Quadruples dust suppression area

"These new options mean that customers can suppress dust and odour particles over a far greater area without having to move the equipment," commented DCT president Edwin Peterson. "That contributes to even greater payback, either by reducing the number of machines needed for a given job or avoiding the need to relocate the DustBoss to cover additional areas."
When equipped with the expanded oscillation option, the revised designs require that engineers change to a centre water feed to accommodate the increased range of motion. They also install a larger motor on the DB-60 or its cousin, the DustBoss DB-45, to handle the additional work. The machines will have four different settings, and users can select from 45, 90, 135 or 180° options to suit the specific job requirements on any given day.
The DB-60 employs a series of 30 specially-designed brass nozzles to atomise water into droplets 50-200 microns in size, the optimum for effective particle attraction. Launched by a powerful 25 HP motor that generates 850 m3/minute, the atomised spray has a throw of more than 60 m, yet the carriage-mounted device is completely portable, allowing it to be located wherever it's needed most. The unit has an adjustable throw angle from 0-50° elevation. An optional 7.5 KW booster pump elevates water pressure in the DB-60 as high as 200 psi for outstanding particle suppression.
The oscillating DB-45 can deliver a virtual dust barrier that covers more than 3,716 square meters, with a throw of nearly half a football field. With its 15 HP (11.2 Kw) fan, the DB-45 generates 510 CMM of airflow to maximise coverage and particle capture. Like the more powerful DB-60, the design also features adjustable elevation from 0-50°.
