BossTek launches dust suppression design
By Steve Ducker12 January 2018
A leader in dust and odour control technology has introduced the newest model in its growing family of self-powered dust suppression equipment.
USA-based BossTek has announced the debut of the DustBoss DB-30 Fusion, a transportable atomised mist unit, engineered with a workhorse electric motor and 30 KW generator.
Permanently mounted on a rugged roadworthy trailer, the company’s Fusion lineup is proving a popular means of delivering dust suppression technology to sites lacking a convenient power source.
Unlike its larger siblings, water is supplied to the DB-30 Fusion by a standard 15.8 mm garden hose, so it can be used at any location with a working hose bib. Equipped with an in-line 75 mesh, 200 micron filter, the unit can also be specified with special filtration to accommodate non-potable water sources.
“This design was developed in response to input from the market, which indicated that some customers would benefit from a more compact design that’s well suited to smaller projects or tight spaces,” said BossTek sales manager Mike Lewis.
“The 7.5 hp electric motor generates 9,200 cfm of air flow, and it uses the same industrial strength construction as the larger models – a manifold with 30 specially designed nozzles that atomise the water supply, creating droplets between 50 and 200 microns in size for maximum particle attraction.”
The company also offers a full line of surfactants, tackifiers and odorr control additives that are fully compatible with the equipment.
