"Grain Dust Suppression System"
Turn your Grain Dust into PROFITS
with Agri Duster!
The Agri Duster is an oil dust suppression system that sprays a fine mist of FDA approved food grade oil on your grain.
Once a thin film of oil is deposited on your grain, the oil will reduce the friction that causes breakage and will reduce the dust when you handle your product by a minimum of 95%.
Clean up time and equipment maintenance is greatly reduced due to the dust control.

Why Use The Agri Duster?
The University of Iowa did a study showing that 1.2 bushels of grain are lost in dust with each handling of 1,000 bushels.

In the late 80s RC Peterson became aware that there was a health hazard not being addressed when it came to handling grains. He noticed that this was not only a farmer’s problem but it's a rising problem on a commercial level as well. Grain dust originates at the time of harvest when the farmers first handle the grain. The grain dust continues with each handling from the farmer to the elevators. Farmer’s Lung (and other respiratory conditions), can affect everyone in the grain industry. R.C. Peterson decided this needed to be dealt with and he created the “Agri Duster.” Formerly the Little Duster.
