DustTamer Wind Fence Systems are typically located on the upwind side of the area you want to protect. DSI can help you decide the most effective location for your fence. Please review our Data Collection Guide, located as a downloadable PDF under the Media tab.
DustTamer wind screens and fences exert a drag force on the oncoming wind velocities allowing a portion of the wind volume to penetrate or bleed through the screen and deflecting the remainder of the wind around the sheltered area. This lowers the velocity below the point required to initiate particle movement. Typically, the fence or screen is located on the upwind side of the area you want to protect, creating a wind protected or lee zone downstream.
