Abstract A significant part of the hazardous particulate emissions in and around ore sintering plants arises during the loading of the agglomerated material into railway cars; loading tunnels with exhaust ventilation are an important means of dust control. Equations are given which permit calculation of the volume of air which must be exhausted from a loading tunnel per hour. This volume is a function of the dimensions of the tunnel, cars and conveying equipment, of the volume of air expelled by the agglomerate and of the convection space above the cars. Although the latter 2 volumes are hard to measure, their ratio is almost constant, so the calculations with the proposed equations involve only easily measured variables.
