When material transfers from a conveyor belt or hopper to a conveyor belt, it is crushed under its own weight and exposed to airflow, creating opportunities for dust. Dust creates a harmful environment for those working around it, environmental concerns, and increased scrutiny from neighbors. OSHA and MSHA have targeted efforts accompanied by steep fines to reduce dust. Most facilities don’t fully understand the underlying issues causing dust and therefore, don’t know how to properly solve it. Many facilities focus on dust suppression and collection which are advantageous but it is more beneficial to focus on dust containment. Dust should be controlled at its source of creation. Control dust at the transfer point by controlling the air associated with the material being transferred. By controlling the air, dust is therefore controlled.
