DustTamer Wind Screen Systems can significantly reduce air velocities and associated dust generation due to its specially designed porosity. With DustTamer a percentage of wind will bleed through the fabric helping to equalize the pressure differential from one side of the fabric to the other. This equalization of air pressure creates a lee zone on the downwind side of the screen. Solid structures can actually make the problem worse by creating a low pressure zone downwind, allowing air to move from a high to low pressure area, increasing velocities and the amount of airborne particulate.
