Back in 2014 Mideco was requested to design and supply a dust control solution for the Andritz Feed and Biofuel Pty Ltd, the company from Denmark. The client’s new feed mill in Lang Lang, Victoria, handling a mix of grain and grain meal was generating a lot of dust. A dust solution was required for the hoppers opening of approximately 3540mm x 3000mm.
After discussing the complexities of the project, we recommended Burnley® Baffles. This is Mideco’s internationally patented dust suppression device designed specifically to reduce the escape of dust from dump hoppers and chutes handling dry granular bulk raw materials such as grains and ores. In this particular case, we recommended to install Model 5 with 3.0mm thick galvanised mild steel. As the product mix has a high percentage of meal with lump sizes of anywhere between 3mm to 8mm, the welded baffles construction for effective dust suppression was also recommended.
One set of Burnley® Baffles was built for Irwin Stockfeeds in Lang Lang. It was successfully implemented and it’s still making a difference to the quality of air at the site today.
Burnley® Baffles is a well-established dust suppression system with hundreds of installations in Australia and around the world. They are also currently installed at facilities in the US, Canada, Ukraine, New Zealand, China, UK and Ireland amongst others.
