Coal Mining

Modern industrial processes produce significant quantities of airborne pollutants in all forms -- particulate, gases, vapors, fumes and mists. Coal handling and processing is by far the most polluting in terms of emissions, releasing high levels of dust, carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen oxide. Reducing the pollutants to acceptable levels is critical for the safe operation of many coal processes and mandatory to meet stringent emission regulations.



 

 

Material Handling

Conveying, screening, crushing, and unloading. Requires ground straps and NEMA 9 electricals for fabric collectors.

 

Bunker Ventilation

Remote from other dust producing points. Separate collector usual. Requires ground straps and NEMA 9 electricals for fabric collectors.

 

Crushing and Screening

Good exhaust ventilation is required for crusher, screens, and transfer points. These collectors can be either wet or dry type depending upon operating conditions. A fabric collector may be employed where freezing is a concern.
