Dust can pose a threat to employees especially in closed areas such as tunnel construction and underground mining. Successful dust control is very beneficial for the crew and also for the machinery they use.
Dust in tunnel construction not only pollutes workers' respiratory tracts; it also impairs the visibility, which in turn increases the level of potential danger. The technical equipment deployed can also be negatively affected by the dust load, which can reduce the service life of the machinery.
It is also necessary to keep the noise levels to a minimum because work is carried out in confined spaces. That is why smaller devices, such as the lance, are particularly suitable for dust control during tunneling activities. The lances have a large angle of inclination, are lightweight and can be transported and positioned by just one person.
The appropriate solution is decided upon during planning and consultation.
