One thing became clear after hearing our customers' odor control struggles: it doesn't matter how innovative your odor control solutions are if they aren't built for all seasons.
The OdorBoss is already one of the most versatile odor control systems on market with it's mobility, durability, and power. Optional heat protection measures are designed to protect cold temperatures from taking down the entire operation.
The OdorBoss® OB-60G with Heat combines an enclosure with insulation, heat tracing, and internal heat generation to protect the equipment while in use and in storage. The reported result is a dramatic reduction in odor without equipment clogging or downtime from frozen lines.
Impressed with the results during summer, customers asked for an outdoor odor control solution that could withstand freezing temperatures.
Other odor suppression methods such as perimeter fence misting units and spray trucks can have serious issues in winter. Perimeter fence misting tubes freeze, rendering them useless for part of the year. Water spray trucks commonly experience ice buildup on the inside wall of the tank, along pipes, and around nozzles, often requiring indoor storage to thaw.
Inspired by the DustBoss industrial fan-driven dust suppression products, the OB-60G has been engineered to deliver a finer mist that is better suited to optimum odor control. Based on principles of matching the droplet size to the size of the targeted vapor, the system uses a special atomizer nozzle and a 10 HP air compressor to create an engineered fog comprised of millions of tiny droplets as small as 15 microns in diameter (approximately twice the size of a human red blood cell).
Odor Control Solutions for Winter Conditions
The key for excellent odor control in many operations is the versatility and low maintenance that the OB-60G with Heat provides. Powered by a 480-volt power source, the special open-ended barrel design contains a powerful 25 horsepower fan that generates 30,000 cubic feet per minute (152.4 CMS) of airflow on one end, which propels the fog created by the Odor X Atomizer nozzle located at the other end.
The device is mounted on a towable roadworthy trailer that is also fitted with a 500-gallon (1893 L) water tank housed in an insulated metal enclosure. The unit can run for as long as 16 hours on a single tank filling under normal operating conditions.
During operation, a 100-watt thermostatically-controlled heater keeps the tank and equipment within the enclosure well above freezing, while the atomizing nozzle, regulator and other exterior components are warmed by separate heating elements to assure consistent operation without ice buildup.
The tank is wrapped in heat tracing and skirted with a wide insulated belt around the bottom. When not in use, operators can keep the genset running or choose the more cost-effective option of switching the power source from 480 volts to 120 volts and using a grounded extension cord to power the essential freeze prevention elements. Depending on the outside temperature, even the unheated enclosure will stay above freezing for several hours after shutdown.
Ease of Mobility
Fitted with a 2-5/16" Class III ball hitch, the unit can be quickly repositioned on its trailer to accommodate changing work locations or shifting wind patterns with a standard pickup truck or small skid steer. At just 8.8 feet (2.68 meters) wide, 19.8 feet (6.03 meters) long and 8.4 feet (2.56 meters) tall, it can be easily positioned in places where most spray trucks cannot reach.
Using the touch screen panel housed in a protective NEMA 3R cabinet, operators can set the unit to be aimed precisely where odor concentrations are highest or used as a powerful perimeter barrier with an extremely wide dispersal area using the standard 0-359° built-in electric oscillator and 0-50º vertical adjustment.

Trying to stop dust from getting in the air is a valiant effort. Unfortunately, it’s a hard fought battle. In most scenarios, dust is going to be generated and released into the air upon disruption. The demolition industry has copious amounts of dust created during the tear down of structures that preventive methods are not… Continue Reading
In a move designed to bring unparalleled versatility to its lineup of highly-successful dust suppression equipment, BossTek has introduced an optional Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) system that allows users to adjust air flow to suit a broader range of applications and working environments. Driven by customer input from a number of different industries, the new… Continue Reading
Taking steps to prevent dust particles before they are disturbed and released into the air as fugitive dust is always a favorable idea, adding an extra layer of protection for on-site workers and the surrounding community. Unfortunately for industrial sites, preventing all dust generation is nearly impossible, but it’s still wise to implement prevention methods… Continue Reading
Dust big and small can be a pain on industrial job sites, but those pesky, moving fugitive particles are especially irritating. This umbrella term “fugitive dust” refers to dust particles that like to escape into the air without a directed location to be collected in. The dust expands out into the open air, and if… Continue Reading
Dust particles are often thought of as the large, visible dust bits in the air you can see floating around without a care in a warm sunbeam, or the collected dust resting on the shelves of various knick knacks you’ve accumulated over the past years. Unless you’re allergic to dust, you probably don’t think much… Continue Reading
Misting cannons are one of the most effective methods of industrial dust control available today. Their use of mist backed by a powerful throw helps dominate migratory dust. DustBoss dust control systems use atomized mist to capture fugitive dust roaming in the air. This fine mist takes advantage of the similar sized dust particles to… Continue Reading
