Fog Cannon is one of the most popular options for dust suppression. There are various types of fog cannon but the basic line is that they are engineered to meet the industrial standards and can be used in the most extreme industrial and commercial environments. For this system to work effectively, it must provide air column which should exit the cannon at very high velocity and this air column should carry fog along with it. At high pressure, the fog can travel at distances exceeding 150 feet and issued on various applications such as construction sites, steel and slag facilities, building demolition, rock quarries, mining operations, recycling plants and waste transfer stations.
In order to suit the various requirements for the suppression of dust in these different situations, there are many fog cannon products of different components and sizes. Popular choices include portable car units, pole and wall mount units and also the completely self-contained trailer unit which includes generator, water tank and pump which is mounted on truck or trailer. The units are available in various voltage and there are many other product features including chemical injectors, variable frequency drives, and oscillation.
The so-called wall mount includes fog cannon that houses high-velocity fan assembly, powerful motor, fog ring, and nozzles. Some of the walls mounted units can be equipped with an oscillating assembly that allows it to cover an area of up to 70,000 square feet and an angle of up to 270 degrees. These units can flow as much as 19 gallons of water in just one minute but this depends on the size and the number of nozzles.
The portable fog cannon is very similar to the wall mounted, only that the former is mounted on a portable trolley and so it can be easily moved within the facility or from one location to the other when needed. Some portable models allow oscillation. Just like the wall mounted units, the portable water cannons are available in various sizes to suit the different needs and applications.
This may include self-contained trailer unit which includes generator, water tank and pump which is mounted on truck or trailer, to the high-pressure pump which is controlled by the programmable logic controller and variable frequency drive motor. Its advantage is that it is portable and provides very powerful and effective fog and can hold huge volumes to cover a large area.
