Dust suppression has become a “must have” rather than a “nice to have” in order to comply with health & safety and air quality regulations that is set through legislation.
- Water is the most commonly used suppressant but is very limited in its effectiveness.
- By adding various additives to water, we are able to increase the wetting ability of water to effectively suppress dust.
- I-CAT, through our unique environmentally friendly products, can not only assist in dust control but also take a holistic view of our client’s challenges and advise them on products and processes to become environmentally compliant.
More than just reaching legislative milestones, dust is a pervasive problem. It undermines the health of people, reduces the lifespan of machinery and has a negative impact on the environment. It can damage the most sophisticated equipment and technology. It’s therefore imperative for industries to effectively control dust on a continuous basis.
I-CAT has formulated and developed innovative and affordable dust suppression products for an effective and durable method of controlling dust. Products to assist with surface stabilization and significant water use reduction for an exceptional economical overall cost.
The disadvantages of using water only for dust suppression
The process of using only water to control dust is a never-ending expensive task that offers very limited dust suppression capability. The futility of wasting time, money, and precious water resources is increased as the water quickly evaporates and dust is again released into the environment. People and animals are forced to inhale the contamination, equipment becomes clogged, damaged and dirty, and traffic safety is sacrificed. Working and living environments should not be subjected to this hazard, particularly at a time when environmental and health & safety agencies are becoming more aggressive in the enforcement of stricter legislation on compliance with PM10 dust standards. Fighting dust pollution with plain water is a wasteful out-dated method of dealing with a problem that can be easily and less expensively solved with the application of our products.
