What are Dust suppression systems?
The Dust Suppression System applies cutting-edge technology to the tough and expensive task of dust management in manufacturing, industrial, and agricultural facilities. It creates an ultra-fine water fog that collects and traps dust particles, making it easier to remove them from the workplace and other ecologically sensitive places in a common scenario.
Technology involved behind dust suppression
The application of water and/or chemicals to the body of the material to prevent fines from being transported away into the air, or to the air above the material to return fugitive airborne fines to the material bed, is known as dust suppression.
The fact that the material does not have to be handled again is a key benefit of dust suppression. Without the need for extra material handling equipment, the suppressed dust returns to the main body of delivered material and the process.For this aim, a variety of methods are utilized, ranging from "garden hose" technology to water and surfactant sprays, foam and fog generating systems. These different suppression technologies require varied amounts of moisture to be added to the material.
The use of water over the body of material is perhaps the oldest approach for controlling fugitive dust. The weight of each dust particle is raised by soaking the fines, either while they lay in the material body or as they are taken up into the air, making them less likely to become airborne. Moisture also enhances the cohesive force of the material body, resulting in bigger, heavier particle groups and making it more difficult for air to take the dust particles away.This can be accomplished by spraying water via a succession of appropriately sized spray nozzles at a point when the material expands and absorbs air, such as during discharge from a transfer chute's head drum.
Water can also be utilized to create a "curtain" around a transfer point, guaranteeing that any dust particles that fly through the air, collide with the water sprays that surround the open area around the chute. Water droplets are projected to collide with dust particles, increasing their bulk and removing them from the air stream.
Some related equipment’s:
Sprinklers: Sprinklers are mostly used where a large area has to be watered, such as streets and open yards. Sizes are chosen based on the application, and the devices can be programmed to spray entire or partial circles. This ensures that the most possible area is covered with the least amount of overlap between spray heads. The average water use is between 0.3 and 95 m3/hr.
Rain guns: Dust suppression rain guns are meant to offer quick and effective dampening/wetting over wide areas with low water use. A high-frequency drive mechanism creates a fine water curtain and efficient water distribution while requiring minimal maintenance. Units range in size from 12 to 150 m3/hr., with spray trajectories of up to 120 meters.
Water Spray Nozzle Systems: These systems dampen common material handling activities and site borders immediately. At pressures ranging from 1 to 8 bar, the nozzle design assures a cone spray pattern. These nozzle systems are a low-cost alternative for material handling procedures and site borders when wetness isn't an issue.
