A new prototype bag nozzle system has been designed under a Bureau of Mines contract to reduce dust generated during the bagging operation on fluidized air baggers. A field analysis of the new system has shown that the bag operator's dust exposure was reduced 83 pct. The amount of blowback was reduced 89 pct, which corresponds to a significant product savings. The new prototype system has been operating for a substantial period of time with no major problems.
