Bosstek Offers Mid-Sized Dust Control Cannon

Bosstek has introduced a powerful new mobile mid-sized dust control cannon. The DustBoss DB-45 Surge is the next iteration of the popular Surge series featuring an innovative pressurized center nozzle paired with the industry-proven fan and misting ring system to suppress both surface dust and airborne particulates.

With three remote-controlled stages and precision oscillation for optimum command over water volume and coverage area, the DB-45 Surge delivers the dependability of atomized mist along with J2P (jet-to-plume) nozzle technology that surges for over 200 ft. (60 meters), even in troublesome windy conditions. The result is an easily maneuverable, autonomous, and versatile dust control solution for outdoor operations in all weather conditions.

“Our first iteration of this technology was larger for operations with high-reach cranes and enormous coverage areas,” explained BossTek Dust Control Specialist Mike Lewis. “Managers of medium and smaller operations were impressed with the existing technology but wanted a lighter and more compact option that offered the same excellent field-tested versatility and results. With a 200-ft. throw range, I’d say that most of our customers will be well-served by the new model.”

In turbulent situations, dust is lifted into the atmosphere and carried beyond the site line over long distances, which can lead to permit violations. Operators often mitigate particulate emissions using sprinklers or hoses to saturate a material’s surface. The stronger the wind, the more water pressure is required to break through the wind shear, resulting in greater amounts of water filling the surrounding work area – often 300 gpm (1135 lpm) or more.

The DB-45 Surge combines the power of a 25-hp industrial fan, misting ring and heavy-duty barrel with the reach of a central high-pressure spray nozzle. The misting ring introduces millions of tiny dust capturing droplets into an area for proven dust suppression.

The pressurized spray resists wind shear and uses the force of the wind to further fragment droplets, enhancing its dust suppression capabilities. This is achieved with a maximum of 72 gpm (372 lpm) and as little as 17 gpm (77 lpm) when using only the misting ring and fan. The cannon also features a VFD (variable frequency drive), which allows the unit to operate more efficiently at lower water pressure.

The three stages are easily input by the touch screen system, protected by a sealed NEMA 4 cabinet or controlled by a heavy-duty hand-held remote control with a 1,000 ft. (305 meter) range. Stage one is highly effective on moderate days and uses the powerful 30,000 cfm (849.5 cmm) fan and misting ring for wide area coverage. For windy days, stage two features a pressurized stream delivered by the J2P nozzle to pinpoint the source of the dust. On high wind days, operators can choose stage three which utilizes the fan, misting ring and center nozzle for maximum coverage.
