In order to meet environmental obligations and aim for better Health of employees by industrial units like Power, cement, Coal, and other continuous process industries, Dust suppression methods become an integral part of plant operations.
There are several methods for dust suppression methods are used in industrial dust suppression systems, including
Water Spraying: Water is the most common dust suppressant and is used in a variety of applications. It can be applied using sprinklers, special spray nozzles, fog cannons, and custom-designed equipment like fog cannon trucks and trailers.
Different types of water spraying include
- Dry fog system with the help of atomizing nozzles
- High-pressure misting system
- Fog Cannons
- Rain guns using a sprinkler system
Chemical Suppressants: Dust suppressants and chemicals like calcium chloride, magnesium chloride, and potassium acetate can be used to bind the dust particles together and prevent them from becoming airborne, especially for PM 10 and PM 2.5 dust which is very harmful to the human as well as the environment.
Vegetation: Planting vegetation in and around areas that are prone to dust can help to stabilize the soil and reduce dust emissions. Selecting the right type of plantation is necessary for effective dust control.
Fencing and Windbreaks: Physical barriers such as fencing (shade nets or permanent barriers) and windbreaks can be used to reduce the amount of dust that is created and prevent it from being carried away by the wind.
Earth Surface Treatment: Surface treatment such as paving, gravel, or asphalt can be used to reduce dust emissions from unpaved roads and other surfaces.
Dust collection systems: These systems are used to capture dust before it is released into the air, and include cyclones, bag houses, and electrostatic precipitators.
It's important to note that the selection of the dust suppression method depends on the specific dust problem and the location. A combination of methods may be necessary to effectively control dust emissions.
