How Dust Collection Systems Work in Mines and Quarries

Understanding the full process of dust collection systems in a mining or quarry application can be overwhelming. There are various touch points across the process that help make the whole system complete. Look over our diagram below to see where each solution fits in.

In this example, there are two material handling valves and a dust collector being used. The dirty air is first pumped into a dust collector, like a GPC or S Collector, to increase collection efficiency and reduce maintenance on the baghouse. The collected particulate goes through a Double Dump Valve, which handles bulky material better than rotary valves, and then down the conveyor belt for collection. Simultaneously the clean air stream flows into the baghouse. Then in the baghouse the filtered air is pushed out by a fan and the Vacu-Valve acts as an airlock for any remaining fine free flowing dust particles. The remaining collected dust then travels on the conveyor belt to the storage tank where discharge is controlled by a knife gate valve for manual and pneumatic control.

As identified, each individual piece makes up the entire dust collection system. A missing piece leaves room for error and lowers the overall efficiency.
