Hoses can not produce water droplets small enough to protect workers from respirable & silica dust.
our Hire-Ready highly efficient fog lance
it’s all about the droplet size
Our Fog lances produce atomised mist droplets of 1 to 200 microns averaging at 50-60 microns, which are the correct size when capturing RCS Dust.
Hoses and industrial sprinklers produce water droplets between 2000 and 5000 microns, and although it may look like it is working, the droplets are too big to capture RCS fugitive dust particles and bring them to the ground.
When our Fog Lance with specifically designed nozzles sprays a fog, it binds with the silica dust particles and removes the hazard in the air for effective dust suppression.
- Uses water more wisely, no runoff
- Prevent product over-saturation, which usually results in a sticky muck
- Cost-effective solution, lower labour costs, just connect it and walk away
- Regulated to control both surface dust and airborne particles
- Place in either a permanent or mobile posture
the science of dust control with a fog lance
The Slipstream Effect is the fundamental theory of fog lance dust suppression products. The smaller the droplet, the more likely a dust particle absorption occurs, sending the dust to the ground. A sufficient amount of water and smaller dust suppressant droplets is the secret to amazing coverage.
Due to their higher surface area to mass ratio, smaller droplets have the ability to travel further, which means that air pressure has a substantially stronger influence than gravity in these kinds of dust suppression systems.
Once the minuscule water droplets (1-200 microns) create a thick fog, they trap the dust particles and become heavier, dropping to the ground, removing airborne risks associated with Silica, and providing a solution to your dust problems.
