dctJune 20, 2014, Peoria, Ill. – Developed in direct response
to customer feedback, the new adjustable bracket design for the popular
DustBoss DB-RTM series of dust suppressors is available to suit the entire
range of ring sizes from 17-100 inches, and can be installed in about an hour.
The DB-R is engineered specifically for use at conveyor discharge points,
designed to create a virtual curtain of mist around the material flow for
outstanding 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’ve designed an adjustable bracket that can fit virtually any conveyor
design, with movable arms to allow precise location of the atomized mist 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
exits the conveyor. With no moving parts, the simple yet effective engineering
delivers focused dust suppression on a continuous-duty basis, able to capture
fugitive particles on radial stackers and other offloading points with a
durable, intrinsically safe design. The solution 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 dust control measures.” 

 

The DB-R is currently available in nine standard sizes
(17-100" / 43.2-254 cm) in diameter. Available options for the DB-R
include a booster pump to elevate low water pressures, a variety of nozzle
sizes/configurations and water filtration. 
Customers can also order the units with a 2-way valve and/or hose
included.
