Ship unloaders are designed to unload seagoing vessels of their cargo, usually raw materials such as coal. Ship unloaders usually work on a runway (100 metres +) and move the material out of the ships' holds by means of a grab bucket; the grab bucket then unloads the material into jetty hoppers or chutes.
It is the unloading process of the material that generates hight levels of airborne dust, and the dryer the material the more dust is created. Our systems introduce small water droplets in the hopper or chutes and are designed to create an atomized mist that the falling material must pass through, and it is the atomzied mist that greatly reduces the uplift of dust. The systems are designed to add minimal moisture to the material using low volumes of water when compared with standard water spray nozzles.
