  • How does dust control with water mist work?

    The most important factor for effective dust control is the water mist. Its function is to wet the airborne dust particles, which become heavier and fall to the ground. At the same time, the water mist moistens surfaces (material as well as the ground), which prevents dust particles from becoming airborne. The amount of water mist is adjusted is adjusted to avoid water accumulation on the ground or make the material too wet.

  • Indoor or outdoor dust control?

    Factors that need to be considered for indoor or outdoor dust control include temperature, wind and amount of water required to effectively control the dust.

  • Is the dust problem at a specific point or over a larger area?

    When choosing dust control equipment it is important to know if the dust problem area is at a specific point or over a larger area.

  • Fixed installation or will the equipment be moved around on site?

    What type of work is carried out at the site and what does it look like in the area near the actual dust source? Wind impact? Machinery, personnel and vehicles in motion? Other possible safety hazards?

    Read the full answer
  • Is electricity and water available at the site?

    When electricity or water is not available in the area where dust suppression is to be carried out, a mobile solution with a water tank and/or a generator is a good solution.

  • How should the equipment be monitored and controlled?

    Factors to consider when choosing a control system include equipment accessibility during operation and workplace safety. In many cases, automated control and monitoring of the entire system using CURT Management software can save costs and increase safety.

  • Why is optimised and effective dust control important?

    Dust creates negative effects for employees, the company and the environment and can lead to serious consequences if dust problems are not addressed properly and in time.

Site visit, problem identification and planning

To make sure we deliver an optimal and sustainable solution we would like to make a site visit early on in the project, where we jointly look at the dust problem, specific requirements and investment objectives.

 

Site visit

A site visit early in the project is important to identify a variety of factors that might affect the selection and size of equipment, and any add-ons to achieve the most efficient and sustainable results. Regulatory requirements are also discussed at this stage.

Another important question is how the machine or system will be monitored and controlled, i.e. manually or automatically. Should it be a fixed installation or should it be possible to move the equipment around as needed?

Problem identification

During the site visit we discuss a number of different issues. Here are few examples:

  • What is the source of the dust? Is it a single point or over a large area?
  • What type and amount of dust does the dust source create?
  • Area near the dust source: Wind impact? Machinery, personnel and vehicles in motion? Possible safety hazards?
  • Is electricity and water available at the site?

Planning

Using the information discussed during the site visit, we prepare a summary that we review with the client to ensure that we agree on the scope of the project.

The next step is to start planning the project in order to propose a sustainable solution. At this stage we are in close contact with EmiControls' technical department, focusing on getting the most efficient system possible, with a low operating cost.

How water mist dust control works

The most important factor for effective dust control is the water mist. Its function is to wet the airborne dust particles, which become heavier and fall to the ground. At the same time, the water mist moistens surfaces (material as well as the ground), which prevents dust particles from becoming airborne. The amount of water mist is adjusted to avoid water accumulation on the ground or make the material too wet.

 

Right droplet size

It is important that the droplets in the water mist are the right size. If the droplet is too large and moves too fast in relation to the dust particle, the dust will not be bound. A smaller droplet moves more slowly and binds the dust much more effectively. Conventional irrigation systems usually create large, heavy droplets, which means that the dust is not bound effectively.

Different types of dust require different sizes of water mist droplets to achieve optimal results. EmiControls' advanced valve technology allows the machines to create water droplets in the range of 10 to 100 µm (ideal for dust control) and the equipment can be configured according to type of dust and operating conditions.

Optimal water mist distribution

Another important factor in achieving a good result is the water mist distribution.

The amount of dust in the air is measured in mg/m³. EmiControls has extensive knowledge and experience in determining the amount of water per cubic metre required to effectively control dust in different environments.

Wind or other air turbulence is another factor to consider when selecting a product or installing the dust suppression equipment on site.

 

Effective dust control - a win-win for employees, the company and the environment

Dust creates negative effects for employees, the company and the environment and can lead to serious consequences if dust problems are not addressed properly and in time.

The right solution with effective dust control leads to

  • Improved health and safety for employees
  • Reduced risk of accidents - collision due to poor visibility, fire, etc.
  • Less wear and tear on machinery, equipment and vehicles
  • Lower clean-up costs
  • Improved air quality at site and neighbouring areas
  • The company complies with applicable laws and regulations

Product development

With a strong focus on R&D, EmiControls has developed innovative technology and has extensive knowledge and experience in creating droplets optimised for effective dust control.

EmiControls develops all its products according to the following criteria:

  • Full control of water flow, throw length and drop size
  • Flexible configuration
  • Low energy consumption
  • Long life span of machinery and components
  • Low maintenance costs
  • User safety
