Pro Air Solutions will unveil its new V22 atomised water cannon on Stand B1069.
According to Pro Air managing director Thomas Peinter, what he describes as “state-of-the-art equipment” is designed to enable mining companies to significantly reduce their impact on the environment by reducing both dust and excess water.
“Costing less than comparable equipment, the V series atomised water cannons have been purposely developed for dust suppression, with the V22 also designed to manage excess site water,” he said
The V22 hydro jet cannon radically lowers the amount of dust in the air by creating a very fine and efficient water mist that can cover a large area without soaking the environment.
“In tests it reduces dust emissions by up to 90 per cent,” Peintner said.
The cannon, which can be either controlled remotely or fully automated, includes an 18.5 kW turbine with a 70 m throw, patented nozzle technology to manage droplet size and direct flow more accurately, 360° rotation with 0-43° elevation, plus a range from 200 lit/min to 900 lit/min output from 10-30 bar.
“It can capture fine and harmful 2.5 µm particles, reduce downtime and maintenance due to dust, manage water volumes onsite, and utilise and manage a wide range of water qualities,” he said.
