As a pioneer in atomized mist technology for dust suppression, BossTek® is excited to announce an industry-leading upgrade to the product warranty. Having previously set the industry standard with 3-year/3000-hour coverage, warranty on the direct drive fan motor of the entire product lineup has been increased to 5-year/5000-hours.
For over a decade, BossTek (Formerly Dust Control Technology) has built the DustBoss® line of atomized mist cannons, widely considered the most reliable equipment of its type on the market. Many of the early units sold are still in service today, delivering surface and airborne particle control. As industrial dust emissions become more heavily regulated, the improved warranty offers customers peace of mind and reflects on our commitment to superior durability and return on investment from our products.
“When we follow up with past customers, more often than not, instead of replacing their DustBoss, they’re adding to their fleet as they expand,” said BossTek CEO Edwin Peterson. “With so many of our oldest units still in the field cranking out wide area dust suppression, extending the warranty was an easy decision. Our product quality hasn’t changed from day one.”
The demand for atomized mist dust suppression technology has increased since air quality inspectors now test for smaller, non-visible particle sizes (<10 microns in diameter or roughly the size of pollen). These particulates can leave the site line and expose the surrounding community to potentially hazardous respiratory issues. Previously, industries like demolition contractors, bulk product storage (coal, ash, scrap metal, etc.) and ports have controlled dust by applying surface suppression using water sprayed from hoses, which create droplets from 200-1000 microns in size. But over time, operators have discovered that in order to control dust emissions, droplet sizes must roughly match the size of airborne particulates, which hoses cannot accomplish.
Dust Control Solutions
Available in four sizes depending on the needs of the application, a single DustBoss® unit can cover up to 5 American football fields with billions of mist droplets approximately 50 to 200 microns in diameter. Using a powerful industrial fan in the back of the cannon, engineered droplets are shot from a misting ring on the front in a cone-shaped pattern, reaching up to 100 meters. The huge coverage area is achieved by using the vertical adjustment and optional 359º oscillator. The tiniest droplets are small enough to travel with dust emissions, collide with particles too small to see and drag them to the ground. The larger droplets deliver surface suppression, without excessive pooling or saturation of material.
Hoses can pump out >100 GPM of high-pressure water and need to be controlled manually. At that volume, without extra steps taken to control pooling and runoff, operations can face workplace and environmental violations. DustBoss units are a one-touch operation, allowing workers to turn them on and walk away. The water pressure emitted from the mist nozzles is harmless, the maximum amount of water used is 39 GPM (average around 17 GPM) and the fans are guarded against reach-in injury, creating a safe and cost-effective operation.
The cannons can be mounted on a tower, steel skid or wheeled frame. They can also be purchased as Fusion™ units that feature an enclosed tank and gen set on a roadworthy trailer for applications that lack easy access to water and power or require exceptional portability. Able to be heat traced and insulated for cold climates, the Fusion line has quickly become a popular choice in a wide range of industries. The direct drive motor in those designs is also covered under the new parts warranty.
“This warranty demonstrates commitment to our customers,” Peterson concluded. “When they revisit their dust control plans in the face of changing regulations, we want them to be confident that they are getting the highest quality product on the market, with the best return on investment.”
An innovator in dust suppression, BossTek offers a wide range of equipment and accessories that enable atomized mist technology to control fugitive particles for applications in demolition, construction, bulk material handling, waste and scrap processing, recycling and landfills. Recently the company has extended its expertise to odor management solutions using similar technology, which distributes safe and environmentally friendly topical and airborne deodorizers. Headquartered in Peoria, IL (USA), the company’s dust and odor control units are designed and manufactured in the USA and delivered to customers around the world, with its equipment sold to users in 40 different countries to date.

The demolition materials chose their path among many options. Whether they were processed at a transfer station or broken into smaller pieces at a crushing facility, these materials followed their path to stay at that industry or be shipped to the next. For this transfer process of bulk materials, shipping via port facilities is often… Continue Reading
As the last branching option for demolition materials in the DustBoss throughout the Industries chart, steel materials are not only sent to scrap yards for processing, but they can also be transported directly to steel mills. At the core of these facilities, steel mills take steel-based metals and melt them down to be cast for… Continue Reading
As the demolition materials choose one of their many paths of life to walk throughout the industries, some choose the path that leads them to concrete crushing facilities. Large bulk aggregate is often brought to these facilities to be broken down from large chunks into more manageable sizes. Concrete from paved roads or structural foundations… Continue Reading
Demolition jobs are the king of the DustBoss throughout the Industries chart, putting a process into motion that allows collected materials to travel to a variety of facilities where they will be recycled and used across different industries. Many bi-products of a demolition, when recycled, can help companies reclaim a portion of the costs associated… Continue Reading
Materials created during the demolition process are sent to various industries across the world. Looking at the DustBoss throughout the Industries chart, a transfer station is one of the first possible facilities these resources will visit. At these locations, two main types of materials arrive from trucks used in demolition loading which fall into the… Continue Reading
