The expectation on the effectiveness of dust suppression systems has increased enormously in recent years. Several factors are decisive for effective dust suppression with water mist. In this article you can find out which ones.
The most important element is the water mist itself: the fine mist moistens the dust, makes it heavy and brings it to the ground without forming puddles or muddying the material. Water mist has a double function in order to reduce unwanted dust emissions in the air:
- by moistening the air, the dust floating in it is brought to the ground
- by moistening the surfaces (material as well as floor), the “open surfaces” are sealed and dust does not get into the air in the first place
