Dust Control Technology (DCT) is to expand on its current range of stationary dust suppression rings with the ability to produce geometric shapes, bars or other configurations, as required by its customers.
The new technology will be able to create an unlimited array of shapes and sizes, the company said in a press release, including the Dust Boss DB-R ring, which creates a curtain of mist around the cargo stream or specified area for containment of fugitive dust or odour.
The customised solutions “offers high-volume applications, such as radial stackers, crushers and screeners ,more focused and reliable suppression, taking the technology beyond perforated hoses and basic spray nozzles,” the company said. DCT has also developed the ability to supply custom spray bars and shapes under the DustBoss® DB-B family of spray bar products.
“This capability was developed in response to several requests by clients seeking a viable area-specific solution,” said DCT President Laura Stiverson. “We’ve found that the most effective dust suppression approach involves identifying where in the industrial process fugitive dust is produced and customising a solution that contains it at the point of emission.”
Customers can request a virtual site assessment to determine the optimum size and shape of a customised ring, working with experienced personnel to design a tailored system. The assessment includes such details as material properties and volume, width / length / speed of conveyors, pulley diameter and slope. DCT can also produce customised shapes from customer drawings, depending on the size, geometry and complexity.
Engineers at DCT have created custom systems for a variety of different industries, from aggregate to recycling to coal. With the launch of the customisation programme, the company is equipped to engineer systems of nearly any size and configuration.
“This product family was created to fulfill unmet customer needs, but it also helps protect workers and the surrounding community from industrial dust and odour,” Stiverson concluded. “We want all of our customers to have a solution that fits their individual needs, contributing to health and safety, good community relations and regulatory compliance.”
