Beton Lana is a leader in the production of high-quality ready-mixed concrete and the supply of locally sourced inert materials such as sand, gravel and crushed stone. Situated in the industrial area of Bressanone, the company set itself the goal of minimising dust emissions in order to protect the surrounding companies as well as the population of the nearby city from dust.
When Breton Lana approached EmiControls with the ambition “we want to become the cleanest gravel and concrete plant in the area”, the V22 was the obvious solution. The V22 was installed on-site, in combination with the CURT management software. The V22 atomises very fine water droplets, making it able to fight large quantities of dust, while minimising water consumption. The long-distance projectile captures an enormous quantity of dust particles, avoiding the undesired formation of water accumulations on the ground. Thanks to its wide range (70-90 meters), the V22 is suitable to be used in different scenarios such as large industrial plants, mines, large demolitions, open cut quarries, large recycling plants and material deposits, landfills and woodworking plants.
The CURT (Control Unit for Remote-controlled Turbines) management software allows the monitoring and management of dust and odour abatement machines. The software allows the definition of parameters for the automatic activation and deactivation of the dust control equipment, for example, timed control and weather conditions. The CURT system installed at Beton Lana was used to automate the turbine start-up every morning for ten minutes and at regular intervals during the day. In addition, a weather system ensured that the turbine did not turn on when it rained or when weather conditions were unsuitable.
It was not just the residents who live in surrounding area who was thrilled with results. “Our values of innovation and sustainability have guided us in undertaking this dust abatement project with EmiControls. When it comes to gravel and concrete, everyone thinks about dirt and dust – we want to help dispel this stereotype in our industry; our ambition is to become the cleanest gravel and concrete plant in the area,” says Christian Grünfelder, the operator of Beton Lana. “We chose a dust abatement machine over a conventional spraying system because it is an innovative solution for selective dust control. As the dust controllers are equipped with filters, it allows us to use them with the process water we collect. This makes them even more an environmentally friendly unit.” concludes Christian Grünfelder.
