Tower systems are among the best dust control solutions that deliver an extended throw that delivers a huge mist barrier. As such, atomizing towers offer the ideal and concentrated coverage to all dust generation points as well as all the large areas that require constant dust control. The normal tower mounts include the atomized misting cannon unit mounted on carbon steel and a galvanized tower mount. Tower mounts are designed to handle ongoing dust-generating operations in fixed locations. Also, these systems have a dip galvanized base with steel pipe with a diameter of between 15 to 25 cm (6 to 10 inches) and a maximum of 6 meters (30 feet) in length. Similarly, motorized or manual height adjustment features mean operators can easily adjust the height from the ground. Once fitted with the right electric jack, you can adjust the height via a control panel and from a distant location.
Rewards Of Using Tower-Mounted Dust Suppression Strategy
Controls airborne and surface dust
Fugitive dust in the air can be controlled effectively using BossTek atomized mist. After the mist hits the ground, it seals the dust creation point, thus reducing the dust particles released by any action. Each tower mount unit coverage area depends on the fan size, nozzles, barrel, atomizing ring, and oscillation degree. Both the total coverage and the throw distance can be increased further when you raise the height of your machine.
Effective for top to bottom dust suppression
Different industries can have different-size dust-generating activities. That means they’ll pile to substantial heights, thus evading the characteristic dust suppression range achieved by most dust control techniques. In increasing the height of your tower mount unit, its vertical reach is extended to reach the highest dust-generating activities. Increasing the parameters of dust suppression technology will depend on the chances of customizing the equipment as well as the installation for different operating environments and materials. Also, elevating your units helps improve your dust control strategy. As such, dust-generating processes and airborne particles can easily be controlled at your job site by employing effective dust control equipment.
Improves the angle of attack
Applying Newton’s gravitational theory, atomized dust suppression technology works alongside gravity, hence helping drop dust particles onto the ground. However, when you place the Tower mount units above the stationary dust-generating activities and aim its plume downward, the generated 50 – 200-micron size droplets get projected straight onto the material. This creates a downward movement of mist that suppresses dust particles in the air and even traps all the ground-level dust.
Powers through wind
It’s worth mentioning the most difficult variable; the wind is highly unpredictable. It can come from different directions with varying strengths. As such, earth gusts make effective dust control challenging. Using tower-mounted units, it’s easy to aim atomized mist directly to target dust from the source thus preventing particle migration. Tower units are developed so they can withstand wind loads of about 161 kph (100 mph). What’s more, you can have your tower-mounted units fully automated. By fitting the units with weather and wind sensors, it becomes easy to program them to automatically adjust the height and oscillation range based on the changing conditions.
Misting cannon technology helps you customize your dust suppression solution. Therefore, taking time to discuss your site’s needs can help specialists come up with the right dust suppression solution for your needs.
