In the industrial environment a dust control action to be effective requires the possibility to generate a uniform water distribution. This allows to uniformly humidify the stock piles making careful use of the water resource and also avoids possible slides due to run-offs.

Komet Automatic Brake System

Komet Automatic Brake System

This mechanism is designed to allow the gun to maintain a constant rotation speed in all arising operating conditions independently of the prevailing pressure and flow levels.

  • Komet Automatic Brake System - waiting to operate
    While waiting to operate, the brake disc of the gun rests on the lower brake pads.
  • Komet Automatic Brake System - increasing pressure
    While increasing operating pressure, the brake disc is pressed against the upper brake pads, generating a braking force.
  • Komet Automatic Brake System - high pressure
    A higher operating pressure generates a bigger braking force in order to compensate for the stronger rotational force generated by the drive system.
  • Self-adjusted brake force - ideal rotation speed at all pressures

  • Brake force too high - rotation speed too slow
    Brake force too high
    Rotation speed too slow
  • Brake force too low - rotation speed too fast

Komet Deflector

This innovative device is capable of distributing the water uniformly, starting from the gun over its entire throw range. The technology and fluid dynamic elements designed into this component let the deflector adapt its operation to all pressure levels and upcoming changes.

The length of the throw determines the area covered by the dust control action. A longer throw increases the dust controlled area and reduces the instantaneous water application rate achieving the objective of the dust control in an excellent way. A reduced instantaneous water application rate allows for an effective dust control action and helps to avoid run-offs and ponding.

Komet Fluid Dynamics

While in operation the deflector is designed to minimize the oscillation originating from the interaction with the water stream. This is fundamental in order to obtain a laminar water stream exiting the nozzle generating unrivaled throw values.

Komet Barrel

The configuration of the barrel and its internal straightening vanes has been optimized with the use of the most advanced hydraulic simulation software allowing the water to reach the nozzle with the least possible turbulences and pressure losses.

Komet Nozzle

The particular shape of the Komet nozzle, manufactured with technical polymers, allows the transition from the diameter of the barrel to the diameter defined for the irrigation with the water retaining the maximum velocity and exiting the nozzle with a perfectly round water stream to reach unrivaled throw values.

In the industrial environment water available for dust control systems is normally limited. This makes it mandatory to use the allocated water resource very effectively and distribute it as uniformly as possible. An overall fast rotating dust control gun advancing with small steps is required to achieve this.

Komet Energy System

Due to the use of innovative materials with reduced specific weight and advanced tribological properties combined with the reciprocal calibration of the different components and respective systems, we were able to obtain the optimal performance from the automatic brake and the low inertia drive system. This allows for an efficient operation of the gun in all operating conditions including lower and variable pressure levels.

Komet Balance System

The Komet Balance System is based on the interaction between the self-adjusting brake and deflector. The resulting balanced operating mode allows for an excellent performance at all pressure and flow levels. The interactive balancing between the two elements is continuous and automatic.

It is important that every dust control system operates reliable in order to avoid damages to the environment and loss of materials. The dust control gun not being continuously monitored, has to operate always at its best without the necessity of adjustments or maintenance.

bThe drive arm mechanism is made of technical polymers that ensure superior performance and excellent resistance to wear, superior to aluminum. The reduced weight of the parts allows for very good operation even at low pressures.

cThe Automatic Brake System is unique in its function due to the materials used. The internal parts are made of chemically treated stainless steel and inserted into an anodized aluminium housing to increase the resistance to corrosion and wear.

Komet Self Control

With changing operating conditions such as pressure and flow the gun self-adjusts all systems in order to allow always for an operation at best efficiency level.

Komet Design

Reliability is a main concern when designing our products. Each component is developed with the utmost care and the materials are selected to satisfy the requirements of the intended application environment.

Komet Quality

The precision tooling of every component, the strict quality control during every manufacturing step and the final water test of every single gun are our guarantee of a quality control at its best.

It’s fundamental that a gun designed for the purpose of dust suppression is adaptable to most situations, keeping excellent performance in all types of dust suppression installations and atmospheric conditions including extreme ones.

Komet Vari-Angle

The adjustment of the trajectory angle without internal flow restriction allows to adapt the irrigation to different climatic conditions including stronger winds. This capability to adjust is a real advantage also in cases where obstacles such as power lines need to be avoided.

  • Komet Vari-Angle

    The trajectory angle can be manually adjusted between 15° and 45°

  • Different trajectory angle adjustments to suit the stock pile configurations

Komet Corrosion Protection

Since the quality of the water used in this type of applications is not always perfectly suitable, Komet offers a corrosion protected type of the Komet Twin dust control guns that can be used in adverse environmental conditions

Komet Design Support

The correct installation and use of dust control guns in complex industrial dust control systems requires an extensive knowledge. The experience acquired with all the dust control systems we have equipped around the world makes us a reliable partner in giving valuable advice for the best use and set-up of our products.
