Dust in bulk solid materials including plastic resins, minerals, metal ores, aluminum chips, tablets, granular foods, and others may cause environmental hazards, housekeeping concerns, or reduced quality in the end product. Therefore, the removal of dust and other contaminants is an important part of the material handling process. The DeDuster removes dust and other particles, reducing contaminants to a low level. The DeDuster is wear-resistant and can be used for all kinds of abrasive material. The photo shows a wear-resistant DeDuster used for cleaning iron ore or minerals. DeDusters are commonly installed at the end of the conveying line before packaging or bulk loading. Models are available in a variety of sizes for small to large scale applications ranging from 200 to 1 million lb/hr.
