DustBoss Dust Control System and How it Works

Dust control can be a sizable investment depending on what kind of solution is chosen. Naturally, when you're making this decision you want to have an idea of how the equipment works. DustBoss dust control cannons are durable misting systems that successfully take down dust while saving money in the long run. Here, you can get to know the system.

When taking the plunge on a misting cannon system, having a supportive team to help set up the best dust control configuration is a huge plus. They can provide you with information on the unit, how to use it on your site and offer insight to maximize effectiveness.

Let's look at how DustBoss dust control misting cannons work!

How DustBoss Dust Control Cannons Work

Let's look at a standard DustBoss DB-60 for reference. Starting at the very beginning, DustBoss systems require a reliable source to pull water from. Inputting clean water using a municipal fire hydrant is ideal for misting cannons. If non-potable water is the only option, run the water through a bag filter to create a clean input.

Once connected to a source, water flows into the DB-60 through a 1 1/2" cam-n-groove connection. Upon entering the unit, the water is run through a y-line filter to separate any fine particles that might cause damage further on in the system.

The water then travels through the piping to the booster pump to increased the pressure. This allows the unit to deliver more water while still maintaining its effectiveness using fine mist. The water exits the booster pump and flows through the connecting tube to the spray manifold.

The nozzles on DustBoss equipment are specifically designed to create fine, atomized mist that is similar to the size of dust particles. The inner geometry and exit orifice effectively fractures the water into the tiny water droplets.

The pressure from the booster pump causes mist to spray out of the unit, but it won't reach a far distance unless the fan is engaged. The DB-60 uses a large 25 HP fan to throw the atomized mist long distances. Once on, the mist captures the fugitive dust roaming in the air and drops it to the ground while avoiding the slipstream effect. If you want to know more about the slipstream effect itself, check out Atomized Mist and How it Works.

When the mist-dust combination hits the ground, the light water seals the surface of whatever it made contact with while avoiding over-saturation and preventing run-off. This way, DustBoss cannons can provide preventive dust control and active airborne suppression.

DustBoss continues to launch mist over a large area with automatic oscillation, significantly reducing dust on-site.
