Welcome to dust control

The types of dust control systems basic currently used in many processing operations are 

  • Dust collection
  • Wet dust suppression
  • Airborne dust capture

"Dust collection systems use ventilation principles to capture the dust-filled airstream and carry it away from the source through ductwork to the collector.

Wet dust suppression techniques use water sprays to wet the material so that it generates less dust.

Airborne dust capture systems may also use a water-spray technique; however, airborne dust particles are sprayed with atomized water. When the dust particles collide with the water droplets, agglomerates are formed. These agglomerates become too heavy to remain airborne and settle.
