BossTek has updated its family of self-powered dust suppression equipment with Tier IV Final-compliant generators, ensuring compliance in all 50 states and Canada.  BossTek made the announcement with the debut of the new DustBoss DB-60 Fusion, a field-proven suppression system driven by a high-reliability 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 USA, the generator features a dual-containment fuel cell, heavy gauge lockable enclosure and oversized brushless alternator for easy starting.  

Permanently mounted on a rugged road-worthy trailer, the company's Fusion lineup is proving to be a popular 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, giving customers the ability to select the size and coverage range needed to best suit their operations.

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-gallon fuel capacity, giving the units a run time of more than 24 hours at a prime rating of 45 kVa.  Like its previous Fusion systems, BossTek warrantees the DB-60 Fusion for three years / 3,000 hours, with 5-year / 5,000 coverage on the electric motor and a 2-year / 2,000 hour warranty on the generator.

What Tier IV Means
Tier 4 refers to the latest emission milestone established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the California Air Resources Board (CARB).  The regulations apply to new engines found in off-road equipment, including construction, mining and agricultural equipment, as well as marine vessels, locomotives and stationary engines used in industrial and power generation applications.  

Tier IV-compliant engines are designed to significantly reduce emissions of particulate matter (PM) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) to near zero levels.  Relative to previous emissions standards, Tier IV-compliant engines reduce emissions by over 95 percent for most agricultural and construction equipment and just over 86 percent for much larger applications such as locomotives and marine vessels.  The Tier 4 emission standards are roughly similar to emission reduction requirements for engines that power heavy-duty trucks.

The touch screen control panel is protected in a NEMA 3R cabinet.

How It Works
The DB-60 Fusion drives pressurized water through a circular stainless steel manifold with 30 atomizing spray nozzles, then launches millions of tiny droplets with a powerful fan that produces 30,000 CFM (849.50 CMM) of air flow.  Atomized mist droplets of 50 to 200 microns in size are thrown out in a 200 foot (60 meter) cone at an adjustable 0 to 50° elevation angle, capturing airborne dust particles and dragging them to the ground.  Unlike industrial sprinklers used for the same purpose, which can require hundreds of gallons of water per minute, the DB-60 only uses about 23 GPM (87 LPM) to help avoid pooling or runoff.

A touch screen panel for controlling the dust suppression unit is encased in a NEMA 3R cabinet, allowing operators to control oscillation, booster pump, fan and water.  The cabinet is constructed for outdoor use, designed to provide protection against solid foreign objects (such as dirt), air (dust, emissions), water (rain, sleet, snow) and ice formation.  The system provides valuable mobility and versatility in one of the most popular and effective dust suppression designs on the market, able to deliver up to 62,800 square feet (5,834 square meters) of coverage.  

"Maintaining air quality is essential for communities near a demolition project, mining operation or other bulk material handling activities, but even in places with little infrastructure, dust can choke worksites and foul equipment," said Project Engineer Jason Lesch.  

"We engineered the Fusion to be highly mobile, with its own power source, so it can be easily towed anywhere 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 particle control even further. 

The system’s gen set is powered by a heavy-duty 4-cycle diesel engine.

LEED changes a boost for C&D

Construction and demolition (C&D) materials are hefty. It is why we can so effectively build roads, bridges and buildings out of them. It's also why, by weight, they are the most significant material in the North American waste stream. This creates a challenge for recycling, as it's usually too expensive, in terms of ROI, to ship most recovered C&D end products, including wood, concrete, drywall, asphalt, and asphalt shingles.

New sidewall protection for OTR tires designed for concrete and aggregates recycling

At concrete and aggregate recycling sites, recycled aggregate is produced by crushing concrete and asphalt to reuse the aggregate in the construction industry as a base for roads or building foundations.  To keep operations running site managers rely on loaders to push large jagged chunks of torn up sidewalk, roadway or building materials - which can contain steel rebar - to the crushing line to reduce its size.

Cat multi-processors feature quick-change jaws, greater cutting/crushing forces, increased speed, durable design

Three new Cat MP332, MP345 and MP365 Multi-Processor models are heavy-duty, high-production tools that accept multiple interchangeable jaws for taking on a variety of specialized demolition tasks. The new models, compared with previous models, can cycle 50 percent faster and generate up to 19 percent greater cutting/crushing forces. An innovative locking system enables a single operator to typically change jaw types in 15 minutes or less, using only standard hand tools. An included stand securely and stably holds unused jaw sets.

  • Concrete Cutter: outer jaw cracks concrete, inner jaw shears steel
  • Demolition: cracks thick concrete structures
  • Pulverizer: crushes concrete, separates rebar
  • Shear: cuts structural steel, pipe, cable
  • Tank Shear: cleanly cuts tanks or plate steel at right angle on three sides
  • Universal: cuts steel and crushes concrete

New Rockster wind sifter RVB1700 designed to "blow away" impurities

Austria-based company Rockster Recycler GmbH has developed a wind sifter for their mobile crushers. With relatively little effort, final products produced can be significantly increased in value. Partially unavoidable contamination in crushed materials are simply "blown away." The wind sifter RVB1700 separates non-mineral components, including paper, wood or  foils, from crushed material. This results in a cleaner and higher quality final product, whereby non-mineral substances are separated from mineral substances.
