A Boels DF Smart dust suppression unit
European company, Boels Rental, has placed a large order with Italy’s DF Ecology for a fleet of its DF Smart portable dust suppression units.
The order for 20 units will be painted in Boels distinctive orange livery.
DF Ecology is a sister organisation to lighting set manufacturer, Tower Light, and Boels already has an extensive fleet of TowerLight products.
Boels decided to invest in DF Ecology products principally because of demands from its clients to provide environmental beneficial products.
Recent dry weather means that dust suppression on sites is becoming an important aspect to ensure the respiratory health of site workers.
The DF Smart is designed to provide outside workers with safe protection from many different kinds of airborne contaminates, producing a fine mist of water through a series of high-pressure jets. The mist is then propelled onto the site by a powerful fan, rendering the area free from unhealthy and hazardous material.
The DF Smart consumes from 3.6-5.8litres of water per minute at 2.5Bar.
