As effective as the odour control side of the Deodouriser product/system is, another very important
facet of the product composition is its dust absorption properties/capabilities. Dust control of course
has many facets and our years of in-the-field experience have given Deodouriser technicians the
unique ability to identify the source of the problem, and the precise and most effective way of
As much as the actual product additives are so vitally important, again as in the case of odour control,
equally impacting is the tailored drop size and the quantity required. Some specific needs also require
a binding agent to help control the flying particles, which in effect are captured by the microscopic
water particles and dropped unceremoniously to the ground. Water will of course evaporate, whereas
a binding agent helps to solidify the offending particles.
Dust problems manifest in virtually every facet of our life, but in industry the problem is magnified 100-
fold because of outside influences. So whether it be movement of vehicles, quarry work, machinery in
action of processing of products including waste materials, the problem that is as onerous to your
workers as it is to your neighbours, can be overcome with a tailor-made cost-effective and
environmentally acceptable system from Deodouriser.
DUST CONTROL = BETTER WORKING CONDITIONS
Abzorball 200 Dust Suppressant Capabilities
Abzorball 200 is a surfactant-based dust Absorbent that permeates into the substrate of all types of clay and siliceousmatter.Abzorball is a blend of natural derived emulsifiers,wetting agents and dust stabilisers.
Abzorball 200 is considered fully bio-degradable under the Australian Bio-degradable Laws and will be broken down from its initial state to an even urther bio-degradable component. Abzorball 200 is both non-toxic and non-hazardous. Formulatedon replenishable ingredients (plant derived) which reduces the impact on the environment and produces a low carbon footprint both in its application, manufacture and disposal.
Abzorball 200 acts as a wetting agent, increasing the wetting ability of water on particles. A finer water droplet is obtained by reducing the surface tension of the water, thus increasing the surface coverage. The result is that more dust is held in place per volume of water.
Abzorball 200 unique formula provides a product that is safe, both for the end user and the environment. In combination with high dilution rates and superior wetting and binding properties it the ideal choice, where dust control is important. Abzorball contains no coal-tar based products (Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons – PAHs) polyacrylamide resins, magnesium chloride (irritant) or use recycled fuel or solvent oils.
Type: Surfactant-Water – For hydrophobic materials such as various soil profiles, siliceous matter, ore stock and coal dust that may become air borne.
Application Rate: Abzorball 200 is applied initially at dilution of 1-part Abzorball to 100 parts water (as a result of built in water softeners, industrial waste water can be used). Follow-up application is at a dilution rate of 1-part Abzorball to 150 parts water.
Coverage: Abzorball 200 is dispensed at a coverage rate of 1 litre per 1.5 – 2.5 square
metres. This rate may vary on different soil types.
Reapplication: Indicative Reapplication: After initial application, product should be applied
at a dilution of 200:1 as follows:
- Heavy Duty Dust Conditions: Apply using Abzorball 200 at 200:1 dilution once every 4 th day water application*.
- Medium Duty Dust Conditions: Apply using Abzorball at 200:1 dilution once every 8 th day water application*.
- Light Duty Dust Conditions: Apply using Abzorball at 200:1 dilution once every 10 th day water application*.
*Dust Conditions will vary based on traffic, frequency of grading, weather conditions and soil type
Method of Application:
- Applied by water cart with spray bar that is set to deliver above mentioned coverage rates directly to the road surface
- Micro sprayers set up to dispense as perimeter spray, to stop dust drifting off the lease automatically when vehicle passes a set point, spray is activated in 5 second
