2000 Gallon Dust Suppressor

Industrial Tankers > 2000 Gallon Dust Suppressor

2000 Gallon Dust Suppressor

Client:  Pinden Group

The Pinden Group is a specialist waste management company processing a wide range of hazardous and non-toxic materials.  The company operates an 80 acre quarry site in Dartford, Kent.  Dust suppression is just one of the issues that Terry Bishop and his team at the Pinden Group face on a daily basis.

Their existing dust suppression unit was becoming unreliable and a larger capacity unit was required to cope with an increased workload including aggregate processing and quarrying, waste management, road cleaning and dust suppression on internal roads, rock faces and earth storage areas.

Design Details

  • Water Spinner Dust Suppressor.  This unit uses minimal quantities of water without compromising dust control levels.  It eliminates flooding caused by traditional splash plate systems.  This unit has significantly reduced the Pinden Groups water costs.
  • Rain Gun Water Cannon:  The Pinden Group has four quarry sites all at various levels. The rain gun water cannon is capable of accessing and damping down earth storage clamps up to 220ft high.
  • Commerical axle rated to 100km/hr with suspension. This allows the tanker to access steep gradients safely while fully loaded.
  • Wash down facility.  This is used for washing machinery and weigh bridges.

Terry Bishop, Managing Director, The Pinden Group

We are a multi-disciplined company with a portfolio of activities including, Road Haulage, Waste Management, Plant Hire, Materials supply including Ready-mixed concrete and Recycling. We approached Major to design and manufacture a Dust Suppressor Tank incorporated into a Hydrema Dump Truck which is available for hire to our customers to control dust in the working environment and comply with environmental legislation. The design team at Major kept in touch with us at every stage of the process. We’re delighted with the finished product and would have no hesitation recommending the design services of Major.

Eamon O’Loughlin, Director at Quattro UK Ltd

After my initial enquiry to Ivor Dobson at Major Equipment to build a specialist tanker he visited our site and within days came back to me with detailed CAD drawings for a 3000 gallon tanker.  On our agreement the tanker was built.  This machine has surpassed our expectations so in 2015 we placed an order for an additional unit.  The spare parts support is excellent.  Any wear and tear parts we have needed have been received promptly from Major.

David Millings, Cargo Operations Manager, Port of Tyne

Major designed and built a 2200 Gallon Dust Suppression Tank for us. We use it for cleaning access roads - the blaster bar does a great job! We also use it for dust suppression in landfill sites and in the wheel wash area. If you are looking for a custom designed tanker backed by a professional service, I would have no hesitation in recommending Major Equipment for the job.
