ENVIROMIST pro­vides in­dus­try lead­ing mi­cro-mist dust sup­pres­sion so­lu­tions, and has won Aus­tralian Bulk Han­dling Awards in 2015 and 2016 for sys­tems de­vel­oped for a WA iron ore mine and a Queens­land un­der­ground coal mine.

The EnviroMist high-en­ergy mi­cro-mist sys­tem is based on new re­search in the ap­pli­ca­tion of dust con­trol tech­nol­ogy.

The tech­niques used by EnviroMist fo­cus on ac­cu­rately iden­ti­fy­ing ma­te­rial prop­er­ties and flow dy­nam­ics, so that a to­tal so­lu­tion that is ef­fec­tive across the ap­pli­ca­tion’s full op­er­at­ing range can be de­vel­oped. EnviroMist’s use of sim­u­la­tion mod­el­ling al­lows ef­fi­cient and ac­cu­rate de­signs to be cre­ated, which re­sults in sys­tems pro­duc­ing high dust cap­ture ef­fi­cien­cies with­out the need for huge wa­ter con­sump­tion.

In or­der to re­duce fugi­tive dust emis­sions, EnviroMist worked with the Uni­ver­sity of Wol­lon­gong to an­a­lyse droplet sizes of var­i­ous dust sup­pres­sion sprays, lead­ing to the de­vel­op­ment of a sys­tem that matches en­ergy and droplet size with the size of these dust par­ti­cles.

This is the op­ti­mum so­lu­tion for elim­i­nat­ing par­tic­u­late mat­ter of the sizes PM10 and PM2.5, both of which are haz­ardous to hu­mans due to their abil­ity to be drawn deep into the lungs.
