Dust and Odour Suppression

Spill Response Expo blog post 1

It is now mandatory to address the issues of dust and odours, for the protection of staff and neighbours.

Historically air extraction/ negative pressure, was the accepted method of dragging dust and odours out of the buildings,   but this in many cases exacerbated the problem, as dust being formed in one area was dragged across the building past all the operatives towards the extraction vents, subjecting the occupants to constant flow of dust, odours, Mesophilic Bacteria (MB) and respirable silica.

Fast closing doors were used   to prevent dust and odours escaping, but these were vulnerable to damage and expensive to repair.  However now, with an efficient dust suppression system, there is no airborne dust or odours to escape through the doors.

Mist-Air Dust Suppression systems blows dry fog into the areas where the dust is being created, preventing it from becoming airborne, but without wetting the floors, stock, machinery or personnel.

Not only is this a far simpler and more effective method of dust and odour control, it is also far less expensive to install, run, and maintain, and can be simply retro fitted to any size building or areas in a few hours.

The ultrafine dry fog is blown towards the dust by silent fans installed on the roof girders, clear of working machinery and vehicles.

Low water and power usage keep running costs extremely low.

This  is the most effective way to suppress   PM10s   and PM 2..5 s  and also has the capacity to capture airborne gases far more efficiently than systems producing  coarser droplet of water, like rotary atomisers, lines of jets spraying water from  the roof, or fog cannons  as all  these systems wet floors ,stock machinery and personnel,  below them.

Dry fog is the only instant effective way to remove airborne dust.

Mist-Air has been successfully installed throughout Europe in every type of recycling process.
