64 • ROCK products • February 2019 EQUIPMENT & TECHNOLOGY MATERIAL HANDLING & CONVEYING BossTek updated its family of self-powered dust-suppression equip- ment with Tier IV Final-compliant generators, ensuring compliance in all 50 states. The company made the announcement with the debut of the new DustBoss DB-60 Fusion, a field- proven suppression system driven by a 25-hp electric motor and paired with a gen set powered by a heavy-duty, 4-cycle indirect injection diesel engine. Designed, engineered and assembled in the United States, the generator features a dual-containment fuel cell, heavy gauge lockable enclosure and oversized brushless alternator. Permanently mounted on a rugged road-worthy trailer, the company's Fusion lineup is proving to be a pop- ular and effective means of delivering versatile, mobile dust suppression technology to sites that lack a readily available power source. The company expects to unveil two other Fusion models in early 2019. The new generator series is designed with sound attenuation for excellent noise reduction and a multi-voltage switch with utility power outlet in all voltage modes. The digital engine/ generator controller is equipped with single button stop/start and an 80-gal. fuel capacity, giving units a run time of more than 24 hours at 45 kVa. Like its previous Fusion systems, Boss- Tek warrantees the DB-60 Fusion for three years/3,000 hours, with five- year/5,000-hour coverage on the electric motor and a two-year/2,000- hour warranty on the generator. The DustBoss DB-60 Fusion drives pressurized water through a circular stainless steel manifold with 30 atom- izing spray nozzles, then launches millions of tiny droplets with a powerful fan that produces 30,000 CFM (849.50 CMM) of air flow. A touchscreen panel for controlling the dust suppression unit is encased in a NEMA 3R cabinet, allowing operators to control oscillation, booster pump, fan and water. "Maintaining air quality is essential for communities near a demolition project, mining operation or other bulk mate- rial handling activities, but even in places with little infrastructure, dust can choke worksites and foul equip- ment," said Project Engineer Jason Lesch. "We engineered the Fusion to be highly mobile, with its own power source, so it can be easily towed any- where on a job site." Equipped with an in-line 75 mesh, 200- micron filter, the unit can be specified with special filtration to accommodate non-potable water sources. In addition, the new design can be optimized with a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) to precisely adjust fan speed. An optional dosing pump is available for precise metering of additives to enhance par- ticle control even further. BossTek, Vibratory Belt Conveyors From BPS Offer Durability Vibratory Belt Conveyors from Best Process Solutions (BPS) are highly customizable depending on the user's needs. Available in various lengths, the units can be tandem-mounted in series for longer lengths as needed. Design features include safety side panels/guards; two counter-rotating motors (230/460 volt, 3 phase, 60 cycle); UL controls available; can have up to four vibratory tables; and tubular trough construction. Specialized conveyors are available for application in concrete molds with con- tinuous fill line. The conveyor vibrates to minimize air bubbles while continu- ing to move. BPS also offers a loss-in-weight vibratory batch feeder system for dry-processing industries. The state-of-the art system assures accurate and uniform flow of a wide range of materials. The system is com- prised of Model MTD-4K Bulk Bag Discharger and feeder that sit on load cells with controls to stop the feed when it reaches the desired weight. BPS manufactures a complete line of custom-engineered bulk-processing equipment and systems. With more than 100 years' combined experience, the company serves a wide variety of dry processing industries from chemicals and food to aggregates and recycling.
