Terex introduced Aquamist by Terex, a dust suppression system that is now available across Terex Materials Processing brands – including EvoQuip, Fuchs, Powerscreen, Terex Ecotec, Terex Finlay, Terex MPS and Terex Washing Systems.

According to Terex, the Aquamist by Terex dust suppression system offers an improvement over conventional jets or water sprays to manage the build-up of dust and better protect workers on jobsites by using a high-capacity misting fan that produces finely divided water droplets in the size range 10 to 150 micron diameter. At this size, they easily combine themselves with dust particles of similar dimensions and precipitate them out of the air. Because water mists float more than a conventional spray, Terex says they cover and envelop the dust cloud more effectively.

“It is globally accepted now that airborne dust that is formed on jobsites can significantly contribute to respiratory illnesses,” says Paul Kearney, vice president of parts and solutions at Terex Materials Processing. “As increased legislation comes into place globally to mitigate this, more effective control of dust is needed. Our Aquamist system will better support worksite operations and strengthen our commitment to making the workplace a safe and healthy environment.”
