Case Study: Custom Designed Dust Suppression System Reduces Respirable Dust by 78%

Dust-A-Side have designed, installed, commissioned and are currently fine-tuning a dust suppression system at a mine site preparation plant* in Australia. *The clients’ name has been withheld for confidentiality reasons. About the site At the plant, which is an intrinsic part of a 27,000+ hectare mine site, export-quality hard coking coal is processed and made ready to be loaded onto coal trains for the over 350km trip to the coal terminal.

Using monitoring technology to reduce the cost of haul road ownership

Haul roads can feel like a bottomless pit of expenditure for miners. The trouble with haul roads is that most mines see them as only temporary, or at best semi-permanent. So roads are often built in a hurry, with minimal expertise, and a lot of shortcuts taken to bring them into budget.

How to achieve effective dust control for tailing dams

Achieving effective dust control for tailing dams can be real a headache for mine operators. Control measures not only need to be cost-efficient, but operationally effective too. In this article, we’ll take a look at how to best achieve dust control at tailing dam sites on an ongoing basis.

Preventing dust diseases with dust suppression

One of the biggest hazards for workers across mining, construction and bulk material processing is actually something quite small…fine dust particles. Breathing in dust and long-term exposure to dust has been proven to cause mining related dust diseases that affect the eyes, lungs, throat and even the nervous system.

How to achieve effective dust control in construction sites

Constructions sites of all sizes and types pose a unique set of dust control challenges. There are numerous ways dust can be generated and each dust generation point needs to be dealt with separately. Whenever earth is being pushed around by dozers and graders, the bare earth will inevitably start blowing around in the wind, causing dust and other contaminants to become air borne. At larger construction sites, unsealed dirt roads are an obvious and major contributor to dust.

Why different types of mine roads need different dust control solutions

Achieving an effective and consistent dust management solution for mine roads is an ongoing challenge for mine operators. This is mainly because there is no single product or process that can be used to achieve optimal dust control across an entire mine site. Consider that a typical mine site is made up of both permanent and short term roads, ramps and flat roads, all of which will need to cope with varying types and volumes of traffic. So it stands to reason that a dust control measure which
