A prominent iron ore mine in Australia faces the challenge of processing a staggering 50 million tons of material annually. In response to significant dust concerns raised by the state regulator, the mine sought an effective solution for addressing these issues. DSI, a renowned provider of dust control solutions, was engaged to devise strategies for tackling the dust problem across the large ROM bins, primary crusher, transfers, and stacker.
DSI delivered a cutting-edge solution by designing a specialized manifold system that generates a dry fog over the open feed hopper. This innovative approach effectively controls the dust plume, as demonstrated in the accompanying videos. Moreover, for the stacker, DSI achieved remarkable success by implementing a NESCO water spray system, using high pressure misting and sprays, clearly depicted in the videos. These robust solutions have provided this iron ore mine with comprehensive dust control and mitigation measures.
