Dust is a globally recognized problem with dust formed in the process of work activities recognised as a significant contributor to ill-health



As a means of control water-suppression reduces dust clouds but needs to be applied correctly and throughout the duration of the work activity to be effective.


Rather than using a person with a hose to suppress dust, substituting them with a water misting unit allows you to:


(a) remove site personnel from the risk zone.

(b) replace a water jet with a water mist - which is more effective at dust suppression.

(c) reduce the water pooling that hose jets produce.

(d) save money - water misting units are much cheaper to operate than a person with a hose !


Envirogard hires both small portable and large towable water misting units for dust and odour suppression. 

Dust Fighter DF Smart All-In-One Misting Cannon

The DF Smart All-In-One is an advanced version of the original DF Smart portable mist cannon.  It is designed for customers who need a complete solution for dust suppression or odour control in locations where a water connection is not readily available. 

It can be used as a ground static unit, elevated on a platform or building (which increases its range and coverage) or even mounted on a vehicle with a generating set.

The All-In-One combines a misting fan with a 1000 litre IBC water tank and an electric pump.  Users only need to fill the tank with water and connect a 110v power supply (32A coupler) and the unit will discharge a fine mist of water droplets to suppress airborne dust. 

The All-In-One will operate for approx. 8.0 hours between refills or continuously if connected to a water supply - for continuous operation connect a 1/2" hose to the tank quick-coupling.  An auto-refill valve will keep the tank topped up without it overflowing.

Horizontal range is 15 metres (still air) and 6 metres vertically at ground level - the horizontal range increases when the unit is elevated above ground level e.g. placed on the upper floor of a building.

Dust Fighter DF Smart Portable Misting Cannon

The DF Smart portable was originated by Italian company DF Ecologia.  Using water from a standard 1/2" hose and running on a 110v supply it produces finely divided water droplets in the size range 40-120 micron diameter. 

At this size the water droplets can easily combine with dust particles of similar dimensions and precipitate them out of the air.  The water mist covers and envelops the dust cloud more effectively than a spray from a hose.

It's compact size means it can be easily handled by one person, simply wheeled into place - it can even pass through standard doors.  It's size makes it suitable for use inside buildings as well as outside.  It is frugal in it's use of water - a simple valve allows the user to throttle water throughput - and it won't stop running if water flow is restricted.

Dust Fighter DF Mini Mist

It's not always practicable to have equipment constantly connected to a water supply. 

The DF Mini offers a solution to this with an integral tank which allows operation for several hours between refills.

The DF Mini is for indoor or local outdoor applications. 

It does not utilise a fan to deliver the mist - useful where users want to avoid air movement disturbing the workplace, and this also means it is extremely quiet in operation.

It's telescopic mast, with the tilt facility of the mist head, delivers a fine water mist up to 8 metres and - depending on the mist nozzles selected - it will run for up to 5 hours between refill. 

In addition to dust suppression it can also be used for odour control; the odour-agent can be dosed direct to the water tank. 

Simply fill the tank, wheel into place, and connect to 110v to operate.
