An environmentally appropriate solution for dust suppression and control from dry surfaces.

TerrAffix Soil Solutions is able to offer an on-site eco-friendly solution to dust control using our dust suppressant system.

Dust is a problem within many sectors from civil engineering to mining. Managing this dust is critical to ensure the welfare of employees and the surrounding environment. Using our Finn Hydroseeder we spray the dry dusty ground with a liquid which captures the fine particles and holds them in place.

Dust kills people and is one of the highest causes of occupational deaths, suppressing dust saves lives.

The problem of dust is exacerbated by vehicle movements within and around construction projects.

With increasingly longer, dry climatic conditions in the UK the problems caused by dust are becoming more pronounced. Dust is a risk to staff, local public, wildlife and habitats.

TerrAffix Soil Solutions offer a dust control media which limits the mobilisation of dusts by forming humectants, effectively weighing the dust down and preventing it forming a suspension in the air.

The treatment is immediate and can be carried out while other operations are taking place.

Benefits:

  • Rapid dust suppression
  • Biodegradable
  • Non-toxic
  • Economical
  • Easy to mix and spray

How it works?

Our formulation on contact with dust forms a bond which prevents it from being mobilised back into the air. The dust will remain supressed until the next layer of dust forms above which can be controlled by wetting alone.

Once the original application weakens it is possible to add a diluted formulation to reinvigorate the control through each of the dust layers.

Applications

Suitable for application within the:

  • Quarrying and mining sector
  • Construction and civil engineering
  • Rail
  • Forestry
  • Agriculture

We are able also able to provide contracting services for the application of our dust suppressant product.

Our machinery is also available for hydroseeding work.
