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.
A chemical company produces and processes photoinitiators. In order to prevent contaminated air from escaping from the process circuit due to a filter failure in the exhaust air cleaning system, the company installed SWR engineering‘s Dusty Ex filter monitoring system.
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
Dust — billions of tons of it rises annually into the air. It smothers, clogs, dulls, and pollutes. Reducing dust levels at a bulk material handling operation is a requirement driven by a combination of environmental, operational, employee and community expectations.
Dust — it pervades all earthly things and the deepest recesses of space. We battle domestic dust, atmospheric dust, saw dust, road dust, industrial dust, coal dust, and mineral dust. Billions of tons of it rises annually into the air. It smothers, clogs, dulls, and pollutes.
