The Dust Suppression systems apply 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. The Dust Suppression systems employ high-pressure water fogging to produce an ultra-fine fog made up of very small water droplets (less than 10-micron size). in diameter (also known as Dry Fog). Even the tiniest dust particles in the air are absorbed by these tiny water droplets, which then fall to the earth dry. Especially well-suited to dusty settings.
The application of water 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 referred to as a dust suppression system. The fact that the material does not have to be handled again is a key advantage of dust suppression devices. Without the use of extra material handling equipment, the suppressed dust returns to the main body of delivered material and the process. For this purpose, a variety of methods are utilized, ranging from “garden hose” technology to water and surfactant sprays, foam, and fog creation systems. Varied types of dust suppression systems require different amounts of moisture to be added to the material.
There are two types of Dust Suppression Systems: passive and active. Passive systems technologies, such as designed chutes, stilling booths, and massive conveyor enclosures, work without the use of electricity. Passive dust suppression systems are those that are permanently placed and require little or no electricity to operate.
Passive systems, for the most part, do not have any moving parts. To function and remove dust from the air, active systems require electricity. Active dust suppression systems include bag houses, electrostatic precipitators, wet scrubbers, water or chemical dust suppression systems, and fog systems.
The Dust Suppression System is the most modern technology for reducing dust emissions in the environment. Dust suppression improves labor productivity and safety in demolition, mining, crushing, material handling, recycling, waste management, quarrying, and other construction sites. It dramatically clears the air, allowing for improved sight and safer breathing. Even the taste and odor of dust will go. The Dust Suppression Systems will readily eliminate any amount of dust. The technology may be employed in virtually any machine-operated task that produces a significant amount of dust.
Dust management is critical in metropolitan settings to minimize the soiling of the environment and dusty air. The dust suppression systems’ biggest advantages are in exceptionally dusty jobs like demolition and mining. The system is specifically developed to equip hydraulic crushers, pulverizers, and hammers that are used on excavator-based demolition equipment, as well as any other tools and machines that handle dust-emitting materials. For dust suppression, the sector employs antiquated methods such as low-pressure water irrigation systems and electrical charge suppression devices.
Low-pressure versions use a lot of water, making the job site dirty and muddy, while electrical charge systems are generally highly costly, take up a lot of space, and are difficult to use. Dust suppression systems offer new, more efficient alternatives to traditional technologies, resulting in superior outcomes. Effective dust particle binding, small size, and low water consumption, as well as dust suppression targeted to the precise location.
COMPONENTS OF DUST SUPPRESSION SYSTEMS
Fog nozzles to dependably create fog with the proper qualities to catch and settle airborne dust are the main components of your dust suppression systems. Mounting devices for locating nozzles, connecting air and water sources, and protecting nozzles from damage and freezing. Air and water preparation and control mechanisms are housed in hydro-pneumatic control panels, which also distribute the regulated air and water to nozzles.
systems of air and water supply Pumps and tanks for water Compressors and receivers of air Water filtration and treatment devices that are suited for the air and water quality. Electrical control panels are used to contain automation devices and terminals for connecting to the Plant Control systems (PCS) and external system electrical control devices.
Sonic-type air assist nozzles capable of creating water droplets at realistic pressures and flows are used to create fog. These nozzles atomize water by subjecting it to high-frequency acoustic shockwaves produced by compressed air being pushed to sonic velocity through the venturi. The resonator creates a high-energy shock zone by reflecting the shockwave back into itself. A series of liquid ports entering the venturi introduce low-pressure water into the shock zone. The spray properties of the nozzle are essential aspects of the dust suppression systems’ performance and are adjusted by altering air and water pressure. The amount of energy available for atomization is determined by the air pressure. The quality of atomization is determined by the combination of steady water pressure and constant air pressure.
HYDRO PNEUMATIC (SYSTEMS) CONTROL PANELS (SCP)
Hydro-Pneumatic (systems) Control Panels (SCP) are hydro-pneumatic dust suppression systems components. Master systems Control Panels are those panels that incorporate major flow control components. Filtration, pressure control, and other components may be included. Satellite Control Panels (SCP) or Nozzle Distribution Panels are panels that solely feature nozzle distribution and/or secondary control components (NDP). Depending on your application, your systems may have one or more types of panels. The panels are made to promote and simplify maintenance while still ensuring appropriate control flexibility for optimal performance.
FEATURES OF DUST SUPPRESSION SYSTEMS
Humidity is critical in a variety of industries and applications, especially if dust is a concern. In the industrial, production, and process sectors, dust and tiny particulate material in the air is an issue. Dust can be made up of very tiny fibers, real dirt particles, or manufacturing components. Dust is a negative feature of the workplace in many industries, since it may be hazardous to personnel as well as equipment. When machinery is in use, dust causes serious safety dangers in particular sectors.
To maintain the workplace safe and compliant with rules and standards, it’s critical to utilize the proper dust suppression systems. Dust suppression systems work on the premise that microscopic, micron-sized water droplets are absorbed by airborne dust particles. These heavier, wet dust particles then fall to the ground and settle on top of the earth. When nozzles are positioned appropriately in relation to the source of airborne dust particles, heavier particles fall back down into the process material, decreasing dust from cycling around the facility substantially.
High-pressure fog is used in dust suppression systems to capture and regulate dust particles that escape during processing. The dust particles are subsequently pushed back to the floor by the fog, which removes them from the air and eliminates worries about dust inhalation and pollution. Dust management solutions from Fogo are available for both indoor and outdoor work situations. Dust suppression systems are utilized in industrial work situations to safeguard employees’ health and safety while also controlling dust pollution at building sites and other comparable locations.
To safeguard the environment and the public’s health, a dust suppression spray system gathers and captures airborne dust particles created by cement, steel, and other manufacturing processes and returns them to the ground. Industrial employees and the environment are both at risk if this precautionary action is not taken. When coal dust from the mining sector is not adequately regulated, it can induce black lung disease in miners. An industry may substantially cut emissions and employee health concerns by simply utilizing dust control spray on a regular basis.
Air pollution levels at most building sites are frighteningly high. Construction and demolition zones are infamous for high amounts of airborne dust. Dust particles in the air make it risky and difficult to operate construction equipment properly, much alone breathe. Dust suppression systems provide a construction dust management system to fit your demands, whether your work site is restricted to a small space or spans a big region. Mining is, without a doubt, a dangerous business.
Active mines are known to cause health problems in employees who are exposed to a lot of mine dust in the air for lengthy periods of time. Dust suppression systems, fortunately, can capture dust in the air, making working conditions safer and more controllable for miners.
