Quick Release Manifold Bracket
> Developed in response to customer request to minimize downtime and worker exposure to harsh conditions when removing nozzles for cleaning.
> Allows easy removal of the entire manifold, as opposed to removing each nozzle separately from the DustBoss itself.
> Manifold can then be replaced with another while the nozzles are cleaned at your convenience.
The new quick release manifold bracket is engineered to limit worker exposure to harsh service environments and potential safety hazards, while minimizing process downtime.
Designed to fit all fan-driven models of DustBoss atomized mist dust suppression equipment, the new bracket design allows removal and replacement of the manifold in about five minutes, with no tools required.
The stainless steel bracket and pin mounting system secures the manifold in position, allowing maintenance personnel to remove and replace it quickly for routine cleaning or other service.
Initially developed in response to customer request for use in harsh service conditions to reduce potential risk to employees, the design is expected to find utility among any customers wanting to avoid work stoppages and maximize process time.
The nozzles are a key element to atomized mist technology and cleaning the nozzles is one of the few maintenance items on the DustBoss. Every water source contains minerals and other dissolved solids that will eventually build up and interfere with the droplet production.
To avoid downtime, some customers purchase a spare set of nozzles to replace the dirty ones while they are being cleaned. In some industries, that required a worker to shut down a machine and spend 15 to 30 minutes in hostile conditions to remove and replace nozzles for cleaning.
Customers have used wire brushes, lime-dissolving products and even sonic cleaners to remove build-up. Some choose to have a spare manifold on hand for each DustBoss machine, while others stock just one to swap when needed.
The new bracket can be retrofitted to any of the existing fan-driven designs. Customers can order one mounting kit to fit DustBoss models DB-45, DB-60 or DB-100. The smaller DB-30 incorporates a different stud size and pattern, requiring its own mounting kit. Both kits feature the pin mounting system with no-tool removal. The specially-designed pin is permanently affixed to a lanyard. The simple design allows for easy execution, even in heavy protective gloves.

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
