Dust suppression for conveyor discharge points

An innovative new dust suppression device has been introduced specifically for use at conveyor discharge points, designed to create a virtual curtain around the material flow for outstanding particle containment. The DustBoss® DB-RTM Ring from Dust Control Technology is built with a high-quality stainless steel ring that delivers millions of droplets (diameter 50–200 microns) per minute. By surrounding the discharge flow on all sides, the DustBoss Ring provides simple, focused dust management. “This design was first developed for a coal application,” explained DCT CEO Edwin Peterson. “The momentum created while discharging dry coal was propelling large amounts of dust into the air”. The solution to this problem is simple but effective and it’s well suited to conveyor discharge of sand, aggregates, biomass or other traditionally dusty materials. The ring is available in five standard sizes, from 17“ (43.2 cm) to 100“ (254 cm) in diameter. They all can be customized with DCT’s Variable Particle Sizing® technology.
