The unloading process from wagons, trucks and dumper trucks generates a large dust cloud very quickly due to the speed and volume of material flow. The finer and dryer the material the more airborne dust is generated.
The dry fog dust suppression system is very effective at suppressing and controlling the airborne dust, even with materials that cannot accept a large percentage of moisture. For example, limestone, gypsum, etc.
Mounting dry fog or air atomising nozzles around the receiving hopper or area where material is to be unloaded creates a blanket of fog and mist that controls the uplift of fugitive airborne dust. Over time a noticeable reduction in wasted material will be realised by the conditions of the surrounding buildings and equipment.
