Our tailored dust suppression systems and mist cannons prevent and control airborne dust ensuring a safer, healthier work environment.
Dust Control Solutions for Quarrying Operations
A key factor that can impact on the viability and growth of quarry industries is adequate dust suppression. The national exposure standards for atmospheric airborne contaminants placed on workplace, health and safety require that owners and managers must provide a safe and healthy environment for all employees. In addition to health and safety requirements, residential developments are creeping closer to quarry operations, increasing pressure on putting in place effective and efficient dust control measures.
Solving dust problems on quarries and aggregate processing plants is commonly reliant on using alternate dust collection methods. Dust disposal, bag maintenance and freightage create down-time and lower productivity. Water guns, sprinklers and low pressure water sprays over-wet dusty areas and processing equipment, expanding the problem. The benefit for dust suppression using these methods is limited as they are inefficient, and consume high volumes of water.
Dust suppression using water, when applied correctly, has many advantages and far outweigh traditional methods and the associated problems they bring.
CoolMist Systems Australia offers dust control solutions with misting and fogging systems. AJet® Mist Cannons, our large scale dust suppression equipment (also known as fog cannons), are also available in mobile dust suppression units. These dust suppression systems can be adapted to suit any size building, processing equipment or outdoor operations ensuring airborne and fugitive dust particles are dramatically reduced on your site and supporting a healthy work environment for all employees.
Typically, quarry dust particle sizes formed during quarrying processes range from less than 1 micron to over 100 microns. Therefore understanding the particle size, type and quantity of the dust is vital in effective system design.
CooMist Systems Australia’s innovative dust suppression mist systems and AJet® Mist Cannons use far less water than the common spray systems and suppress 50-90% of dust generated.
All our systems are designed to emit high volume mist / fog using an extremely low volume of water. Droplet size is optimised to bind with dust particles, trapping them and cleansing the air.
Open spaces present additional challenges for dust suppression and this is where our AJet® Mist Cannon comes to the fore. Also referred to as fog cannons, these robust and versatile units combine a powerful fan to disperse atomised mist.
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. We have a large range of high pressure misting pumps to give you precise control over each area, delivering as much, or as little fog as is required for your operation.
Our services include supply, installation and commissioning both locally and interstate to help you meet environmental air quality standards and protect workers' health.
