How can I control dust at truck loading and offloading?

The most common method of dust control on truck loading is by the usage of a retractable loading spout. For materials that produce significant dust, loading spouts are also available with extraction fans and filters. Depending on the material being handled, other methods such as dust suppression fog or dust suppression hoppers may be applied.

Dust control when unloading trucks is dependent on the method used to unload the truck. In the case of pneumatic bulk trucks it is important to have a correctly sized dust filter on the silo or bin into which the truck is being unloaded.
