ACE Plant have developed a 600gal capacity version of their versatile Quickspray dust-suppression unit for the quarrying industry. Designed for use with loading shovels, the new unit offers 50% more capacity than the telehandler-mounted model, which is commonly used in the demolition and recycling sectors.
A spokesman for ACE Plant said: ‘Using Quickspray in quarries helps overcome the problem of relatively low utilization of vehicle and dust-suppression unit combinations. Because of the higher payload capability of a loading shovel, we have increased the unit’s water capacity, thereby reducing the frequency of refilling. Also, Quickspray’s mobility provides access to areas unreachable by other systems.
The dust-suppression system features ACE Plant’s hydraulic spinning disc water applicator, which uses substantially less water than other systems and ensures full control of the spray rate, from a fine mist to a heavy drizzle. No water is wasted through its ball valve control.
