Dust Control

Dust Control in Ports

Fields of Application

Extreme levels of dust can result from loading various types of material. Ports in dry or windy areas are especially prone to dust problems. The materials being loaded should not be made heavier, and they need efficient dust control solutions.

Large quantities of dust result from loading and storing various types of material. Processes such as sandblasting also produce a lot of dust, and can be dangerous for those working in the area. If the port is situated close to a city, it is essential to control the dust before the wind blows it in the direction of an urban area.

We create tailored solutions to control dust at loading and unloading stations. The right choice of products is adapted to the individual requirements of the respective materials, whether it is bulk materials, metal, coal or other materials. Water curtains, for example, control dust without leaving the material wet.

A decision is made regarding an appropriate solution during planning and consultation.
