Large amounts of dust on worksite sites can cause a range of issues, including productivity & environmental. Traditional reduction methods are often time consuming & require large amounts of water. Water$ave Dust Suppression (DS) will increase efficiency, while reducing the water usage, it can cut down watering frequency by up to 50%. The reduction in volume & frequency of watering will save time, money & water.
Water$ave DS is a lineal, anionic polymer in powdered form. Water$ave DS is soluble in water, & even in very low concentrations increases the viscosity of the water. The polymer permeates & aggregates fine particles, making them large & heavy enough that they won’t blow away or run off. This means less water is used with longer lasting results.
Water$ave DS is added to the water cart slowly to prevent ‘’gel blocking’’ which will leave undissolved blocks of polymer in the cart. It is then agitated for a period before use to activate the polymer molecules. For best results the polymer/water solution should be circulated for at least 15 minutes prior to use. The solution should be recirculated if left to settle for more than 30 minutes
For light traffic, start with 100gm per 1000L of water. This will treat 350m2 – 500m2
For heavy traffic, start with 200gm per 1000L of water to treat the same area.
Dosage rates will vary from site to site, depending on traffic, wind, and soil type. The above rates should be used as a guide and tailored to the site’s unique requirements. Need help? Contact Us or try our Calculator.
Water$ave Dust Suppression is safe to handle, non-toxic & non-hazardous according to Worksafe & the GHS.
