Dust Control Solutions with Mist Cannons.

Solving dust problems on demolition sites, quarries and aggregate processing plants is commonly reliant on hand-held hosepipes and sprinklers to wet down the area in order to suppress dust. However, these systems offer limited benefit in containing surface dust and consume a lot of water and form muddy and boggy conditions, which can transport dust off-site affecting public roads and expanding the problem.  

Dust suppression using water is an important approach and applied correctly the advantages far outweigh traditional methods and the associated problems they bring.  Mist Cannons also referred to as fog cannons, apply atomised mist at high velocities over large areas and are extremely successful at limiting dust lift-off and controlling airborne dust.
 

Water droplet size is critical for effective dust suppression

Effective dust control requires the optimum size water droplets to collide and agglomerate to the dust particles present causing them to fall from the air. When the water droplet diameter is larger than the dust particle diameter, the dust particle will follow the air stream around the droplet and remain in the atmosphere. When both the diameter of the water droplet and the dust particle are comparable, the dust particle will follow the air stream and collide with the droplet removing it from the air.

Most dust formed in Quarries, Demolition and Tunnelling is between 25-500 microns therefore understanding the particle size, type and quantity of the dust is vital in effective system design.

The A-JET® Mist Cannon is an efficient and effective method for large scale dust suppression. These innovative dust cannons use far less water than the common spray systems and suppress 50-90% of fugitive dust generated. 

Designed to emit high volume mist using an extremely low volume of water, the A-JET® fog cannon combines a powerful turbo fan with high launch range from 10 to 150 linear metres and can oscillate 330 degrees. This range allows ground coverage up to 64,700 square metres from a single location. 

Benefits of A-JET® Mist Cannons to your business

High volume fine mist agglomerates with similar size dust particles dropping them from the air
Minimal absorbed power and Low water volume reduces consumption and associated costs
Limit run-off and boggy conditions to ensure a safer and more efficient work site
Water Savings 1:20 Ratio when compared to traditional spraying methods
Proven 50 to 92% suppression of respirable and fugitive dust particles
Eliminates the need to hand-spray debris and the work site, saving personnel costs on these tasks
Employees can focus on more important job specific tasks
Prevent site and demolition rubble from over saturation, saving dollars in trucking weight to landfill
Improves work force safety with an automated remote controlled system
Abide local Council and EPA regulations by significantly reducing dust emitted during work processes    

Dust Suppression Solutions – Tailored for your site

Working with you we will tailor an effective dust mitigating system to your unique site rather than a one size fits all approach. Our A-JET® mist cannon range is available in a basic configuration and upgraded with various components unique to your site requirements.

Robust, versatile with safe and simple operation using remote control the machines are available in a range of sizes and can be adapted to outdoor or indoor dust areas.

Mist nozzles atomise water into billions of micro-fine droplets that readily bond to similar sized airborne dust particles, resulting in extremely effective and efficient dust suppression. In addition, water flow rates can be adjusted to regulate the volume of water discharged from the fog cannon to control both surface dust and airborne dust without saturation problems.

Industry specific case studies show A-JET® mist cannons proven capability to suppress a minimum of 50% to 92% airborne dust.These case studies are available upon request.

Our services include supply, installation and commissioning both locally and interstate to help you meet environmental air quality standards and protect workers' health.
