Dust collection & air pollution control for powder and bulk solids handling operations
Many bulk material handling systems generate dust. Even dusty foodstuffs may be a health hazard. Such dust can damage the lungs and, when suspended in the air in the correct ratios, many organic materials are an explosion risk. Therefore dust collection, air filtration, cleaning up of spilled or settled dust, and the right choice of air handling equipment are essential considerations for any bulk materials storage, handling, or processing operation. This Technology Zone offers an insight into the latest innovations in dust collection systems and air pollution control system design.
