Dust Suppression

Dust suppression is a vital requirement for health and safety criteria within the construction, agricultural and mining sectors. The lack of control of environmental, road and site manufactured dust; either by excavation or disturbance of presence due to transportation and human intervention; has statistically caused more health issues & fatalities in the work space, increased vehicle and plant maintenance costs as well as damage to the flora & fauna in the environment.

Cruze has developed two world-class products to treat road-created dust and mine dust. These could either be the control of dust over trafficked haulage roads or dunes and tailing dams etc.

The two products are:

  1. NANODUST – This product is mixed with both a bitumen emulsion and potable water and applied with a bitumen distributor after the road has been swept.
  2. NANOBOND – It is a clear water based dispersion of a nanopolymer technology for road dust suppression mixed with potable water only.

NanoDust

A nano-modified cationic emulsion and water solution that both suppresses road dust on high-traffic roads as well as waterproofs the gravel base wearing course.

  • Chemically bonds to the dust particle
  • Long-lasting
  • Cost effective
  • Requires the use of cationic bitumen emulsion & potable water
  • The surface must first be swept with a mechanical broom with soft bristles
  • NanoDust must be applied with a bitumen distributor at 1L /m2
  • Quick-dry application
  • A single monthly application can suppress dust for gravel roads with 200-500 vehicles / day (if applied correctly)
  • Waterproofs the base once applied
  • The bitumen doesn’t require the use of heat but if heated to 35 degrees there will not be any negative effect
  • Will not block spray nozzles

NanoBond

  • Chemically bonds to the dust particle
  • Long-lasting
  • Cost effective
  • Can be applied with a water tanker and potable water
  • Quick-dry application
  • A single monthly application can suppress dust for gravel roads with 200-500 vehicles / day (if applied correctly)
  • Good for below-ground haulage roads
  • Requires several applications in first month and then once-a-month thereafter
