Generac's new system provides more effective way of suppressing dust

Generac's new system provides more effective way of suppressing dust

Dust on a jobsite can have adverse effects on air quality and the environment, and it can put workers at risk. Generac Mobile's new dust suppression systems provide a breath of fresh air through a more effective way of suppressing dust and other unhealthy particulates.

Generac Mobile's dust suppression systems nebulize the water, creating a fine mist of water that evenly covers the area. Nebulized water particles have a 5 to 150 micron diameter, combining themselves with dust particulate down to 80 microns dragging them to the ground. Traditional systems, like a water hose, produce water droplets of about 1,000 microns in size, which only capture larger dust particles.

Generac Mobile offers model options for jobs big and small. The DF 7500 system can rotate 335 degrees, covering an area of 49,514 square feet (4600 square metres). It has a maximum horizontal range of 131 feet (40 metres) and a vertical range of 52 feet (16 metres). The unit has an electronic control panel on board, with an optional remote control and comes skid-mounted, with a trailer optional.

The DF 2.2 portable system has a maximum horizontal range of 42 feet (13 metres).
 
All Generac Mobile dust suppression systems feature an electro-polished stainless steel crown with nozzles and an electric engine-powered fan.
