Dust Monitoring

Dust monitoring is the first step in the control of workplace dust. Do you monitor for dust, do you control dust. Odour and Dust Solutions can now offer their selection of dust monitoring equipment in conjunction with Turnkey Instruments.

Sample of Equipment

The Dustmate is our Hand Held Portable monitor ideal for short term sampling. Highly effective for monitoring air quality within buildings and clean rooms. It can be used via a battery pack but can also be powered via the mains lead. The Dustmate can also be used outdoors weather permitting as a roadside indicator to identify high pollution vehicles.

The Osiris is a portable/fixed monitor which can be used to study short or long term hotspots. Powered by either mains or its internal battery, the Osiris can be used effectively to determine exedance areas.

The Topas is a fixed station monitor intended for long term installation. Several sites can be networked together using modems and are controlled by a central PC to form a city wide monitoring system.

Solutions for Dust

Once you have established if you require to control any issues then Odour and Dust Solutions will be able to advise you on the best way to bring you back into the working regulation levels.

Waste transfer stations, quarries, mines or construction sites all produce a certain amount of dust as they say prevention is better than cure but this is only possible once you understand to what level of exposure you have.

The use of extraction systems can be good at point source but do have drawbacks and you still have they system creating dust. Suppression system are good for external areas where you ban atomise droplets to bring down or hold down dust particles. Every situation may require a different plan of attack to reduce any issues.

Odour and Dust Solutions can now offer the first step of monitoring for the dust problem, once the levels are established, a solution can be applied if it is required.

We have can provide static or mobile odour control using a standard atomiser or a system designed for your operation. Following a site survey we can provide you with the correct kit.

Static atomisers are ideal for odour control in recycling or composting sheds. We provide the size of unit suitable for your operation, and these can be fitted to the existing building structure. Height and flow rate will be adjusted according to the odour problem being tackled. As the distributor of Idrotech high pressure nozzle systems we ensure the correct amount of droplets at the right pressure are directed at your odour source. Control panels can be fitted wherever convenient for your operators.

For mobile odour control, our units can be deployed anywhere, run on the mains or powered by their own diesel engine. The bowser holds enough fluid to run for 8 – 24 hours – depending on spray rate – without needing a refill.

Whether you need a static or mobile odour control system neutralising products are added to the liquid to ensure your operations are odour free. We use Neutrador, a non toxic and biodegradable odour neutraliser which can even be supplied in a choice of three citrus fragrances.

Dust suppression on site

For example, the Elefante is the ideal kit for suppressing quarry dust as it can shoot billions of liquid droplets up to 60 metres high and give all round coverage by rotating 360o. For demolition sites, we have mobile atomisers ideal for positioning on site to bring dust down out of the air. These units can be run on electricity or petrol/diesel and handled by just one worker – for easy and economic operation, as well as removal from site at night to prevent theft. For larger jobs the Idrotech Rino provides a heavier duty spray reaching a longer distance.

Dust control by Odour and Dust Solutions

If your business causes dust, Odour and Dust Solutions have dust control systems that enable you to prevent problems. Whether you need to eliminate dust nuisance from quarry operations, a waste site or demolition job, our dust control solutions can help. We can prevent dust nuisance or health hazards to neighbouring residents and businesses, as well as protecting your employees on site.

The right dust suppression systems will dampen down problems, and avoid your neighbours complaining to you, or calling in the councils’ environmental health officers or the Environment Agency.  Controlling dust also makes sure you are able to provide a healthy working environment for all your employees – whether staff or sub contractors. What’s more, it prevents expensive dust damage to on site equipment. Here we give you an overview of the standard and bespoke dust control systems we use – with a focus on quarry operations – that will ensure you prevent your business from causing dust nuisance.  We can provide foam or fog cannons as well as products to keep the dust down wherever it arises.

Foam dust suppression

The application of foam can prevent dust from becoming airborne.  In quarrying operations – where most activity gives rise to dust – this is especially important.  Extraction and crushing are where most dust arises, and the addition of foam to material before crushing and during crushing will prevent particles from becoming airborne.  Foam bubbles work as they are pierced when dust particles collide with them. The dust particles then become wet and too heavy to stay in the air. We manufacture and sell our own in house foam product. This is biodegradable, safe to use and has no adverse effects on the cement making process or concrete bloc production.

Fogging systems

Fogging systems provide very fine pressure sprays that will keep dust down. These are ideal for many situations – in particular quarry dust control. On quarry sites extraction, crushing grinding and transport operations can all generate potential nuisance dust. We have the knowledge to devise the system to optimise your quarry dust control. As the UK agents for Idrotech fogging systems we can supply a unit to suit your unique situation. For example, perfect for quarry dust control is the Elefante, capable of shooting billions of droplets up to 60 metres high and rotating 360o – giving all round coverage to ensure particles are kept on the ground. Other Idrotech models Rhino and Giraffe – are also available from us. All come in both low and high pressure models, and are designed to maximise water flow and droplets – ensuring efficient dust suppression. The systems are also ideal for demolition and waste management sites.

 

Nozzle systems

As Idrotech suppliers we can also customise a mobile or static nozzle system to fit any situation. By adding ODS Dustseal for spraying road ways and stockpiles we optimise quarry dust control on your site.  Whether indoors or outside we can direct the correct amount of dust suppressing droplets, at the correct dilution to maximise dust retention and eliminate your dust problem.

With a variable flow rate and spray of fine 40 micron droplets we minimise wastage of water and chemicals while ensuring your odour source is targeted.  Depending on flow rate our mobile odour control unit can run from 8 to 24 hours without the need for a refill.

You choose the most convenient power source for your site.  As a self contained unit the mobile odour control atomiser can be fitted with its’ own high quality diesel engine or plugged in to the mains.

Static odour control
Where your odour source is static, fixed fan assisted rotary atomisers can control odour indoors or outdoors.  They can be used, for example, in waste transfer stations or composting facilities. These atomisers deliver a very fine mist with added neutraliser or fragrance for odour control and have flow rates varying from 10 to 180 litres per hour.  The atomiser fan heads are fitted at the appropriate height and an oscillation system can be added for coverage of large indoor areas.  Control cabinets for these units are installed at ground level to allow easy maintenance access, with power cables and water input pipes running from the cabinet to the atomiser. (in addition to our wet systems, we can also install Ambion Systems ionisers to control odour in enclosed areas, for example in refuse storage areas ).

Refreshing with fragrance
The spray systems we use can not only suppress odour emissions, but also neutralise obnoxious odours and replace them with sweeter smells. To ensure odour is eliminated we use Neutrador odour neutraliser.
