LABORATORY AND PLANT STUDIES OF ALUMINA CONTAINING SMELTER DUSTS

Neessen-Drack, D., Lay, J., Yaxley, G., Shaw, R. and Thomas, W.

Dust emission within smelters is a complex issue. While it is generally believed that primary alumina dustiness directly influences the amount of smelter dusts, this has not been quantified. This study has used a tumbler test procedure from the coal industry to compare the dustiness of a range of potroom materials.
