BossTek has introduced a new model of atomised mist cannon with a dosing pump to precisely meter additives such as surfactants, tackifiers, odour treatments and disinfectants.
The company said the move was intended to deliver greater performance and flexibility to its line-up of atomised mist cannons for odour management and wide-area disinfection.
“With a standard coverage area of more than 566 m2 and adjustable stroke length and frequency (from one per hour to 100 per minute), the DustBoss DB-30 Injektor was developed in response to customer feedback as companies in a wide range of industries seek to maximise the effectiveness of this technology. When equipped with optional 359-degree oscillation, the coverage area is increased to a whopping 2,880 m2,” said BossTek.
Chief engineer Jason Lesch explained: “Many customers use DustBoss equipment in various dust-generating industries but also need a separate piece of equipment to neutralise odour in the air.
“They wanted one piece of equipment that could do both, so we created a new and retrofittable system that could act as a dust control and dispersing system for additives, using water as the vehicle.”
Landfills, transfer stations, biomass operations and soil remediation projects are examples of applications needing a single system that can deliver both dust and odour control.
“We’re seeing greater demand for performance-enhancing additives in a variety of industries,” said Mike Lewis, VP of sales. “Throughout our history, we’ve welcomed input from companies that have specific needs, and that information has driven us to engineer a number of new models, options and capabilities.”
Lewis explained that while a large percentage of customers achieve their dust suppression goals using plain water, the new design relieves users of the need to measure and mix solutions to achieve superior performance in specific service environments.
“Odour control and open-area disinfection require the use of special additives,” he continued. “Automating the process makes it easier and faster, saving time and reducing potential waste.”
The additive injection system can be specified for new equipment or retrofitted to existing DustBoss machines. It also can be paired with an array of options to suit different requirements.
For example, BossTek offers a number of nozzle choices to deliver reduced flow rates, while maintaining excellent atomisation of the airborne mixture. The new model can also be specified with a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) to adjust plume size, and it can be outfitted to accommodate non-potable water sources.
