Environmental Solution for Mitigating Dust Particle Dispersion in Air
Mining and quarrying activities contribute to dust emissions from periodic explosions and heavy transportation vehicles. Many industrial processes emit particulate matter mainly mineral, metallic and wooden dust. This phenomenon worsens air quality and increases the cases of respiratory ailments like asthma, bronchitis, etc.Construction activities are also one of the major sources of airborne particles. It produces particles like metallic, gravel and concrete dust. In addition, DG sets and loading vehicles around the site emit gaseous pollutants like NO2 and SO2, which can form nitrate and sulphate particles. This attributes to the adverse effects on the health of the workers and residents living in the proximity.
By monitoring particulate matter around mining, quarrying and construction sites, dust impact is quantified. Setting thresholds on the dust levels, relevant alerts can be generated for the authorities and regulatory bodies. The alerts are useful to optimize the dust suppression process and automate the system.
Temperature, Humidity, Pressure
By installing Dustroid around mines, quarries and construction sites, monitoring of suspended particulate matter, i.e. PM1, PM2.5, PM10, PM100 is done in real-time.
The data helps in optimizing the dust-suppression process in case of excessive emissions from the sources.
This data is used to generate alerts and alarms based on the custom threshold set by regulators.
Using such triggers, a pre-existing dust suppression system like Mist cannons, Sprinklers, Mechanical barriers, Dust collectors, Dust Filters, etc. is activated.
The solution ensures that effective alerts are sent to the site contractor and the triggers automate the suppression systems on time. Taking relevant actions on these triggers, dust levels are maintained within the permissible limits for effective environmental regulation.
