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.
Traditionally, waste management companies have operated using a simple "management of waste" approach to operating a MRF. Throughput targets and continuous operation (minimal downtime) were the main driving forces. The industry has changed however, and the focus moving forward is now on optimizing system performance and reliability, in conjunction with increasing recycling rates and a drive for a "greener" and more sustainable tomorrow.
When considering the addition of, or upgrade to, an "intelligent" MRF, for municipalities or private operators, the main factors should always be the client's (operator) current requirements, and evolving market needs, which include throughput, reliability, output quality, and adaptability. Equally important is a full understanding of what is really expected from any proposed system. Having an engaged and focused mindset for the project with the client from the beginning, will impact and drive the entire design process. This then impacts the overall project result, through to the productive, efficient, ongoing operation of the facility itself.
