Monitoring extreme levels of particulate matter

The operations of blasting, transportation, grinding and crushing of minerals are the main sources of dust in the air (PM 10 -2.5) due to the nature of the processes of size reduction and segregation. ABCDust measures PM10-2.5 dust levels generated by these operations with the use of EPA near reference PM10-2.5 measurement technologies, combined with solid methodologies to provide a consistent assessment of dust levels in different environmental conditions, levels of mining production (Ton / h) and dust control measures implemented.

Our solution for monitoring extreme dust levels includes:

  • Continuous measurement of multichannel dust levels of up to 4,000 mg / m3 for different PM 10, 5, 4, 2.5 and PM 1,
  • Analysis of gravimetric samples to characterize and weigh mg / m3 dust emissions,
  • Modeling of dust emissions based on different parameters (winds, humidity, production, type of material, etc.)
  • Recommendation of dust control solutions (maintenance, dry, fine mist, dust collectors, additives)
  • Evaluation of pre and post implementation improvement solutions
  • Emissions report before and after the measure implemented
