Stockpile dust suppression has been dramatically simplified with the I-CAT retractable stockpile dust ring (R-SDR) system, which efficiently addresses dust issues at conveyor discharge points.
I-CAT technical manager, Morne van Wyk, explains that the R-SDR system creates a virtual curtain around material flow for outstanding particle containment. “Engineered to industrial strength and longevity, the R-SDR system surrounds the discharge flow on all sides, providing simple, focused dust management that is well suited to continuous duty applications, such as radial stackers.”
The R-SDR system boasts a stainless steel misting ring designed for mounting at the end of conveyor belts. A variable configuration allows nozzles to be added, removed or replaced with different types and sizes to suit specific applications.
Van Wyk continues: “Thanks to variable particle sizing (VPS) technology, it also features a number of customisable options. It is an intrinsically safe, mounted option, with a fully retractable and serviceable configuration for ease of access, installation and nozzle maintenance.”
The PLC-controlled system consumes low amounts of water and a booster pump can be added to increase water flow and pressure.
