Dust and odors reduction
- Purify the ambient air by reducing the dust in the air thanks to misting
If you work in an environment that generates dust, you must implement a technical solution to limit the dust that may remain in the air.
We intervene in many sectors of activity to remove dust and odors: wood factory, demolition site, asbestos removal site, cement works, landfill…
- Misting, a technology that complies with regulations
Dusts are very small particles that remain in the air. They are not necessarily visible to the eye but are inhalable. The level of penetration into the human body, by the pulmonary route, depends on the particle size (between 0.5 and 100 microns). This represents a health risk for your employees (respiratory discomfort, allergenic effect, toxic effect on the body, lesion in the nose, fibrogenic effect, or even carcinogenic effect).
The dust concentration in the air is subject to a regulation established by the French Ministry of Labor, here is an extract (source).
- How to improve the air quality with the LIDIT misting system?
Studies have been conducted to measure the effects of the LIDIT misting system on the rate of dust in the air. The results show that the LIDIT misting system has an extremely significant impact on the dust content in the air. In these studies, we can observe a 50% reduction in total dust concentration.
The LIDIT misting system purifies the ambient air by lowering the temperature and maintaining a comfortable hygrometry rate, around 60%. This control of the hygrometry rate makes it possible to reduce the amount of particles in the air.
In addition, the French Ministry of Labor recommends the establishment of a misting ramp to reduce dust.
The misting system creates a water fog curtain. The dust entering this curtain is burdened by the humidity and falls back to the ground.
Our technology is a natural system, without the addition of any chemical adjuvant.
- Misting in the wood industry
Prevent the risks associated with wood dust
In France, more than 300,000 employees are exposed to wood dust in their daily work. Wood dust is likely to cause health problems for these operators. So how to prevent the risk of exposure?
In the wood industry, misting is an effective tool for reducing dust and halting the volatility of sawdust, in order to reduce fire hazards and respiratory disorders. LIDIT misting system helps to improve working conditions and keeps your employees healthy.
Through many years of experience, our expertise has been recognized in industries such as malting, winemaking, glue production, concrete and more.
- Misting against fire hazards
Combustible dusts may cause fire or even explosion hazard when in sufficient concentration.
Therefore, it is imperative to implement a solution, such as misting, which aims to limit the dust emission in the air. The LIDIT misting system is effective regardless of the structure of your factory or building.
Our system uses a high-pressure misting process that reduces dust in all circumstances: waste recycling, asbestos removal…
Misting to remove odors in industry
Some product manufacturing generates olfactory pollution. This is the case of landfills, sewage treatment sites, industrial building… which can have an impact on the health and safety of employees, but also on the environment.
LIDIT high-pressure misting system can prevent this olfactory pollution of industrial or animal origin. Our systems remove odors by spreading neutralizers or specific odor-destroying products.
- Application example: misting in a waste treatment center
Misting at DRIMM
DRIMM is a subsidiary of the Séché Environnement group, based in Montech in French department Tarn et Garonne. The company processes non-hazardous industrial waste and household waste and valorizes waste gases by producing electricity equivalent to the need of an area of 40,000 inhabitants. Its packaging sorting business is one of the most modern in the South West.
Lookig for a misting solution to reduce dust and odors, the company has chosen the LIDIT misting systems to design and install its equipment.
The picture shown here is the LIDIT system.
To go further in the use of our misting technologies, we also offer the diffusion of perfume and deodorants. We can spread a wide variety of specific odors in large areas with small diffusers.
