BWM suppresses dust

(Posted on 11/11/19)

An Australian client loading zinc and lead close to residential area has selected Blue Water Misting (BWM) to provide a Dry Fog system for ship Loading.

The system was cost effective and and simple to set up on the ships hatch and was able to suppress all fugitive dust from the loading adding less than 0.25% moisture.

BWM now has systems in Chile (3), Aus (5), Sth Africa (3), Georgia APM, Oman, Peru, USA and Spain.

The systems can be fitted to a Hopper, Ship hatch, Ship loader or a Shed.

Regardless of whether you load with Grab, Ship loader or tippler the process adds energy to the material creating dust.

A BWM system provides a curtain of fog above the hatch which acts as a barrier to any dust escaping.

BWM’s full line of custom services and solutions can: suppresses the dust before it become airborne; provide a specialty dust control system and environmental consulting; and cause no adverse effect on the material treated
