Abstract
While various types of equipment are used in bulk material processing plants to control respirable dust, the equipment often doesn't adequately protect workers. One cost-effective way to supplement your existing dust control equipment is to install a whole-plant ventilation system. This article outlines research by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) on using whole-plant ventilation in two mineral processing operations to reduce respirable dust levels. Information also covers how to design a ventilation systems for any bulk material processing plant.
