Dust Binding

We keep the pollution down

In many existing plants and industrial areas, dust is a big problem! A lot of negative aspects will follow, like safety, health and environmental arguments. Dust will be really costly and is a big danger for your plant. A poor road surface means a safety risk. DustBind from Siethom will help to prevent dust. Our product will bind the small particles and is much more effectice than only watering the surface.


 

DustBind is made from lignin, a natural product found in wood

DustBind from Siethom is a cost-effective and natural product

To use DustBind is a very easy way. Mix the product with water and start to spray 1,0 up to 1,5 litres per square meter. Siethom is offering also all type of equipment. The roads on mines are often used to deliver heavy loads. Safety issues are important factors and government will control their safety. One big problem on mine roads is the visibility. The company has to avoid accidents, to minimise car maintenance and to optimize health and safety standards.

Siethom DustBind will help:

  • Reduce maintenance and operating costs of your cars
  • Reduce water consumption
  • Increase road visibility
  • Better environmental performance
  • More safety in your plant
  • Standards and mining regulations will be accepted from government

A better environment...

Binding dust on work places like mines, building sites and many industrial areas leads to a better working environment. The conditions become safer, the visibility is better, and a more efficient work can be done if no dust is in the air.
“A more pleasant working environment is also a source of efficiency.”
In agriculture dust can be a problem when it covers fruits and vegetables as it gives an appearance of dirt. A preventive dust binding allows a more natural handling of the goods and avoids extra washing steps. This means economy savings.

Dust can also be a source of development of allergies and asthma, which is a major problem for millions of people. By reducing the quantity of dust in the air, we reduce also the risk for these people to be sick. It improves the quality of life.

Applications...

Road maintenance:
Nowadays dusty roads are becoming a big problem for traffic and habitants. Next to health hazards the cost for retaining are getting higher and higher for the owner. Binding the dust on a regular basis makes the road easy to maintain in a good standard without the need to start costly renovation projects.

Stock pile sealing:
Especially in windy areas a lot of airborne dust is generated along stock piles. The wind is blowing the light dust particles from the stock yards to neighbour plants and villages. With DustBind the surface of these stock piles can be sealed and the major airborne dust can be eliminated due creating a thin crust out of the top layer of each pile.

How does it work...

Technology:
DustBind is a natural side product from processing of trees to paper, which means that it is not hazard at all and can be sprayed in all kind of environments. The DustBind powder or liquid is simple dissolved in water and sprayed in different solutions, depending on the application, onto stock piles, roads or other dust sources. After drying up DustBind binds the small dust particles together, so a sealing crust develops.

Dosage:
Road maintenance needs a special treatment to build up a base structure on the ground. In the beginning a dosage of three sprays with a 10% solution (100 gram per m²) on three sequencing days should be applied. Thus will bind all dust particles to the ground and provide a “dust free” environment even during frequent transition of heavy trucks. Weekly or bi-weekly re-sprays will be applied with a lower DustBind solution to bind all new dust, which is transported on the roads by wind or trucks.

Stock piles:
Sealing of stock yards and piles is done with a 5% to 15% solution (50 – 150 gram per m²), depending on the material and site conditions. The solution will be sprayed just once and is sealing the material for up to 6 months from rising of airborne dust.
