MINING DUST SUPPRESSION
The rugged durability of Nelson Big Gun® sprinklers make them a favorite for dust suppression. Big Guns are preferred because of the ability to move a large amount of water in a short time. The large nozzle is less likely to plug and the filtration requirements are minimal. All bearings on the gun are sealed ball bearings. Some sprinklers are mounted on high towers in order to throw over the piles. Alternatively, a high trajectory Big Gun sprinkler (fixed 43° and adjustable 15-45° models available) can achieve the necessary stream height to reduce tower height and clear the top of the piles.
