Water Requirements for DustBoss Dust Control Systems

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 create a compelling dust suppression solution.

With this water-based dust control, having potable water on-site is essential to running DustBoss systems. If only non-potable water is available, contact a dust control specialist to install a bag filter and determine the appropriate configuration based on the water source available.

At its core, all DustBoss cannon units need the proper connection and water pressure (PSI) to deliver effective dust control via atomized mist.

Water Specifications

Water requirements vary based on the size of the unit. The smallest dust control cannon, the DustBoss DB-30, calls for a different set of water specifications than its larger counterparts with the DB-60 and DB-100. It's important to consider the needs for each specific unit being run on site.

This small dust control cannon uses atomized mist to provide coverage to smaller job sites with easy positioning through a standard 3-wheeled carriage.
