Metal Casting Technologies : December 2006
METAL Casting Technologies December 2006 31 Coolfog is an effective fog-based technology for temperature, dust and odour suppression in foundries. providing a quantifiable reduction in dust particles, through an innovative 1000-PSI delivery of a microscopic fog. The system uses either mains or static water sources with nominal consumption rates ranging from four to 20 litres per minute, dependent on applications and circuits. Coolfog is not a spray of water and it wonít wet the works. Excessive dust, odours and heat greatly reduce productivity and are detrimental to safe working conditions for employees. Foundries generate significant emissions of particles (including smoke, dust and fumes). These emissions must be controlled to avoid inhalation by employees and neighbouring populated areas. Coolfog provides dramatic temperature reductions of up to 7 - 10 degrees Celsius, dust suppression of up to 85% and odour elimination of 100%, in most industrial and commercial applications. Coolfog works by pressurising water to 1000-PSI through uniquely designed nozzles, producing minute water particles that evaporate into the atmosphere reducing temperatures in the foundry. Similarly, this output of fog encapsulates dust particles making them too heavy to remain airborne, thus suppressing the dust particles safely to ground. Coolfog reduces the risk of dust particles entering adjoining industrial and residential properties, creating a healthier environment for all employees and neighbours. Foundries are also encountering legal challenges from various local authorities, legislative, and environmental organisations due to emissions. Continuing residential expansion is also creating new challenges to the way in which foundries manage and control their emissions into the surrounding environment. Access Environmental Systems offers new technology, providing solutions to dust, temperature and odour control. Coolfog provides effective answers to managing industrial sites and has been installed in numerous foundries throughout Australia, India and The Middle East. Access Environmental Systems is currently establishing a European outlet following numerous enquiries for Coolfog. Benefits of using Coolfog system include: • Easily adaptable to all production facility applications and is environmentally friendly. • Highly efficient with client feedback reporting significant temperature reductions while dropping airborne dust particles and odours by up to 90%. • Very economical on water consumption. • Minimal downtime and maintenance. • User-friendly components. • Assists companies to comply with legislative requirements.
