Powder Control and Waste Material Recycling! High Standard Environmental Protection Measure to Coordinate with Environment
For environment protection measures, NFLG controls each dust raising spot in the production process by equipping high performance pulse dust removing system from warehouse belt conveyor, horizontal and inclined belt connecting part, to the transitional bin of main building, instead of simply enclosing and covering, to avoid the dust raising phenomenon in the production process.
In the mixing plant, NFLG eliminates the dust raising in the main building from the source by adopting positive pulse dust remover to eliminate dust for crusher, transitional bin, and powder, etc., which is different from other manufactures who simply rely on adopting enclosing and isolating dust which may easily incur dust leakage and is a temporary relief.
Automatic Feeding Material of Fully Enclosed Stockyard
Completely Enclosed Belt to Avoid Raised Dust
It is well known that the dust raising problem on top of powder tank of ordinary mixing plant is very serious, which is widely criticized. NFLG adopts tank top pulse dust remover with high pressure blowback + pulse-type continuous dust removal. Remove dust by fans actively, and balance the internal air pressure. The eliminating efficiency is high, and it can not be blocked easily. It is very easy for workers to maintain, and completely avoid the previous leakage and splashing of devices. Meanwhile, the level meter on top of the powder bin is equipped with automatic alarming device which will give alarm in case that the dusting of powder bin reaches the setting level. It is very sensitive and can avoid powder dusting overfilling effectively.
The waste water and slug in the mixing plant shall be collected and the slurry shall be recycled through wet concrete recycling system after separation. It will be recycled completely for the second utilization of main building after settlement in the sedimentation pool, which realizes 100% circulating adoption, instead of discharging any sewage, and saves water and cost at the same time.
