Dustboss suppression offers total reliability
BooBoo Plant Hire adds its eighth DustBoss DB60 mobile dust suppression unit to its rental fleet, including 14 Motofogs, confirming Inmalo as the UK’s leading supplier of portable dust suppression solutions for the construction and demolition market. Having previously encountered issues with other dust suppression systems relating to manoeuverability, water and power supply, and with each site having its own set of challenging conditions, BooBoo Plant Hire’s Director, Terry Guilder, looked to Inmalo Ltd for the solution. BooBoo now have one of the largest dust suppression rental fleets in the country.
Isle of Dogs Demolition
The new DustBoss’s first outing immediately put it to the test on the Isle of Dogs, close to the financial sector of London’s Docklands. This large-scale demolition project is in the very capable hands of The Erith Group who are keen to ensure they have the best and widest coverage of dust suppression available to ensure minimal impact to nearby residents and the environment. The DustBoss DB60 has the best performance of any dust suppression unit they’ve tried to date with a massive 65m throw and 1900SqM coverage.
Martin, one of Erith’s site managers said, “DustBoss is providing great coverage where there is concentrated heavy demolition activity, not only reducing the effects on our neighbours but also on our workforce. The DustBoss systems use a high powered fan to drive air through a ring of high pressure water jets, creating a tunneled water vapour mist which, as you can see, is proving very effective”.
Wakefield City Centre Blowdown
BooBoo Plant Hire’s most recent rental of the DustBoss DB60s’ was to DSR Demolition Ltd.
Specializing in ‘Blowdowns’, DSR were tasked with demolishing the Rishworth Street muti-storey car park in Wakefield which sits in the confined town centre’s Old Quarter within only 7 metres of residential houses, offices and civic buildings.
A controlled blowdown collapse provided the quickest and least disruptive option for Wakefield Council even though this meant evacuating the immediate area for several days. While DSR wrapped the building to suppress and contain the controlled explosion and dust, a blowdown can never be dust or debris free. Two DB60 units, one positioned at each end of Rishworth Street to provide containment and post-explosion confinement, helped bring dust particles down as quickly as possible within the immediate demolition site.
The latest DustBoss DB60 purchases further underline confidence in Inmalo’s dust suppression range of equipment and confirms them as market leaders in this area of portable dust suppression. In addition to the DB60 units, four JCB G66QS 60kVA generators have been supplied by Inmalo to provide a dedicated power supply.
“We’re very confident that we now have the right mix of equipment to satisfy most of our clients’ demolition projects and that we have a partner in Inmalo who provides a quality and reliable product, technical knowledge and a responsive back-up service”, says Terry.
Inmalo MD, John Polak, said, “We are delighted to be working with Terry at BooBoo Plant Hire, a discerning and exacting customer and to see the positive effect that DustBoss is having on these major high profile projects. The DustBoss DB60 with its robust build, awesome power and range, backed up by an unconditional 3-year warranty has enabled BooBoo to reach out to its biggest customers with confidence.
