Community pressure to fix dust problems in the inner-Brisbane suburb of Mt Cooth-tha has led to design of an innovative dust collection and disposal system.

Community pressure to fix dust problems in the inner-Brisbane suburb of Mt Cooth-tha has led to design of an innovative dust collection and disposal system.

Brisbane City Works officials contracted Donaldson—Torit DCE to engineer and progressively implement the engineering solution in the Mt Cooth-tha quarry.

The company’s Queensland consultant designed a system based around the company’s 2-5-15 Cased Dalamatic reverse pulse dust collector, said to be capable of collecting dust at a rate of 19,500m3 per hour.

According to Donaldson, residential zoning close to mines are forcing companies to develop innovative engineering solutions.
