BWM delivers dust suppression system at Fraser Surrey docks

BWM delivers dust suppression system at Fraser Surrey docks

(Posted on 31/05/24)

Australia based Blue Water Misting (BWM) has delivered and commissioned a dust suppression system at Fraser Surrey docks for DP World ports in Canada. The BWM system creates a barrier of fog over the hatch in bulk loading operation to stop any fugitive dust emissions

Blue Water Misting is a series of spray bars fitted to the hatch of the vessel during bulk loading that provides a curtain of dry fog over the hatch. The dry fog particles collide with any fugitive dust particles causing them to fall back into the hatch. The system protects the nearby environment and workers from pollution

The system was put in place to allow the loading of copper concentrates with traces of silver and gold. This system uses sealed containers and a special Spreader allowing the miner to export with zero losses in the supply chain

“Dust suppression stops pollution in loading but also protects the clients valuable material from losses,” said BWM’s James Davenport.

BWM is designed in Australia and marketed worldwide for use in dust suppression at ports and bulk handling facilities

BWM employ several techniques to reduce dust they include

Dry fog Misting


One way barriers –Flex Flap

BWM uses a patented system of product specific nozzles to control the spray droplet size and distribution. This control allows the droplets to attach to commodity specific particle sizes and drop them out of the airborne environment.

BWM has developed ore specific nozzles for coal, iron ore, mineral sands, copper concentrates and others. BWM provide dust specific suppression system that work more efficiently than a normal dust suppression system and can deliver zero dust at the perimeter of an operation
