Control of Dust and Odour with the Renby MicronFogTM System
Over the last 10 to 15 years, many improvements have been made in the reduction of dust in the environment. To this end, we have supplied many kilometres of Traffield Conveyor Covers during the last decade.
The Schrage Tube Chain Conveyor has also made a major contribution to the reduction of dust in factories.
A new technology is emerging that is proving very effective at combatting fugitive dust - fogging systems. It is both economical and effective to use. Many new users are greatly surprised by its performance which often exceeds expectations.
- Fogging systems are proven to be an effective method for:
- dust suppression
- dust abatement
- odour control
- special effects
Renby is delighted to present our comprehensive and economical MicronFogTM range of Fogging System products. For more information, visit our MicronFogTM Fogging System website
Using a simple pressurised water supply, the Renby MicronFogTM System is far less expensive to operate and maintain than compressed air injection fog systems.
The systems are designed for both interior and exterior applications and can be used for removal of workplace related odours.
How The Renby MicronFog System works
The Renby MicronFogTM Fogging System works as follows: Water is pressurised to high pressures in the region of 70 Bar. This is then fed through specially designed nozzles. Inside the nozzle is a tiny impeller that rotates to break up the water and produces a high concentration of 10 to 12 micron fog droplets.
This size water droplet (10 - 12 millionths of a metre in diameter) optimally suppresses respirable PM 10 and smaller dust particles. Small particles of dust adhere to the fog droplets. As these grow, their weight increases such that they then fall out of the air. The water droplet size is critical - much larger - and smaller dust particles will bounce off the surface tension of the droplet.
The systems can effectively remove breathable and fugitive dust in the range 0.1 to 1000microns. Importantly, in the increasingly complex legal environment, Renby MicronFog Systems meet or exceed the EPA PM 10 standards for dust suppression.
