New Oscillation Advancement Delivers 2.8 Acres Of Dust Suppression

A global leader in large-scale dust suppression technology has announced another breakthrough in coverage area, now able to blanket more than 125,000 square feet with a powerful dust-trapping mist from a single machine -- more than 2-1/2 football fields.  By designing a 359° oscillation option for all three of its popular ducted fan models, BossTek can deliver what is believed to be the widest coverage of any comparably-sized dust suppression equipment. 

Already known for long throw and outstanding effectiveness, the DustBoss® product line now offers an option for even greater cost efficiency and faster payback.  “With nearly double the coverage, users can manage dust on a given job with a reduced number of machines,” observed BossTek president Edwin Peterson.  “Crews can maintain better focus on core activities, without having to relocate the units as often to manage adjacent areas.”

To incorporate the expanded oscillation option, engineers capitalized on the same advancements that produced 180° coverage a year ago.  They shifted the water inlet to a center feed to accommodate the increased range of motion, and incorporated a larger oscillation motor to handle the additional work.

Dust Control Equipment DustBoss DB-60

The DB-60 employs a series of 30 specially-designed brass nozzles to atomize water into droplets 50-200 microns in size, the optimum for effective dust particle attraction. Launched by a powerful 25 HP (18.6 Kw) motor that generates 30,000 CFM (nearly 850 cubic meters per minute), the atomized spray has a throw of more than 200 feet (approx. 60 meters) to produce the massive coverage area of more than 2.8 acres.

The oscillating DB-45 can deliver a virtual dust barrier that covers more than 70,000 square feet (approx. 6,503 square meters), with a throw of nearly half a football field.  With its 15 HP (11.2 Kw) fan, the DB-45 generates 18,000 CFM (510 CMM) of air flow to maximize coverage and particle capture.  Like the more powerful DB-60, the design also features adjustable elevation from 0-50°.  An optional 10 HP (7.5 KW) booster pump elevates water pressure in the DB-45 as high as 200 psi for outstanding particle suppression.

The DB-30 has long been known for performance that belies its smaller size, capturing dust particles more effectively than many larger machines. Mounted on a movable carriage, the versatile unit has a 7.5 HP (5.6 Kw) motor that generates 9,200 CFM (260 CMM).  When equipped with the new 359° oscillation option, the DB-30 can cover more than 30,000 square feet of area (2,787 square meters), nearly ¾ of an acre.

All of the fan-driven DustBoss models are available with the company’s Variable Particle SizingTM technology, providing customers with a wide selection of different nozzles for suppressing a broad range of particle sizes. VPS can be used to control dust outside the typical 50 - 200 micron range, such as odor-causing vapors or very fine solids.

The expanded oscillation option will be available on all three of the DustBoss fan-driven designs:  the DB-60, DB-45 and DB-30.  Specifiers will be able to order the machines with four pre-set oscillation arcs of their choosing, allowing users to select the most appropriate coverage for each job site and weather conditions. 

BossTek is a global leader in dust and odor control solutions for demolition, recycling, scrap processing, mining and rock industries.  The company’s DustBoss product line helps reduce labor costs vs. manual sprays, freeing up manpower for more important tasks.  Built for safety and rugged durability, the units also use less water than hoses and sprinklers.  Some customers have realized payback in less than six months, netting an annual cost savings of more than $50,000.  bosstek.com
