PRESS RELEASE: The new design is a versatile and transportable atomised mist unit, engineered with a workhorse electric motor and 30kW generator.
According to BossTek, its Fusion line-up, which is permanently mounted on a rugged road-worthy trailer, 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 15.8mm 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 0-50° of elevation and a range of approximately 30m in calm conditions, the standard configuration includes user-definable 359° oscillation, allowing the unit to cover as much as 31,000m2 with a powerful dust-trapping mist. The new design can also be optimised 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 water-efficient design consumes 2.5 gallons (11L) per minute. 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, the company said.
BossTek sales manager Mike Lewis commented: “This design was developed in response to input from the marketplace, which indicated that some customers would benefit from a more compact design that’s well-suited to smaller projects or tight spaces.
“The 7.5hp electric motor generates 9,200cfm of air flow, and it uses the same industrial-strength construction as the larger models: a manifold with 30 specially-designed nozzles that atomise the water supply, creating droplets between 50 and 200 microns in size for maximum particle attraction.”
