Longest parts warranty

BossTek® (formerly Dust Control Technology) has announced an upgrade to the company’s product warranty. Having previously set the industry standard with 3 year/3000-hour coverage, the company has increased the term to a 5 year or 5000-hour replacement warranty on the direct drive fan motor of its entire product lineup. For over a decade, the company has built the DustBoss® line of atomized mist cannons, widely considered the most reliable equipment of its type on the market. Many of the early units sold by the company are still in service, delivering excellent surface and airborne particle control.

 

As industrial dust emissions become more heavily regulated, the improved warranty offers customers peace of mind and reflects BossTek’s commitment to superior durability and return on investment from its products. BossTek CEO Edwin Peterson said: “With so many of our oldest units still in the field cranking out wide area dust suppression, extending the warranty was an easy decision. Our product quality hasn’t changed from day one.”

 

The demand for atomized mist dust suppression technology has increased since air quality inspectors now test for smaller, non-visible fugitive particle sizes (< 10 µm in diameter or roughly the size of pollen). These particulates can leave the site line and expose the surrounding community to potentially hazardous respiratory issues. Previously, industries like demolition contractors, bulk product storage (coal, ash, scrap metal, etc.) and ports have controlled dust by applying surface suppression using water sprayed from hoses, which create droplets from 200 – 1000 µm in size. But over time, operators have discovered that in order to control dust emissions, droplet sizes must roughly match the size of airborne particulates, which hoses cannot accomplish.

 

Available in four sizes depending on the needs of the application, a single DustBoss® unit can cover up to 5 American football fields with billions of mist droplets approximately 50 – 200 µm in diameter. Using a powerful industrial fan in the back of the cannon, engineered droplets are shot from a misting ring on the front in a cone-shaped pattern, reaching up to 100 m. The huge coverage area is achieved by using the vertical adjustment and optional 359 ° oscillator. The tiniest droplets are small enough to travel with dust emissions, collide with particles too small to see and drag them to the ground. The larger droplets deliver surface suppression, without excessive pooling or saturation of material.

 

Hoses can pump out > 100 GPM of high-pressure water and need to be controlled manually. At that volume, without extra steps taken to control pooling and runoff, operations can face workplace and environmental violations. DustBoss® units are a one-touch operation, allowing workers to turn them on and walk away. The water pressure emitted from the mist nozzles is harmless, the maximum amount of water used is 39 GPM (average around 17 GPM) and the fans are guarded against reach-in injury, creating a safe and cost-effective operation. 

 

The cannons can be mounted on a tower, steel skid or wheeled frame. They can also be purchased as Fusion™ units that feature an enclosed tank and gen set on a roadworthy trailer for applications that lack easy access to water and power or require exceptional portability. Able to be heat traced and insulated for cold climates, the Fusion line has quickly become a popular choice in a wide range of industries. The direct drive motor in those designs is also covered under the new parts warranty.
