Dust-Free Future for Mining

In the ever-evolving realm of the mining industry, Promet stands at the forefront of innovation, presenting a groundbreaking solution transforming bulk material handling – the Waterless Dust Suppression System. This state-of-the-art technology eliminates traditional water-dependent systems.

The Dust Dilemma: A Comprehensive Challenge

Bulk material conveyance often brings forth many challenges, with dust-related issues affecting the operational process and the overall well-being of the environment. Traditional water spray systems introduce a host of problems:

  • Corrosion Woes: Water-based systems contribute to the corrosion of conveyor structures, escalating maintenance and replacement costs.
  • Belt Wear and Tear: The presence of water results in more grit and sludge accumulation on belt scrapers, hastening wear and tear on conveyor belts.
  • Operational Hassles: Long pipe circuits required for water distribution are prone to issues, requiring frequent leak inspections and labour-intensive maintenance.

Unveiling the Technology: Electrostatic Dust Suppression Systems

Mode of Operation
The electrostatic dust suppression systems are installed at the chute outlet directly on top of the conveyor belt. The dust and bulk material passes through the housing, where airborne dust particles get charged and collected on the stainless steel housing. Intermittently, a vibrator shakes the housing, causing the dust to fall back into the material stream.

Fields of Application
The systems are versatile and suitable for nearly all bulk materials in various industries, including mining, quarrying, steel, cement, fertiliser, foundries, and more. They can also be adapted to mobile screens and crushing units in quarries, mines, open pit, and underground operations. However, it's crucial to note that they must not be used on explosive or flammable dust materials.

The principle of operation is based on a precipitator, involving four steps: generating free electrons, ionising the gas, charging the dust particles, and collecting the dust particles at the collector surface.

The dust suppression efficiency depends on several influences, primarily the electrostatic properties and velocity of the dust. Considering this, Promet provides a system designed and calculated for every application.

Promet's Waterless Dust Suppression System comes with a myriad of advantages:
  • Guaranteed dust suppression rate
  • Low operating cost
  • Extremely low power consumption
  • Minimal maintenance (no extra downtime required)
  • No water required
  • No change in material properties
  • No loss of material
It has developed electrodes designed to demand and range from low to nearly no maintenance to ensure guaranteed dust suppression results. This commitment to innovation underscores Promet's dedication to providing effective, efficient, and sustainable solutions for the mining industry.
