A concrete plant is used to manufacture concrete for products, buildings and delivery to local construction projects. The process of manufacturing concrete requires various materials including cement powders, sand and rock to be moved, weighed and mixed. During this process dust and other particles can be released into the environment making the jobsite and neighboring properties dirty if not properly controlled and contained. Most areas also have air quality regulations that business owners must comply with, including operators of concrete plants. By properly using dust collection and dust suppression techniques and specialized equipment the manufactures of concrete are able to appease opponents, be good neighbors, and confirm for air, zoning and environmental requirements.
FESCO Direct specializes in sales and service of concrete plants and equipment associated with concrete plants. While the company hasn’t been able to identify any individual factor to attribute the increase in dust control business too, managing partner Matthew Gladen stated “Probably a combination of factors, but mostly that we give every customer the time and attention needed for their project. A lot of other guys don’t know how to properly size and select dust equipment and only want to work on big (concrete batch) plant sales. We have the knowledge and desire to assist everyone, big sale or not.” FESCO Direct prides itself on providing quality equipment and service to all project big and small.
Dust collection, control and suppression at and around a concrete plant can be accomplished through a variety of methods. Sometimes a centralized dust collection system is installed to control and vent dust from many place on the concrete plant back to a single location. Other times, dust equipment is installed at several different locations around the plant. Sometimes water or specialized materials are spread around the concrete to keep dust from moving trucks and vehicls down. The methods used to control dust are highly dependant on the type of concrete plant being operated, the local zoning and environmental restrictions as well as the specific goals and desires of individual concrete plant owners and operators.
