The highperformance dust control system prevents the migration of fugitive material from dustgenerating activities such as crushing and sizing steel slag

High-Performance Dust Suppression

Dec. 7, 2013
+200 ft. range Generates 30,000 CFM to cover 21,000 sq.ft.

DUST CONTROL TECHNOLOGY’s DustBoss® DB-60 is a ducted fan unit built to optimize droplet size and velocity for maximum particle capture. With a range of more than 200 feet (approx. 60 meters), the design is capable of blanketing a 125,000 square foot area from a single location. With a long history in demolition, recycling and other applications — preventing the migration of fugitive material from scrap, slag, and sand handling — the carriage-mounted device is completely portable, allowing it to be located anywhere it’s needed.

At West Coast installation, a network of three DustBoss machines is a critical part of the slag handling operation, successfully managing dust at a steelmaking plant in a very environmentally sensitive location, where responsible stewardship was a primary criteria in securing the slag handling contract.  The operators say that effective suppression was critical to its reputation as a reliable business for that location, strengthening its customer relationship and contributing to its overall success.

The DB-60’s 35-hp fan generates 30,000 CFM (948.50 CMM) to cover 21,000 square feet (1,950 square meters.) More than 125,00 square feet (11,613 square meters) coverage is available with optional 359° oscillation.

The oscillator gives 0-40° of movement on a standard unit; optional increased oscillation, up to 359°, is available. The angle of suppression coverage is adjustable between 0-50° with height adjustment.

Power ratings are: 3 Phase / 25 HP fan / 480 Volt / 60 Hertz. A full-load current is 46 amps. A 60 Kw gen set is recommended. The motor is designed with a 1.15 service factor capable of operating at +/-10% of design voltage.

The DustBoss 60 has a 10-HP (7.5-Kw) high-pressure booster pump with no lift. The 10 PSI (0.69 BAR) constant pressure needs to be delivered to booster pump. Maximum inlet water pressure should not exceed 100 PSI (6.89 BAR) when operating the booster pump.

The maximum PSI delivered by booster pump is 200 PSI (13.79 BAR).  A filter is included (and should be used at all times.)
