It is easier to stop dust rising than to capture it in the air.
A Unique Dust Containment and Suppression Solution.
DUSTELIM® Foam systems, made here in Ireland by PCP Group, meet stringent health and safety requirements imposed on quarry operators. An innovative solution which prevents dust from becoming airborne and keeps it contained throughout the downstream process.
With DUSTELIM® Foam access for regular maintenance of equipment in screenhouses and crushers is now safer and easier.
We are happy to demonstrate this system at your quarry site. The video below shows how immediately effective DUSTELIM® Foam is in controlling dust.

DUSTELIM® Foam dust suppression systems are supplied in a robust shipping container with lights, air vent and distribution board for incoming power. This is where the three elements water, air and chemical are combined.
The system includes • Unique Foam Generating Unit • Self-Cleaning Water filter • Air compressor and receiver • Foam distribution nozzles • Control panel with warning lights • Bunded area for chemical storage.
Dust suppression can be achieved using only 2 litres of water per tonne of bulk material.
Why Foam Works Best
Water v Foam
The difference between water droplets and foam bubbles is that water droplets have a low surface area and high surface tension making it less efficient attracting and containing dust.
DUSTELIM® Dry Foam is characterised by its micro-bubble stability with millions of different sized bubbles providing a massive surface area with a lower surface tension. This makes our dry foam system incredible effective at trapping dust and preventing it becoming airborne.
