Slowing wind is the key objective in any dust control strategy as it is wind that causes and distributes dust. Fugitive dust tends to come from two distinct sources:

Eroded dust
This is where particles are lifted off the ground or off the surface of a pile and blown away. The erosion process is extremely sensitive to wind speed. Utilizing windbreaks can effectively halve the speed, reducing dust distribution to 1/8th. Research has shown that Erosion (wind speed)3. This means a pile that was losing a ton of dust monthly would lose less than 125 kg!

Airborne dust

This is where particles fall from a conveyor or get kicked into the air by machinery. Utilizing a windbreak to halve the wind speed can halve the area affected. For optimum control of very small airborne particles, an agent is needed to stick particles together. Fog is the most efficient and environmentally clean way to do this. WeatherSolve works with leading manufacturers of fogging systems to create composite solutions involving fog and windbreaks together.

Industrial Windbreaks are also used for:

  • erosion control
  • reduction of wind loads on sensitive components
  • debris and garbage handling areas
  • control of waves and turbulence on ponds
  • snow deflection and control
  • fencing and privacy
  • wind deflection for air cooling towers
