Mobile dust suppression design features Tier IV Final gen setPublished 7/3 at 17:06
Bosstek has updated its self-powered dust suppression equipment with Tier IV Final compliant generators, ensuring compliance in all 50 states of the US.
The company made the announcement with the debut of the new DustBoss DB-60 FusionTM, a suppression system driven by an electric motor paired with a gen set powered by a heavy duty four cycle indirect injection diesel engine. Designed, engineered and assembled in the USA, the generator features a dual containment fuel cell, heavy gauge lockable enclosure and oversized brushless alternator for easy starting.
Permanently mounted on a rugged road worthy trailer, Bosstek’s Fusion line up is an effective means of delivering versatile, mobile dust suppression technology to sites that lack a readily available power source. The company expects to unveil two other Fusion models in early 2019, giving customers the ability to select the size and coverage range needed to best suit their operations. The new generator series is designed to provide noise reduction, and comes with a multi voltage switch with utility power outlet in all voltage modes. The digital engine / generator controller is equipped with single button stop-start and large fuel capacity providing 24h of run time.
The DB-60 Fusion drives pressurized water through a circular stainless steel manifold with 30 atomizing spray nozzles, then launches millions of tiny droplets with a powerful fan. Atomized mist droplets of 50 to 200 microns in size are thrown out in a 60m cone at an adjustable 0 to 50° elevation angle, capturing airborne dust particles and dragging them to the ground. Unlike industrial sprinklers used for the same purpose, which can require hundreds of litres of water per minute, the DB-60 only uses about 87l/pm to help avoid pooling or runoff.
A touch screen panel for controlling the dust suppression unit is encased in a NEMA 3R cabinet, allowing operators to control oscillation, booster pump, fan and water. The cabinet is constructed for outdoor use, designed to provide protection against solid foreign objects (such as dirt), air (dust, emissions), water (rain, sleet, snow) and ice formation. The system provides mobility and versatility and is able to deliver up to 5,834m2 of coverage.
