To those who haven’t dealt with the issue firsthand in an industrial or commercial setting, dust may seem like little more than a minor inconvenience or aesthetic eyesore. However, for industrial and commercial companies dust can actually be a very serious and detrimental problem. Consider the following:
Problems Associated with Dust
- Potential health problems
- May damage products, machinery, or equipment
- Creates an unpleasant work environment
- Could contribute to accidents and safety issues
- May violate OSHA regulations
These problems may negatively affect profits and productivity and could damage valuable equipment, materials, or products. Excessive dust could also result in fines and penalties, as well as a poor perception of the dust-infested company by the general public or other companies within the industry. Serious dust problems could even make it difficult for the company to hire and retain talented workers.
Dust Suppression Is the Answer
Dust suppression is the key to solving dust-related problems at industrial and commercial sites. Since dust particles are very tiny and lightweight they float through the air when agitated, resulting in the problems discussed above. An easy, effective solution is to keep the dust from permeating the air by weighing it down and clumping the particles with the use of moisture. This moisture can be delivered and carefully controlled with professionally designed misting systems
