They are also provided        with high pressure water sprinkling systems at the hopper and in feeders to suppress the dust, which emanates during dumping and crushing
  • The Vertical Raw Mill and Pyro systems are connected to RABH (Reverse Air Bag House)
  • Dust emission during cement grinding at both Ball Mills and Vertical Roller Mill are arrested by dust collectors installed thereat
  • Packing houses are also provided with dust collectors and suction points at all generating areas to ensure dust free working environment
  • Water sprinklers are also provided at required transfer points to suppress fugitive dust.
  • Dedicated water tankers are engaged at both mines and plant to sprinkle water to reduce fugitive dust generation on haul roads and internal roads
