Automation for large-scale dust control: greater control and efficiency

One of the leaders in dust control has announced a strategic collaboration to apply computer-controlled automation for monitoring and managing dust suppression equipment. Driven by proprietary software, the resulting ‘intelligent’ systems can be programmed to manage start/stop cycles based on dust monitor readings, motion sensors, weather input or operator remote control. The technology allows users of DustBoss® equipment to automatically adjust elevation, oscillation range and other features on any number of machines to improve suppression performance and free up manpower for other tasks.
