Italian-designed and made high pressure for nozzles and fog makers from Tecpro Australia generate outstanding dust suppression results in construction and mining environments.

Fugitive dust causes a wide range of health, safety and pollution problems in many types of work settings, but particularly in mining and construction environments.

Some types of traditional wet suppression methods can over-wet the site, causing additional problems due to water run off and pooling. These methods can incur significant costs in carting excess water off site and disposing of it safely. Unnecessary water usage can add significantly to water costs, so a properly designed dust suppression system quickly pays for itself.

A powerful alternative is now available via Tecpro Australia's range of Fogging Nozzles and Fog Makers.

"Our high pressure Fogging Nozzles are water-efficient and create a fine mist that can be dispersed over a wide area," says Graeme Cooper, Managing Director of Tecpro Australia. "Because the water droplets are micro-sized, they are similar in size to the dust particles. This makes it easier for the two to combine and fall to the ground assisted by gravity."

A fogging system eliminates the problems generated by traditional wet suppression methods.

"Because the water droplets are so fine, it is easier for them to evaporate which avoids the problems associated with water pooling and water run-off," says Cooper.

Effective dust suppression generates many benefits. These include improved adherence with health regulations, site visibility and community relations.

"We offer a total dust suppression solution for the mining and construction industries," says Cooper. "This includes Fogging Nozzles, pumps, tubing, multi-head nozzle holders as well as the GIRAFFA and ELEFANTE Fog Makers which project an ultra fine mist over a wide distance."

Tecpro Australia can advise clients on the best type of dust suppression system to suit their site.

"Every dust suppression problem is unique and requires an individual solution. We have extensive experience in guiding clients towards the optimum solution," says Cooper.
