For more than a decade, BossTek (formerly Dust Control Technology) has built the DustBoss line of atomized mist cannons. Now, the company has increased the terms of its warranty to five-years or 5,000-hours replacement on the direct drive fan motor of its entire product lineup.
Many of the early units sold by the company are still in service, delivering excellent surface and airborne particle control. As industrial dust emissions become more heavily regulated, the improved warranty offers customers peace of mind and reflects BossTek’s commitment to superior durability and return on investment from its products.
“When we follow up with past customers, more often than not, instead of replacing their DustBoss, they’re adding to their fleet as they expand,” said BossTek CEO Edwin Peterson. “With so many of our oldest units still in the field cranking out wide area dust suppression, extending the warranty was an easy decision. Our product quality hasn’t changed from day one.”
The demand for atomized mist dust suppression technology has increased since air quality inspectors now test for smaller, non-visible fugitive particle sizes (<10 microns in diameter or roughly the size of pollen). These particulates can leave the site line and expose the surrounding community to potentially hazardous respiratory issues.
Previously, industries such as aggregates, demolition, bulk product storage (coal, ash, scrap metal, etc.) and ports have controlled dust by applying surface suppression using water sprayed from hoses, which create droplets from 200 – 1000 microns in size. But over time, operators have discovered that in order to control dust emissions, droplet sizes must roughly match the size of airborne particulates, which hoses cannot accomplish.
Available in four sizes depending on the needs of the application, a single DustBoss unit can cover up to five American football fields with billions of mist droplets approximately 50 to 200 microns in diameter.
