Dust suppression with water mist is a successful way to limit unwanted dust emissions. This is especially useful in industries where it is necessary to comply with certain limits. At the same time, it also improves working conditions for employees and supports the longevity of machinery.
Dust refers to the distribution of fine particles of solid substances in the air, which are caused by mechanical processes or general whirling of dust. Airborne dust particles have a negative impact on people, the environment and the equipment being used.
Our solutions for dust suppression create a fine water mist that moistens the dust particles, makes them heavier, and brings them down to the ground. An essential aspect of this process is to produce the right size of droplets. Droplets that are too large, like those created by a conventional hose only have low levels of dust control. The available surface area is smaller, and the drops are heavier. Thus, they just float in the air for a short time, which significantly reduces the possibility of binding with the dust. If, however, the droplets are too small, they can be blown away with the wind and no longer reach their target.
Our strength lies in the fact that we can atomize water into a wide variety of droplet sizes (between 10-100 μm). As a result, our dust binders can handle any dust problem and can adapt to a whole range of conditions. Above all, it is essential for successful dust suppression to find the right mix between efficient binding of dust and protection of the goods located in the same area (for example, recycled objects must not be made soaking wet in a recycling plant. We can achieve this with our machines.
