Dry Fog™ systems utilize compressed air and plain water to produce a very dry fog (1-10 micron droplet size). These ultra-fine water droplets attach (agglomerate) to like size dust particles, particulate matter 10 microns or smaller (PM-10).
Hoppers located near waterways face certain challenges. Regulations often require that no dust or materials from the hopper loading operation enter the water. Areas near waterways often have increased wind conditions that complicate controlling the dust. DSI utilizes it Dry Fog System in conjunction with DustTamer Wind Screen Systems as shown in the photo. The DustTamer fabric screen is installed on the perimeter of the hopper typically on three sides. The fabric serves several purposes:
