phase, three direct-drive designs from Dust Control Technology (DCT) have been
certified as meeting Canadian Standards Association (CSA) standards: the

are believed to be the first atomized misting units for dust control to earn
the recognition.

 

Using standards developed by CSA, the evaluation and
certification process was conducted by SGS, a globally respected Nationally
Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) accredited by OSHA (Occupational Safety
and Health Administration). The organization is an ISO Guide 65 Certification
Body accredited by International Accounting Standards (IAS) to list products in
the U.S. The NRTL program was created by OSHA in 1995 to standardize testing
across multiple providers and has become the measure of safety testing for
equipment manufactured around the world.

The certification process required DCT to submit equipment
for rigorous testing under a specific set of criteria. In addition to equipment
testing and quality assurance process review, the company must meet an ongoing
series of benchmarks in order to maintain the certification, including factory
inspection and quarterly product inspections. 

 

The DustBoss series of oscillating atomizing sprayers is
designed for safe and effective open-area dust and odor suppression, with a
variety of safety features such as fans with heavy-duty guarding, atomizer
rings with pressure output that’s safe enough for bare fingers and industrial
strength, steel-framed wheeled carriages or skid mounts. The high-powered fans
distribute the atomized mist at noise levels below OSHA approved decibel
thresholds and low water usage allows safer control of runoff.
