Abstract Presentation of a method for calculating the air volume required to remove dust by exhaust ventilation when filling ore bins. Tests were carried out in industrial plants equipped with different exhaust ventilation systems: bin lid with pipe connection; exhaust truck on a crusher feed hopper, enclosed bins with cyclone chamber or turbulence exhaust fan, exhaust ventilation at skip loading and unloading openings. The enclosures reduced the workplace dust level to 2mg/m3.
