Dust Suppression and Dust Abatement Misting Systems
In many outdoor workplaces, there is an ongoing need for dust suppression and odor control. In today’s environment, failure to address these issues can result in employee health issues and leaves the company open to environmental citations, fines and even shut-downs. Health risks include a possible reduction in oxygen intake by workers in the work area, as well as respiratory ailments. Worksite dust problems may also lead to an additional problem of dust migration to other sites in the near proximity to the work site.
In many cases, the toxic dust problems can be effectively managed by installing a high-pressure misting system.
These systems emit ultra-fine droplets of water (fewer than 10 microns in size) that have the capacity to capture airborne dust particles. A gathering of the dust particles is completed when the high-pressure water droplets adhere to the dust as the dust falls out of the air. To get the optimal effect, the size of the high-pressure misting droplets need be the same as the size of the dust that has to be suppressed.
The major component for the dust suppression misting system is the high-pressure misting nozzles. The efficiency of these nozzles determines the effectiveness of the dust control. Powerful high-pressure engines power the ultra-fine mist droplets. This size mist droplet (10-12 millionths of a meter in diameter) suppresses the EPA PM 10 standard for small dust particles in the best possible manner. The High-Pressure Misting Systems can effectively remove breathable and fugitive dust in the range-exceeding that EPA PM 10 standard for dust control.
Virtually all High-Pressure Misting system can be made to incorporate economically odor neutralization misting spray. As a result, these misting systems can use the same delivery device to bring down the dust in the air and remove any foul smell at the same time.
As stated in Wikipedia, “Dust Abatement is the process of inhibiting the creation of excess soil dust, a pollutant that contributes to excess levels of particulate matter.” High-Pressure Misting System is a very effective means to remove debris such as dust and asbestos. It can also be used in copper recovery.
Applications for High-Pressure Dust Suppression Misting systems include:
- Transfer Stations
- Waste Disposal Stations
- Garage Treatment Facilities
- Paper Mills and Woodworking
- Rendering Plants and Animal Disposal Facilities
- Mining and Granite Processing
- Iron and Steel Mills
- Quarries, Power Plants, Coal Terminals, Airstrips
- Grain Terminals and Shipping Terminals
- Government Departments and Agencies
High-Pressure systems can be configured to attack dust at its source and provide blanket coverage of a large area, such as a landfill site. To obtain more information on these applications, please review the data available at www.dustcontrolmisting.com or www.dustcontrol.net.
