Dust Suppression Hopper Reduces Hazards

April 3, 2014

The dust suppression hopper is installed under a feed point where it can be suspended above the target and kept at operating level. A small degree of natural agitation as the hopper is filled helps exclude air from the material being transferred. At the point of loading, or transferal, the DSH system concentrates the discharge of dry goods as a solid column through free air into any target repository including trucks, rail cars, storage containers, bags, or stockpiles. Previously, trucks taking on a load literally disappeared in the dust cloud. Uncomplicated to install and easy to operate, the DSH system will reduce hazards and health risks, dust, and wastage. It is robust and easy to operate and maintain.
