How they work
Low pressure systems use “street” pressure and/or a booster pump to deliver water through nozzles at an operating pressure below 100-pounds per square inch (psi). At this pressure, the water is delivered at a higher flow rate than a high pressure system and the droplet size is significantly larger (average 50-microns).
What they do
Low pressure systems provide dust suppression to nuisance type dust emission facilities (aggregates operations and stockpile locations). These types of systems work best with larger dust particles.
Where they fit
Low pressure systems are typically found in industrial facilities within buildings and mounted on portable equipment. Low pressure systems use large amounts of water and require a significant amount of space to house the associated equipment.
Why to use
To control fugitive dust emissions relative to “nuisance” dusts.
Coverage and flow
The coverage area per system is variable. Air One can design a system that will treat dust emission source points and/or your entire facility. Depending on the water pressure and nozzle specification, typical systems range in flow rates from 3-gallons per minute up to 15-gallons per minute.
