BossTek introduced the DustBoss Atom for mobile dust and particle suppression.

The self-contained, fan-less design incorporates 4G LTE telematics technologies and remote-control features to deliver both suppression and monitoring, BossTek says.

The compact, diesel-powered Atom features a Kohler KD440 power plant – a 9.1-hp, air-cooled engine that meets Tier 4 Final emissions standards, according to the company. According to BossTek, the Atom also features a throw of 100 ft., and the adjustable elevation angle and user-defined oscillation allow precise aiming of dust-capturing mist.

The unit features an air filtration system that lengthens service intervals and increases performance, BossTek adds. Also, the DustBoss Atom fits in the back of a pickup truck and can be quickly relocated and positioned. It features fork lift pockets on the front and back, as well.

“After more than 15 years of designing purpose-built dust suppression equipment in a variety of sizes and styles, we found some companies expressed a desire for a smaller, more maneuverable unit with a lower price point,” says Mike Lewis, vice president of sales at BossTek. “This machine is well-suited to demolition projects, recycling operations, transfer stations, bulk material processing, ports/shipping applications, quarrying/crushing, biomass handling, concrete curing and even indoor operations where significant air movement may be undesirable.”

The DustBoss Atom is fitted with a Cat Pumps 56G1 water pump that requires just 40 psi minimum inlet pressure, the company says, connected by a 1-in. cam-and-groove quick-disconnect fitting. The unit has specially-formulated seals and high-density ceramic plungers to optimize service life and durability, BossTek says.

“In addition to its compact size, what really sets this unit apart from other designs is the built-in communications features,” Lewis says. “The handheld remote controls virtually every function, and the telematics provide a web-based platform to monitor status and streamline service and support.”
