The DustBoss DB-60 Fusion is a versatile and transportable atomized mist unit combines a workhorse electric dust suppression design with a 45-kw generator set. The powerful suppression system has an efficient diesel generator that can be hauled to job sites that lack a convenient power source. The innovation allows the unit to deliver up to 62,800 sq ft of coverage.

“Controlling air quality is essential for communities surrounding a construction or demolition project, but even in places with little infrastructure, dust can choke worksites and foul equipment,” said DCT president Laura Stiverson. “We engineered the Fusion to be highly mobile, with its own power source, able to be easily towed anywhere on a job site.”

The DB-60 Fusion forces water through a circular stainless steel manifold with 30 atomizing spray nozzles, then launches millions of tiny droplets with a powerful 25-hp fan that produces 30,000 CFM of air flow. Atomized mist droplets of 50 to 200 microns in size are thrown out in a 200-ft 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, that can require 500 gal/min or more of water, the DB-60 uses about 23 gal/min to help avoid pooling or runoff.

The unit is paired with a 45-kw gen set featuring a John Deere Tier III Flex engine featuring a 100-gal fuel tank, allowing up to 24 hours of runtime. The efficient diesel engine delivers 480 volts with a full load current of 46 amps. The Fusion also has a 120-volt outlet to provide jobsite power for any accessories or tools.
