DustView — Bulk Material dust content

DustView — Dust measuring device for comparison of dust formation of powders and bulk materials

DescriptionFIDAS 110 / 110 Model

The DustView is a novel cost effective instrument that determines the level of dust in a bulk material.

During production, conveyance and filling process' of solids in the form of powders, bulk materials, granulates pellets and other shapes, dust will be generated.

This dust generation can lead to operation and environmental safety issues and impact on the production process reliability and product loss.

The DustView instrument can analyse a 30g bulk sample in 40 seconds and report a value that can be used as an indicator of dust level.

The sample of the bulk is placed in the hopper at the top of the instrument and then allowed to freefall and impact at the base of the sample chamber. The level of dust generated both by the free fall and the impact, is monitored using a laser over a 30 second interval.

A value is determined as a dust number, which can be used as a good indicator of the quality of the bulk sample and as a QA parameter.
