Dry Fog can can reduce dust exposure to workers at dumping and sorting operations. Odors and fugitive dust leaving the site can be reduced or prevented in many cases. DSI has worked on various types of material handling operations where trucks are being unloaded and where sorting of material takes place. Dry Fog wets the airborne dust, not the material.
Dry Fog can effectively suppress the dust at conveyor transfer points, without wetting the material. Unlike dust collection systems, there is no secondary waste stream as we do not collect the dust, but simply "knock down" the airborne dust at the point of creation. Collectors typically deposit concentrated amounts of collected dust back onto the conveyor belt only to create more issues downstream.
Dry Fog works by injecting sub-micron water droplets into the air at the point of dust creation. The fog droplets attach to like size airborne dust particles. The slightly wetted particles agglomerate to other particles, adding sufficient mass to settle the dust back into the conveyed product within the covered transfer point. Use at shredders, screens, compactors, conveyors, sorting devices and dump areas.
