Dust control equipment mainly works as dust collectors to collect dust and other impurities from the air and is widely used in mineral processing industries, pulp and paper mills, steel mills, sawmills, metallurgical plants and other industrial applications that require the handling of dust generated during routine operations. They use inertial, centrifugal and gravitational forces to separate dust from gas streams, forcing dust particles and other particulate matter to move to the least pressurized area for storage. Dust control equipment is most commonly used as air pollution control devices, but they are widely used in metallurgical industries to recover valuable granular particles from the process stream.
Most current models of equipment are based on the principles of fabric filtration, wet scrubbing, electrostatic precipitation, unit collection or inertial separation of dust and impurities, and each type has its own advantages in its niche industry. You can choose dust control equipment based on any of the above principles, depending on the required dust collection scope and the size and nature of the dust particles produced. Typical dust control equipment includes a dust filter, blower, dust removal system and a filter cleaning system and is usually designed to handle large volumes of dust loads.
Dust control equipment is available in a variety of designs and configurations to meet industrial requirements and can be used as free hanging systems, portable collector cabinets or larger fixed units. More advanced models require zero-to-minimal ductwork and eliminate the need for extra ventilation by returning filtered air to the work area. Airflow characteristics and the use of special collector systems play an important role in the selection of dust control equipment. In addition, the dust removal and disposal system used by these equipment also plays an important role in determining their efficiency and effectiveness for use in a target industry.
These devices are equipped with efficient centrifugal or axial flow fans and motor system that ensure the continuous movement of the airflow without producing unwanted vibrations and disturbances due to high noise levels. They are highly efficient when operating within a certain temperature and humidity range of operating conditions and are quite capable of accommodating small fluctuations in total pressure to maintain the desired air volume.
Dust control equipment protects personnel working in a high-risk area from acute and chronic health conditions caused by the constant inhalation of dust, fumes and fumes, as well as reducing fire and explosion hazards and material losses from wind. These highly efficient dust control equipment reduce operating costs by maintaining proper operating conditions to improve production time and prevent premature wear and tear of work equipment.
Most dust control equipment also uses wet suppression for dust control. They use fog collectors to remove dust particles in the form of fine mist to improve the air quality in the work area. These equipment use corrosion resistant building materials and are often painted in attractive hues for added protection. These dust control equipment are available in pleasing, visually appealing designs and are safe to use and easy to maintain.
