BossTek, Peoria, Illinois, has announced the debut of the DustBoss DB-30 Fusion. The atomized mist unit is engineered with an electric motor and 30-kilowatt generator. The DB-30 is permanently mounted on a trailer as is the rest of the Fusion line.
Water is supplied to the DB-30 Fusion by a standard 5/8-inch garden hose. Equipped with an in-line 75 mesh, 200 micron filter, the unit can also be specified with special filtration to accommodate nonpotable water sources.
With an adjustable throw angle from 0-50 degrees of elevation and a range of approximately 100 feet in calm conditions, the standard configuration includes 359-degree oscillation designed to cover 31,000 square feet. The new design can also be optimized with a variable frequency drive (VFD) to precisely adjust fan speed. An optional dosing pump is available to meter additives for particle control.
The DB-30 consumes 2.5 gallons of water per minute. A touch screen panel for controlling the DB-30 Fusion is encased in a NEMA 3R cabinet, allowing operators to control oscillation, fan and water.
The unit carries a 3-year/3,000-hour warranty on the dust suppressor and a 2-year/2,000-hour warranty on the gen set. If potable water is being used, nozzles typically need to be inspected once per year. The turntable bearing on the oscillator should be greased annually or as needed for harsh service conditions and the fan motor should be lubricated every 10,000 hours.
“This design was developed in response to input from the marketplace, which indicated that some customers would benefit from a more compact design that’s well suited to smaller projects or tight spaces,” Mike Lewis, Bosstek sales manager, says. “The 7.5 HP (horsepower) electric motor generates 9200 CFM (cubic feet per minute) of air flow, and it uses the same industrial-strength construction as the larger models: a manifold with 30 specially designed nozzles that atomize the water supply, creating droplets between 50 and 200 microns in size for maximum particle attraction.”
The company also offers a line of surfactants, tackifiers and odor control additives that are fully compatible with the equipment.
“We’re always developing new technologies, and we’re excited to introduce this new product design to serve our customers even better,” Lewis says. “It’s our customers, first and foremost, that drive our innovation and passion, and they will always remain our primary focus.”
