What is dust suppression?

Dust suppression is the process of controlling and reducing the generation and spread of dust particles in various environments. Particles of dust can be generated from a wide range of sources, including industrial activities, construction sites, mining operations, agricultural processes, and natural phenomena like wind erosion.

Dust control techniques are employed to minimize the negative impacts of dust. These can include health hazards, environmental pollution, reduced visibility, equipment malfunction, and safety hazards. These techniques aim to either prevent the formation of dust or mitigate its dispersion.



There are several methods commonly used for dust control and suppression:

GSIM series

  • Pneumatic nozzles are capable of dust suppression without significantly wetting the environment.
  • The GSIM series sprays droplets the size of 40 – 80 µm in large volume swiftly. This can be referred to as “fine fog”.
  • Full cone spray pattern and large turn-down ratio.

Dust control with AKIMist® “E”

  • AKIMist “E” sprays a “dry fog”. The droplets are so small ( 7.5 μm). that they bounce back without wetting any surface.
  • The AKIMist “E” can spray the dry fog over a distance of 4 meters from each nozzle. This way one unit can cover a large area or room.
  • Dust can be suppressed and controlled by installing AKIMist “E”.

Dust control with BIM

  • The BIM series is a series of hollow cone and pneumatic spray nozzles.
  • BIM series nozzles can control dust by creating a “fog curtain” around it.
  • Produces fine atomization with a mean droplet diameter between 10 – 100 μm.
