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 […]

Custom-Engineered Transfer Chutes: Making the Most of Your Material Flow

Posted on October 30, 2019 in Custom-Engineered Transfer Chutes, Flow Control Chutes, and Fugitive Dust Emissions

Your plant likely has its own material handling challenges and demands. In particular, if inefficient mechanical conveying ever becomes an issue, it can result in a lot of extra maintenance; troublesome pluggage, spillage and fugitive dust emissions; and potential damage from loading impact. All of this creates mounting O&M costs while raising risk and wearing […]
