Air Pollution can be Effectively Tackled Using Dust Control Technology

According to MedlinePlus, air pollution is a mixture of particles and gases in the air. Car emissions, chemicals from factories, dust, pollen and mold spores may be suspended as particles. If there is one thing everyone builder, miner, demolition contractors, and other professionals dislike the most, it is dust caused while working. Demolition and building projects involve a lot of dust and other airborne particles; these particles (dust) cause air pollution and the danger involved cannot be overemphasized. The airborne particles are dangerous to your health and need to be curtailed. This is why EnviroHandling is here.

EnviroHandling—Haven of Dust Control Technology

At EnviroHhandling, there are many dust control technologies to help your company getting rid of air pollution and help controlling the air quality providing a safe working environment. Some of the dust suppression equipment are:

1.    Fog Cannon

Fog Cannon is one of the most important dust control devices to tackle air pollution: it is effective against the particles produced by mining, materials handling, and demolition projects. This is a dust control machine by HKD Blue that can generate an atomized mist of appropriately sized droplets to effectively capture dust while using less water. With remote control configuration, on-site managers can easily adjust the nozzle spray pattern and direction at the push of a button, saving labor costs while limiting worker exposure to potentially harmful dust and debris.

Apart from limiting several inconveniences to the surrounding environment that are brought by the emission of fine dust, avoiding potential disputes with public authorities, another significant advantage of the Fog cannon in tackling air pollution.  Also, the HKD BLUE’s Fog Cannon has a reduced level of water consumption which is considerably lower when compared to the amount of water needed while using traditional technologies for tackling air pollution such as fire hoses and water lances.


2.    Water Mist Cannon

Water Mist cannons are cannons that spray water at very high pressures. They project a high-velocity stream of water. Typically, this technology by HKD Blue can deliver a large volume of water, often over dozens of meters. They are used in firefighting, large vehicle washing, riot control, building demolition, and mining. It is either connected to in-ground water supplies or mobile bladders (often on trucks). They propel streams of high-pressure water aimed at neutralizing and suppressing the dust before it causes air pollution.

It is believed that firefighters use Water Mist cannons to suppress the smoke from a burning building. It is used to tackle air pollution by ecological experts in Canada and Australia. A few demolitions companies prefer to use water mist cannons for dust suppression instead of fog cannons.


The need for a dust control equipment in tackling air pollution cannot be overemphasized. Apart from keeping the environment green and healthy, it shows that your company cares about the staff and the environment it works.
