Industrial Dust Control
There are a large number of industrial processes whose dust emissions are regulated including earthmoving and excavation, crushing and milling operations, material handling, cement manufacture, recycling and demolition, as well as power generation.
One of the reasons that require dust emissions to be controlled are the health effects. Dusts can cause a variety of diseases, not only to those who are working in dusty environments on a daily basis but also for those who reside around mines and factories that produce dust emissions. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is the federal agency responsible for ensuring that workers at non-mining facilities are protected from exposure to dusts.
How to Control Industrial Dust
NESCO's Dust Control Solutions; high pressure spray system controls visible emissions, keeps dust out of the neighborhood and away from your workers.

Guaranteed to comply with SubPart 000 or other applicable NSPS. Available in 10 to 100 gpm capacities.
Features: Smaller crushing or recycle plants processing less than 500 tph. Pumps include a strainer, TEFC motor, and Nema 4X control panel. Available in 10 or 20 gpm capacities, manually controlled.
Risks of Poor Industrial Dust Control
Dust is known to aggravate a number of lung diseases including pneumonia, asthma and emphysema.Dusts containing asbestos or asbestiform particles are extremely hazardous. Once a common additive to insulation and building products, the use of asbestos has been banned in the U.S. and is no longer mined in N. America. Asbestos causes mesothelioma, a particularly deadly disease for which there is no cure. Even a brief exposure to asbestiform dust can be fatal to susceptible individuals.
Fine respirable particulate has been linked to higher death rates. Most of the hazardous particulate present in the atomosphere is not dust but soot produced by combustion processes. Exhaust from trucks, buses and cars as well as coal and other fuel combustion for power generation are the largest sources of man-made particulate. Volcanic activity and forest fires are examples of a natural phenomona that produce large amounts of respirable particulate
So how can industrial dust be controlled? There are many different systems that are used to control the dust inside of factories and other industrial locations. The majority of systems use some sort of wet suppression system, in which a spray is used in order to control the visible dust produced by processing and material handling operations. These systems generally use a form of high pressure spray or water and compressed air in order to suppress respiratory dust. It is important to install them into industrial situations before a job gets underway so to protect people from health issues.
