Dust Suppression Our low pressure SCRUBmist patented nozzle systems are extremely effective at removing minute airborne dust particles from work environments and serve to improve working conditions for staff and machinery while at the same time vastly decreasing the possibility of workplace dust explosions. Our SCRUBmist system generate trillions of “dry mist” droplets 5 to 15 micron-size particles from a single litre of water. These droplets are so small they are electro-statically charged and attract the air borne dust particles which subsequently fall out of the air under the weight of the droplets and attracted dust. Compared to traditional sprinkler type systems that generate drops thousands of times larger and use multiple litres of water per sprinkler per minute, SCRUBmist systems are vastly more effective at eliminating dust, plus they use as little as 0.3 litres per nozzle per minute, saving resources, is an ecological friendly system and massively lowering water usage costs. Even more importantly the system does not increase the moisture level of the goods or materials being processed- a major problem of sprinkler or other “mist” systems. This latter feature is particularly important in applications such as biomass transport at power plants where maintaining the original moisture level of the biomass is an extremely important aspect for the fuel’s burn efficiency. SCRUBmist systems also compare favourably to dust vacuuming systems. Extraction systems require major capital outlays to enclose the environment in question and the installation of heavy duty dust removal equipment. In addition, these systems simply move the dust from one area to another but the dust and explosion potential have not necessarily been resolved. SCRUBmist systems are significantly less costly and are installed in the open air or within existing structures and they definitively resolve the dust problems at their source. Summary of SCRUBmist Dust Neutralisation Benefits ● Improvement in staff working conditions - improved staff productivity ● Longer equipment life cycles - less frequent replacement outlays ● Vastly lower probability of dust explosion - increased safety SCRUBmist Applications ● Coal mines ● Power generating plants ● Wood working facilities ● Rock quarries ● Cement factories Other industrial facilities where dust is a problem………

Fire Suppression

Our Water Mist Extinguishers and Water Mist Flood Systems are ideal for kitchens, food preparation areas, computer rooms, power and communications equipment rooms, hospitals, “clean rooms” or for protecting valuable assets (books, documents or archives) etc. Our fire suppression systems, be it portable extinguishers or flood systems, uses state-of-the-art and patented low pressure “water only” technology to provide the most cost effective fire suppression systems in the world………………….


Decontamination and Infection Control

CLEANSEmist systems are capable of generating hundreds of billions of 15 micron-sized droplets from a single litre of solution. In a practical sense, this means the technology can cover hundreds of square meters of a targeted surface area, be they objects, livestock or operating room floors and walls from a small amount of cleansing solution - a fraction of the solution required by current spray technologies. This ensures the penetration of hard-to-reach areas, complex and difficult geometries.
