New dust-suppression system now available across full range of Terex Materials Processing brands
TEREX have introduced ‘Aquamist by Terex’ – a new dust-suppression system that is now available across the company’s various materials processing brands: EvoQuip, Fuchs, Powerscreen, Terex Ecotec, Terex Finlay, Terex MPS and Terex Washing Systems.
The ‘Aquamist by Terex’ dust-suppression system is said to offer an improvement over conventional jets or water-sprays to manage the build-up of dust and better protect workers on job sites. It uses a high-capacity misting fan to produce finely divided water droplets in the 10- to 150-micron diameter size range. At this size, the droplets easily combine themselves with dust particles of similar dimensions and precipitate them out of the atmosphere and, because water mists ‘float’ more than a conventional spray, they cover and envelop the dust cloud more effectively.
Paul Kearney, vice-president of parts and solutions for Terex Materials Processing, explained: ‘It is globally accepted now that airborne dust that is formed on job sites can significantly contribute to respiratory illnesses. As increased legislation comes into place globally to mitigate this, more effective control of dust is needed. Our Aquamist system will better support worksite operations and strengthen our commitment to making the workplace a safe and healthy environment.’
