DustBoss units gain North American certification
By Lindsay Gale08 October 2014
Dust Control Technology’s (DCT) DustBoss dust suppression machines have gained Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and Canadian Standards Association certification (CSA) certification in the USA and Canada. Three machines have covered - the DustBoss DB-30, DB-45 and DB-60 direct drive designs that went through a lengthy testing programme. DCT believes that these are the first atomised misting units to gain this level of accreditation.
“UL certification affirms the safety of these three fan-driven designs,” commented DCT general manager Laura Stiverson. “Their effectiveness has been proven through more than a decade of use in severe operating conditions, such as demolition, mining and coal handling. From the time of their introduction, product safety has always been a priority, but now customers have the added assurance of certification by an independent source.”
Using standards developed by UL and CSA, the evaluation and certification process was conducted by SGS, a globally respected Nationally Recognised Testing Laboratory (NRTL) accredited by the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
