Rather than leaving dust in the enclosure 24/7 I prefer to take the dustbath into the bathroom every couple of days, put it in a dry tub, add the chinchilla, and let it roll in the chin dust for a few minutes.

Doing it thisway prevents a fine layer of volcanic dust on everything in the room where the cage is (as would happen if just left in the cage). It also saves on the amount of dust you'll go through -- I simply add dust to the bath as needed.

Leaving the dustbath in the cage will likely result in the chin using it as a litterbox.

There must be websites specifically aimed at chinchilla owners. They'll probably give you better advice than you're likely to get here.

(When you have experts available, it's usually best to go straight to them.)
