Dust Limits Air Quality & Productivity – Did you know DUST CONTROL is a legislative requirement?

The perfect, ideal bulk materials handling operation yields optimal site availability and productivity with conveyor belts moving constantly, efficiently, with minimal shutdowns and maintenance.

In reality, this ideal scenario is not always possible, with the generation and presence of DUST having negative impact on air quality & productivity!  Most of this dust originates from transfer points, discharge points and high impact load zones, with spillage also a leading cause of wastage and inefficiencies.

What we know today and in recent news reports, is that uncontrolled airborne dust poses a risk to personal safety when inhaled, the potential to cause damage to plant & equipment as well as hazardous to the environment is very real.  Conducting maintenance clean up of dust pre or post production/processing, i.e separating both functions can ultimately help to limit dust exposure and effectively take away the personal safety risks of dust exposure & inhalation.

Conveyors are the principal dust carriage and facilitator of dust movement

The issue of material carryback is also common within bulk materials handling operations, often leading to serious productivity problems and increased dust pollution if not identified early and left unattended.

Installing Conveyor Primary Belt Cleaners are effective measures in controlling and reducing the amount of material carry back and dust contaminants.
