Common Nozzle Applications in the Mining Industry

Cleaning

  • Screen/Sifter Cleaning
    • Cleaning screens which are used to sift different grades of crushed stone, which have the potential to clog
  • Conveyor Wash
    • Washing the conveyors and belts which transport raw material to prolong their operational life
  • Truck Wash
    • Washing trucks used in mining areas to remove the excessive buildup of dirt and mud in the undercarriage and wheels, prolonging work life and complying with regulations for operation on public roadways

Dust Control

  • Area Dust Control
    • Active work areas produce a lot of dust and misting nozzles are ideal for knocking down dust from the air
    • Misting nozzles are often combined with fans or blowers to provide greater coverage and extended reach with the small droplet sizes that are ideal for dust control
  • Work Site/Dirt Road Dust Prevention
    • Wide fan nozzles installed on tanker trucks or utility vehicles apply water as they drive along dirt roads to prevent dust created by vehicle travel
  • Conveyor and Conveyor Transfer Points
    • Wetting the surface of material on conveyors with spray nozzles to prevent dust during transportation
    • Using spray nozzles to wet material at transfer points where generation of dust is highest and material exposure is greatest
  • Pulverizer
    • When rock is crushed dust is created. Spray nozzles can reduce airborne dust, keep the material wet to reduce dust formation, and cool working surfaces in the pulverizer
  • Truck Loading and Unloading
    • Loading and unloading of trucks creates dust which can be mitigated by using spray nozzles to reduce airborne dust and to wet the product to minimize dust formation
    • Misting nozzles are often combined with fans or blowers to provide greater coverage and extended reach with the small droplet sizes that are ideal for dust control
  • Boring and Drilling Dust Control
    • Knock down dust, cool and protect drilling equipment, and reduce explosion potential

Humidification

  • Spraying water to humidify an enclosed or confined area

Evaporative Disposal

  • Spraying into the air can promote safe and efficient evaporation of runoff water and chemicals which are typically captured in a basin or pond, reducing the potential pond size over that of a static pond
