How to Prevent Transfer Point Dust: Best Practices for a Safe, Compliant, Profitable Operation

Posted on December 8, 2020 in Dust Control

Production is key at bulk material handling operations, but a consistent problem may be occurring all the while: transfer point dust. Without proper transfer point dust control, what seems like steady production can soon become short lived. Unchecked transfer point dust will increasingly jeopardize safety, equipment maintenance, compliance and profitability. Knowing how and where to […]

Conveyor Dust: Gaining Command of a Runaway Problem

Posted on October 6, 2020 in Conveyor Belts, and Dust Control

Fugitive dust created by the conveyor in bulk material handling can turn into major setbacks if left unaddressed for too long. Production might continue, but it will be increasingly less efficient. Safety and compliance will become greater issues as well. You depend on your conveyor system to ensure exceptional customer service and achieve your operational […]

Conveyor Belt Cleaners

Posted on September 17, 2020 in Conveyor Belts, Dust Control, and Maintenance

Keeping Carryback Out of the Way Consistent production in bulk material handling is best achieved when a conveyor belt is clean and intact so it can continue to perform. Spillage around the head pulley and carryback dust and spillage indicate the belt’s cleaning system is compromised. A worn conveyor belt scraper is often the source […]

Conveyor Belt Spillage: How Do You Control It?

Posted on September 2, 2020 in Conveyor Belts, and Material Handling

Conveyor systems are central to bulk material handling. You depend on them to move immense amounts of product reliably and efficiently to support your production goals. At the same time, if left unchecked, spillage from the conveyor creates operational issues, especially around transfer points. As material falls from the carry side of the belt and […]

Stockpile Sealing and Management

Posted on August 13, 2020 in Dust Control, and Material Handling

How Safe Is Your Stored Material? Stockpiles are an integral part of any bulk material handling system, such that proper raw material can be retrieved for continued production. Stockpile management requires sealing and protecting the piles from moisture; an improved environmental profile; good-neighbor efforts; and, if the material is combustible, inhibiting oxygen. If inactive storage […]

Respirable Silica Dust: How Do You Keep It Under Control?

Posted on July 16, 2020 in Dust Control

Silica (silicon dioxide) is one of the most common elements on Earth. It can be found in two forms, crystalline and non-crystalline. Materials containing crystalline silica are non-hazardous unless agitated, such as by blasting, crushing, chipping and grinding, which can create tiny particles called respirable crystalline silica. In bulk material handling, if a resulting silica […]

Posted on June 30, 2020 in Conveyor Belts, and Material Handling

Cost-Cutting Innovation in the Belt Conveyor Load Zone Most bulk material handlers will experience the challenge of excess spillage and dust in the load zone. This is especially true when a misaligned transfer point chute creates a flawed transition of material onto the receiving belt. Improper or off-center loading can further cause the belt to […]

Total Dust Management: A 360° Approach to a Safer, More Efficient Operation

Posted on May 21, 2020 in Dust Control, Fugitive Dust Emissions, and Material Handling

As a bulk material handler, you want to process the most product in the least time in the safest, cleanest environment. A major obstacle to that goal is spillage and fugitive dust, which create lost product, more maintenance, lost time, and more hazards to both staff and the community. Conquering fugitive dust requires a complete […]
