If you're discarding the fines and dust collected from your dry bulk solids process, you’re discarding money, too.Even a small amount of waste fines and dust can mean significant financial loss for your overall process. For instance,if your process runs at 60 t/h 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and has a waste material stream that represents a 0.5 percent loss in product yield, you’re discarding more than 2,600 t/y of material.
