What Is Dust Control Used for with Water?
Wet systems are often used for dust prevention or suppression in construction. Humidity or moisture content is added either to the material to avoid dust from becoming airborne or to the air to capture particles of dust that are already airborne.
Our wet systems make use of spray nozzles in applying water to dust particles. Of course, the system configuration depends on the goal, whether it is for prevention of dust or suppression of airborne dust. Usually, operations need both prevention and suppression to control dust effectively.
Operations That Commonly Require Dust Prevention:
- Stockpiling or Reclaiming
- Transfer Points
- Vineyard or Orchard Development
- Vineyard or Orchard Management
For these applications, moisture is applied to the material when it’s either stationary or moving.
Operations That Commonly Require Airborne Dust Suppression:
- Continuous mining
- Crushing and Screening
- Transfer Points
- Packaging or Filling
In these processes, drops of water collide with particles of dust that are already airborne. The moisture then weighs the particles down, returning the material to the ground.
