Mining and Silica Dust Control Systems
Coal mining operations can generate significant amounts of airborne respirable coal dust, the inhalation of which can lead to pneumoconiosis, a disabling and potentially fatal lung disease. In metal, nonmetal, stone, sand, and gravel mining operations, and for select occupations in coal mines, the generation of respirable silica dust during mining is the primary concern. Inhalation of excessive levels of silica dust can lead to silicosis, another disabling and potentially fatal lung disease.
Air Purification, Inc. understands and acknowledges the dangers that accompany work in mining operations and other industrial settings. This is why we offer the highest-quality mining dust control systems to keep you and your workers safe.
Mining & Silica Dust Collection Options
Air Purification, Inc. will work to help you determine the best dust collection solution for your mining operations. Acceptable mining and silica dust control systems include:
- Bag Filtration: Possibly the most common type of filtration system for dust collection. The dust is gathered within the bag, which can then be disposed of or emptied out. Alternatively, materials caught in the bag can be reused for later production needs.
- Cartridge Filtration: These are designed to be more easily replaceable than other types of filters. It is composed of cylinders that pull the dust in using static energy or a different type of attraction process. This option typically costs less.
- Pleated Filters: A pleated filter allows more surface area to be exposed to the air. These are best used for collecting the finest dust that cannot normally be caught in a filter.
