Eight steps for designing a dust control system and estimating its cost
Estimating costs is part of designing a dust control system. Careful planning during the design process will not only ensure that you design an effective dust control system, but help you develop an accurate cost estimate. This article discusses eight steps for designing a dust control system and accurately estimating the system's cost.
Most dry solids processing operations generate dust, typically at transfer points such as packaging stations where drums, bags, and totes are filled or unloaded and near belt and screw conveyor loading and unloading points. Dust is also generated by equipment such as crushers and ball mills, vibrating screens, blenders, and scales.
