Compared to Flow Control Chutes
Flow control chute or passive chute designs can make great improvements in reducing dust levels. However, there are some drawbacks, including cost and available real-estate to locate these types of larger chutes. Reducing air movement and sliding the material onto the belt can drastically reduce dust generation but in many cases finer float dust (PM-10) will still escape out of the conveyor load point area. DSI has provided Dry Fog Systems to remove this float dust from the air on every major manufactures Flow Control Chutes, including Benetechs InteliFlo®, SAS Global and others. In many cases clients might be able to use their existing chute work and install a Dry Fog System on it with only minor skirting modifications, saving a lot of money with the same desired results.
