A specialised spray nozzle system that lowers water consumption and reduces maintenance expenses for dust suppression is now available from Reynolds Soil Technologies (RST Solutions).
RST Solutions operations and technical director David Handel with a modified spray designed to attach to a standard firefighting pump.
The ‘Quickfit’ Spray Nozzle is easy to install and applied externally via a bracket mounted onto a dispersion point on the outside of a chute, allowing for a fine particle spray to bind with dust molecules and suppress them as material passes through the internal chamber.
“Having the nozzle easily accessed from the outside of chutes allows for quick and easy installation, maintenance and modification that is considerably less labour-intense,” RST Solutions operations and technical director David Handel said.
“We also saw a way for us to reduce overall maintenance requirements by making a wider nozzle that is less prone to blockage and encasing the body of the nozzle in a urethane block to protect from damage caused by falling debris.
The external bracket allows operators ease of access to maintain and modify spray systems from the outside of an enclosure, significantly reducing the time and expense involved in maintaining traditional internal nozzle systems.
Handel said the ‘Quickfit’ Spray Nozzle was designed with a 2mm opening to reduce the frequency of blockages, encased in a urethane block that protects the nozzle from damage caused by falling materials.
“When combined with our product, RT60 Spray Plus, the ‘Quickfit’ nozzle system optimizes dust suppressant capabilities by altering the characteristics of the water to electrostatically attract and capture smaller dust particles at a considerably faster rate than water alone,” he explained.
“The ‘Quickfit’ Spray Nozzle system can be used with water alone, the true capabilities of the system are activated once paired with our RT60 Spray Plus additive product,” Handel said.
