01 Feb The Practicalities and Economics of Dust Suppression – White paper
Dust is a widely recognised industrial hazard. Capable of forming an explosive cloud, it also presents an inhalation danger
for operational personnel and can create visibility problems. Controlling dust is crucial for health, safety and environmental reasons and may also be driven by economics. Dust spreading through an operating area is lost product and has an associated value. In this paper, Peter Guttridge, chairman of Guttridge, and Ian Walton, chief executive officer at DSH Systems, examine the issue of dust release during bulk material loading, why it happens and the problems it creates.
