Reduce dust and odour
Many industrial processes generate significant amounts of dust. Doing nothing is no longer an option as The Environment Agency is increasingly clamping down on factories that are exposing their workforce to high dust levels, especially when silica is involved.
Always the best approach is to reduce dust emissions at source by enclosing the handling of dusts and powders. If dust is being conveyed on a belt conveyor for instance, there are multiple opportunities for dust emissions and spillage. This causes a large cost of housekeeping and in some cases, when dust penetrates bearings, it will reduce machine life.
Schrage Tube Chain Conveyor
By using the Schrage Tube Chain Conveyor, dusty materials are conveyed in a totally enclosed environment, completely eliminating the scope for dust emission and cross contamination with other parts of the process. Using the Schrage tube chain conveyor is one of the most successful methods for reducing dust emissions in your process. Its versatile operation enables it to fit in exactly with the way your process needs to operate.

Renby MicronfogTM Dust Control System
However, it is not always possible to contain dust in this way, so Renby offer another tool to defeat this problem. By using the Renby MicronFogTM system, microscopic water droplets are sprayed into the air, which causes the dust particles to stick to one another, becoming so heavy that they fall out of the air. The Renby MicronFogTM system can be fitted to protect a complete warehouse or nozzles can be fitted to transfer points to eliminate airborne dust at source. Systems can be designed that do not cause any wetting of your product and the system has been used to great effect on dry powder bagging lines.
The versatile Renby MicronFogTM can also be used to eliminate odour. If your process is suffering an odour issue, it is possible to add an odour neutraliser to the fog which reacts with the odour molecules and neutralises their effect.
