Dust Control Technology has introduced a family of adjustable mounting brackets for the popular DustBoss® DB-RTM series of dustsuppressors. Developed in direct response to customer feedback, the new bracket design is available to suit the entire range of ringsizes from 17 – 100 in., and can be installed in around one hour. The DB-R is engineered specifically for use at conveyor dischargepoints, designed to create a virtual “curtain” of mist around the material flow for particle containment.
“Because of the wide variation in conveyor designs, in the past we’ve left the mounting of the rings to the individual customer,”explained Dust Control Technology CEO Edwin Peterson. “But it was clear that customers looked to us for guidance. So now we’vedesigned an adjustable bracket that can fit virtually any conveyor design, with movable arms to allow precise location of the atomisedmist circle to match the specific conveyor, material and outflow.”
First developed for a coal application, the DB-R fully encircles the discharging material to apply suppression directly as the flow exitsthe conveyor. With no moving parts, the simple yet effective engineering delivers focused dust suppression on a continuous-dutybasis, able to capture fugitive particles on radial stackers and other offloading points with a durable, intrinsically safe design. Thesolution is straightforward but effective, and customers are finding that it’s well suited to conveyor discharge of sand, aggregates,biomass and other traditionally dusty materials.
“For some bulk material handlers, it can be a very affordable alternative to more extensive dust management tactics,” Peterson said.“Larger operations are finding that the source-point suppression of the DB-R is the perfect complement to their open-area dustcontrol measures.”
The DB-R is currently available in nine standard sizes (17 – 100 in/43.2 – 254 cm in diameter). Available options for the DB-R includea booster pump to elevate low water pressures, a variety of nozzle sizes/configurations and water filtration. Customers can alsoorder the units with a 2-way valve and/or hose included.
