Aiming down from above can take your dust suppression to the next level.
Designed to address ongoing operations that generate dust in fixed locations, tower-mounted DustBoss fan-powered units are well suited for slag handling, aggregate processing, recycling operations, coal handling, and other various industries.
DustBoss tower mounting kits include a base of hot dip galvanized steel pipe from 6 to 10 inches (15 to 25 cm) in diameter and up to 30 feet (6 meters) in length.
Manual or motorized height adjustment allows operators to change the height easily from the ground. When fitted with the optional electric jack, changes can be made via the control panel or from a remote location.
4 Advantages to Tower-Mounted Dust Suppression
1. Sharpens Angle of Attack
Taking advantage of Newton's gravitational theory, the dust suppression technology of atomized mist allies with gravity, helping drive particles to the ground.
By placing the DustBoss above material stockpiles or stationary dust-generating activity and aiming the plume downward, the 50 – 200 micron sized droplets can be projected directly onto the material, creating a downward flow of mist that suppresses airborne particles and traps ground-level dust.
2. Controls Airborne and Surface Dust
Fugitive dust roaming the air is suppressed by the directed, atomized mist. Once the mist reaches the ground, the fine particles seal the creation point of the dust, reducing the particles generated by any action.
The coverage area of each DustBoss unit depends on the size of the fan, barrel, atomizing ring and nozzles, as well as the degree of oscillation. For example, the DB-60 at ground level has a throw of 200 feet (60+ meters), and when equipped with full oscillation, it can blanket 125,000 sq/ft (11,613 sq/m) from a single location.
Both throw distance and total coverage area can be increased even further by raising the height of the machine.
3. Powers Through Wind
Wind is perhaps the most difficult variable, because it can be highly unpredictable. Able to come from any direction with a wide range of strength, earth's gusts are a challenge to effective dust control.
With a tower-mounted unit, the atomized mist can be precisely aimed, directly targeting dust at the source and preventing particle migration. Designed to withstand wind loads of at least 100 mph (161 kph), tower-mounted systems can be fully automated. Equipping units with wind and weather sensors, units can be programmed to automatically adjust elevation and oscillation range to compensate for changing conditions.
4. Achieves Top to Bottom Dust Control
Piles within different industries can grow to substantial heights, evading the typical dust suppression range provided by a myriad of dust controlling techniques. By raising the height of the unit, the vertical reach of DustBoss units are extended reaching the highest of stockpiles.
Expanding the limits of dust suppression technology depends on the ability to customize equipment and installation for specific materials and operating environments. Elevating your DustBoss can only improve your dust suppression strategy. Airborne particles and dust-generating processes are easily controlled at jobsites with effective dust suppression equipment.

Acknowledging the need for dust control is often challenging. It can be difficult to determine whether the amount of dust being produced exceeds permissible exposure levels that lead to a harmful working conditions. However, in effort to maintain safe environments for employees and the surrounding community, it is imperative to monitor work site air quality…. Continue Reading
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

The first step is to admit you have a dust problem and that you need a dust suppression cannon. The second step is to decide how big of a dust problem you have and how powerful of a cannon you need. Once you’ve identified size, it’s mounting time. All dust suppression cannons can be placed… Continue Reading
Case Study: Slag Recycler Meets Air Quality Regulations with DustBoss Tower Mounted on Shipping Container
California’s widely publicized water crisis and subsequent restrictions on usage has — in some instances — bumped up against some of the state’s stringent environmental regulations. According to state rules, if there is a chance of dust emissions from substances such as slag that can potentially contain heavy metals, then the air quality regulations take… Continue Reading
