Martin Engineering: Controlling Fugitive Dust at Limestone Conveyor Transfer

Barnetby, UK — A global provider of quicklime and chalk products has resolved a significant fugitive material problem by implementing state-of-the-art containment and dust suppression on one of its primary limestone conveyors. After finding that an estimated 10 to 20% of the material load was spilling along the belt path, Singleton Birch implemented a control strategy from Martin Engineering that included a rebuilt transfer point as the material takes an approx. 6 metre (20-foot) drop from one belt to another.

Pelletron DeDuster

The Problem: Resin with dust and streamers causes defects in end products

The Solution: The DeDuster®
– Electromagnetic coil reduces the static bond between fine dust and pellets
– Pellets are fluidized over wash deck
– High velocity counterflow air in the venturi zone washes dust and streamers off of pellets
– Dust and streamers are sent to the dust collector with cleaning air
