Mobile Dust Control System Introduced

The DustBoss DB-100 Fusion trailer-mounted dust control system has a powerful atomized mist design featuring a range of 100 m and the ability to deliver 140,000 sq ft of coverage area.  

The system is powered by its own 480-volt/150-kw generator with a 6.8-l John Deere Tier III flex diesel engine, all securely mounted on one of several roadworthy dual-axle trailer options with stabilizing jacks.  

Designed for large open-air applications such as mines, coal handling plants, and aggregate operations, the unit delivers effective particle control in a highly-mobile platform that can be positioned directly at the source of dust-generating activities, even on sites without an available power supply. The new design can even be specified with a high-lift pump for drawing water from a stationary source, such as a private pond.

“We had many discussions with customers who were interested in expanding their dust management coverage, after seeing our smaller DB-60 Fusion,” said Dust Control Technology president Laura Stiverson. “We engineered the new design to meet those needs, yet still remain highly mobile, able to be towed easily just about anywhere on a job site.”

The versatile DB-100 Fusion features a 150-gal fuel tank, providing about 32 hours of run time without refueling. Doors are equipped with hinges and door stops for easy access, and the generator’s engine compartment is fitted with sound attenuation. Day-to-day operation can typically be managed by the remotely located on/off switch outside of the enclosure. For convenience, a 120-volt receptacle for auxiliary tools and a plug-in for the battery charger and block heater are also located outside.

To achieve its 100-m throw distance, the DB-100 employs a 60-hp electric fan motor coupled with 10-90 PSI of inlet water pressure that’s run through a booster pump to achieve pressures as high as 250 PSI total.  Unlike industrial sprinkler systems used for dust management that can require as much as 500 gal/min of water, the DB-100 Fusion uses only about 38 gal/min to help avoid pooling or runoff. The unit shatters the inlet stream into millions of tiny droplets in the range of 50-200 microns -- an ideal size for suppressing fugitive dust particles in most cases. The device can also be customized with alternative nozzle options for specialized applications.
