Dust Suppression on Ports
Loading and un-loading grains occurs at all of our major ports around the country. Just by the very nature of the product and the process, this generates a large amount of dust. This dust is an environmental nightmare for the ports authorities, the bulk handling companies & the owners of the grains. To further complicate matters dust particles are more than just dust. Each different grain product has completely different dust properties, some are heavy, some are light some are small and some are large particles, some float and some sink. All in all it is a very messy & difficult issue to solve.
The EPA is extremely strict on the dust issue and has the power to remove licenses from the ports operators if correct measures are not taken. A simple solution to this problem is required and this is where PR Power has the innovation, expertise and equipment to provide a total turnkey solution for the dust issue.
The PR Power PR50-DF Dust Fighter is capable of putting out a very fine mist up to 50m in radius whilst being able to rotate up to 350deg (or smaller if required). Having been awarded the “European Rental Product of the Year 2010” the unit is a well tried & proven solution. However, just supplying a PR50-DF is not enough to solve this problem, with sea winds capable of changing direction quickly and without notice. A single unit will take a considerable amount of labour to move into position as the wind changes, so workers utilise multiple units on ports to provide dust suppression from any wind direction quickly and without the need to relocate the units.
The PR50-DF Dust Fighter requires a 3 phase power supply and a readily available water supply to operate with PR Power supplying the hoses, fittings, cables and cable covers for mechanical protection as part of the package deal. This ensures the customer has no need to be concerned over what is required for the job; it’s all supplied for them.
PR Power has the expertise, knowledge and equipment to successfully control dust emissions not only in port applications but also a range of other applications including quarries, mines and landfills.
