Mining: Dust Control

Got dust?  If you are in the mining industry, dust control is a constant problem. Mining dust can be created through mechanical disturbances of rock and soil through blasting, bulldozing, draglining, shoveling, and other manual action. Vehicles and wind can kick up even more dust into the air causing hazardous conditions without the proper protection and equipment to siphon this matter out of the air.

The Hurricane™ product line can help you control, clean and dispose of dust safely and efficiently. Removing and disposing of dust and related materials from around conveyors or crushing equipment can be done using any of our Hurricane™ vacuums.  The Hurricanes™ efficient filtration system and rugged design can handle the harshest environments.

For more information on how a Hurricane™ vacuum can help control dust in your mining application please contact our sales staff at
