Effective control of dust with water mist depends on using the right size of water droplets. Here you find out exactly what that means.
Dust has various negative influences on people and can cause diseases of the respiratory system. Those who are responsible for generating dust are increasingly being asked to reduce their dust emissions.
The principle of dust control works as follows: the water droplets that are atomized into fine water mist combine with the dust particles in the air to make them heavier and bring them down to the ground. The size of the water drops is an essential criterion for the quality of the dust control. It is essential that the water droplets are similar in size to the dust particles to allow them to adhere to them. This means that larger droplets combine with larger dust particles and smaller droplets with smaller particles.
The areas of application for dust controllers and solutions for the control of dust are very diverse. Above all, it is designed for those companies that are unable to capture dust-laden air in any other way. These are typically material handling sites, construction sites, recycling yards, quarries, mines, steelworks, and cement works.
