A global leader in dust and odor control technology has introduced the newest model in its growing family of self-powered dust-suppression equipment, as BossTek announces the debut of the DustBoss DB-30 Fusion.
The new design is a versatile and transportable atomized mist unit, engineered with a workhorse electric motor and 30-kW generator. Permanently mounted on a rugged road-worthy trailer, the company’s Fusion lineup is proving to be a popular and effective means of delivering powerful dust suppression technology to sites that lack a convenient power source.
Unlike its larger siblings, water is supplied to the DB-30 Fusion by a standard 5/8-in. (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.
With an adjustable throw angle from 0 to 50 degrees of elevation and a range of approximately 30 meters (100 ft.) in calm conditions, the standard configuration includes user-definable 359-degree oscillation, allowing the unit to cover as much as 31,000 sq. ft. (2,880 sq. meters) with a powerful dust-trapping mist.
The new design can also be optimized with a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) to precisely adjust fan speed. An optional dosing pump is available for precise metering of additives to even further enhance particle control.
The extremely water-efficient design consumes just 2.5 gpm. That’s compared to competing dust-control methods such as manual spraying that can use hundreds of gallons per minute, resulting in over-saturation, run-off concerns and higher water costs.
A touch screen panel for controlling the DB-30 Fusion is encased in a NEMA 3R cabinet, allowing operators to control oscillation, fan and water. The cabinet is constructed for outdoor use, designed to provide protection against solid foreign objects (such as dirt), air (dust, emissions), water (rain, sleet, snow) and ice formation.
