ABSTRACT:
In order to limit dust transfer during the operations of material transportation at the factories of the construction industry, factories of the mineral and raw materials complex employ special dust suppression bunkers. These devices are structures located above a railway hopper (either a truck body or a conveyor). Through the input portal of the device, the transported material is transferred. Dusting can also be carried out under the bunkers from the side of the hopper, into which the material is poured. The design of dust suppression bins should be accompanied by a simulation of dust propagation processes. The simulation should be carried out in order to minimize the dust emissions and to select the optimum locations for the dust suppression sprayers.
