Measurement of the efficiency of dust suppression systems.

One of the most difficult things to control pollution through dust suppression systems is to anticipate and measure the efficiency of it, writes Gonzalo Campos Canessa, CEO of TRC, in his Dry Cargo magazine article for the month of May.

His article is based on the methodology developed by TRC for one of his clients, consisting of working based on:

1. The amount of base powder (Cbg) obtained by measuring the amount of ambient dust in the vicinity of the selected transfer point (transfer from conveyor 10E to 10F). Ventilation Systems in normal operation, but with the production systems of the unit grinder and the dust suppression system do not work.

2. The amount of total environmental dust (Cwi) obtained by measuring ambient dust, at the same point as before. The ventilation and production systems of the Unitary Mill in normal operation, but with the Dust Suppression Systems do not work.

3. The remaining environmental dust (Cads) Measured at the same point of transfer with the ventilation, production and dust suppression.

This week we gave service to one of our client's facility at Illinois. This plant has two side-by-side front end loader dumpers and TRC ADS Dry Fog in both of them.

A good example of a new research and development product is what we have called ‘The Road Sprayer’.

This week visiting along with Pimasa, KGHM Franke mine in northern Chile.
This week we have been visiting clients in the Powder River Basin at Wyoming, USA. The PRB Coal is a super dusty material which pollution is well controlled using TRC ADS Dry Fog.
We would like to thanks to all our current and potencial customers who came to visit us last week at our booth at EXPONOR 2019. In the photo from left to right John Manolakis (Quaker), Travis Colson (TRC) & Gonzalo Campos (TRC).
