The DustBoss Atom from BossTek has been engineered to provide an unmatched level of mobility and performance, delivering effective particle suppression for new and existing applications. With a throw of 100 ft. (30 meters), the adjustable elevation angle and user-defined oscillation allow precise aiming of a powerful dust-capturing mist, which is comprised of millions of droplets per minute in the range of 50 to 200 microns – proven to be the most efficient size for most project needs.
The DustBoss Atom features a fan-less, self-contained design that incorporates remote control and 4G LTE telematics technologies as standard equipment to deliver an unprecedented combination of suppression and monitoring. The compact, diesel-powered unit fits in the back of a pickup truck, so it can be quickly positioned and relocated to address dust-generating activity directly at the source. It also has fork lift pockets on the front and back.
The Atom contains a Kohler KD440 power plant – a 9.1-hp air-cooled engine that meets Tier-IV Final emissions standards and complies with California CARB requirements. A unique air filtration system increases performance and lengthens service intervals, even in dusty environments. Its integrated fuel injection system and overhead cam design are coupled with a cast iron cylinder liner for consistent, reliable service. The engine and pump subassembly is secured by four isolation mounts that minimize vibration transfer to the frame. The high-impact stainless steel nozzle features a quick disconnect for easy replacement.
The system is fitted with a Cat Pumps 56G1 water pump that requires just 40 psi (0.344 bar) minimum inlet pressure, connected by a 1-in. cam-and-groove quick-disconnect fitting. The unit has specially formulated seals and high density, polished ceramic plungers that are optimized for long service life and durability. It also includes protection against pressure drops: if a low-pressure situation is detected, the unit shuts down to prevent damage to the pump or overheating of the engine.
