The feed quality itself, the logistics from the factory to the barge, and the use and maintenance of the feeding system all play important roles for how much wastage you get as a result of dust and breakage. The importance of reducing wastage is obvious. Wastage leads to a higher feed factor and, in practice, significant losses. Dust and breakage can also cause downtime and result in shorter or longer stoppages in output, which could potentially be even more costly than the breakage formation itself.
