Las Vegas, Nevada – NESCO’s dust control spray systems can help quarries and recycling plants comply with the visible emission standards of Subpart 000 when installed at strategic locations in crushing and screening plants. NESCO spray systems help prevent companies from receiving costly citations for dust emissions and improve community relations.
The DustPro Spray System uses a high pressure, 200 psi pump capable of reducing dust to compliant levels. The DustPro is electronically controlled from a remote panel in the operator’s booth, can be fully automated, and equipped with air and glycol purge systems for cold weather operation. A DustPro Spray Systems are also available with wireless remote controls to eliminate the electrical cable connecting the remote panel to the pump module.
For smaller processing plants or those on a tight budget, NESCO’s manually controlled DustBoy spray system offers a more economical solution to dust emissions. The DustBoy and DustPro both feature heavy-duty construction with all brass plumbing and stainless steel pumps.
NESCO spray systems are designed to add less than 0.5% moisture, no more than about a gallon per ton, to production materials without the use of expensive chemicals. Effective dust control also helps to keep costly equipment clean, thereby making maintenance easier and eliminating unnecessary wear and tear on machinery.
Effective dust control also improves working conditions. MSHA has adopted more stringent standards for silica containing dust, a known carcinogen, in recent years. Companies that make the investment in dust control equipment find that employees work more efficiently in a clean environment, which translates into improved productivity. By implementing best management practices to control emissions, companies also reduce the likelihood that employees will suffer from the long-term health effects of exposure to silica.
