Vostochny Port installed the latest dust suppression system on one of the stackers of the coal transshipment complex in Primorye. It works on the basis of finely dispersed water.

The system is a power chain connected to the pump module, laid throughout the entire coal warehouse. Irrigation occurs through six nozzles installed on the top of the stacker jib. Due to the design of these nozzles, the pressure in the 250 bar drops water into such dispersity that its particles combine and precipitate even the smallest fractions of coal dust.

According to the press service of Vostochny Port, in the near future a new irrigation system will be installed on all stackers and reclaimers of the coal-loading complex. She has already been tested by Russian and German experts in difficult climatic conditions in northern Russia. The system is recognized as effective for year-round operation. It will be of great help in the winter when, due to drier air and low temperatures, dusting will increase.

As Sergey Mazurenko, Director of Environmental Protection at Vostochny Port JSC, noted, Vostochny Port has once again made a pioneer in applying the best available technologies.

“It is extremely important that the new irrigation system allows you to fight the dust on the top of the stacker's arrow, in fact, one of its main foci. This eliminates dusting at the time of unloading of coal to the warehouse. It should also be noted that the energy chain, through which water is supplied under high pressure, is laid for a record distance - 750 meters. Earlier in the world practice there was no such experience, ”said Sergey Mazurenko.
