that dust occurs over an extensive area in open-cut mines and especially in quarries. The dust problems generated by the various different types of work must be controlled using just the right amount of water. Some areas, like conveyor belts, should not get wet at all.
We can be very flexible in our approach to the particular problem because we have both mobile and stationary solutions for dust control. The H1, a high-pressure misting system, is exceptionally versatile because it can be customized to suit the needs of the customer. Our dust controllers with a long throw are also ideal for quarries and open-cut mines. Mobile machines can be adjusted easily, and can, therefore, be used for dust control at various sources.
Since many quarries are large-scale and have different dust problems, it often requires a combination of stationary and mobile solutions. In these cases, we take over the complete project management from initial survey to planning, installation and for supervision after commissioning.
