Dust Control Technology (DCT) introduced a technology that allows the delivery of atomized mist solutions in customizable shapes and sizes, giving manufacturers and bulk handlers virtually unlimited options in dust and odor suppression.
DCT is complementing its existing line of stationary dust suppression rings with the ability to produce geometric shapes, bars or other configurations, customized to the needs of the specific application. Each design is specially-engineered for the application and equipment of the individual customer for superior dust management.
The new technology can create a virtually unlimited array of shapes and sizes, including the DustBoss DB-R ring, which creates a curtain of mist around the cargo stream or specified area for outstanding containment of fugitive dust or odor. The customized solution offers high-volume applications such as radial stackers, crushers and screeners more focused and reliable suppression, taking the technology beyond perforated hoses and basic spray nozzles. The company has also developed the ability to supply custom spray bars and shapes under the DustBoss DB-B family of spray bar products.
“This capability was developed in response to several requests by clients seeking a viable area-specific solution,” said DCT President Laura Stiverson. “We’ve found that the most effective dust suppression approach involves identifying where in the industrial process fugitive dust is produced and customizing a solution that contains it at the point of emission.”
Customers can request a virtual site assessment to determine the optimum size and shape of a customized ring, working with experienced personnel to design a tailored system. The assessment includes such details as material properties and volume, width/length/speed of conveyors, pulley diameter and slope. DCT can also produce customized shapes from customer drawings, depending on the size, geometry and complexity.
