Features To Have On Any Excavator Drill Attachment

Features To Have On Any Excavator Drill Attachment
Making equipment more versatile and available for a range of different types of jobs and applications is one of the most important considerations for a small company or a startup drilling service. By adding an excavator drill attachment to your equipment inventory you can extend the use of your excavator. Of course, the added benefit is that if you use an excavator drill attachment you don’t have to have a separate drill that is mounted on a wagon or a skid steer. With the attachment for the excavator you can also get into spaces that these larger systems can’t easily get to, and you also don’t have the added issues of storing the unit, transporting it or the more extensive maintenance required. Customized for the Excavator In many cases, you will find that companies offering an excavator drill attachment will simply sell a base unit that will need modifications to fit different models of excavators. This is often the lowest cost of model and is a universal type of design, but it can lead to a lot of issues with correct mounting and operation. There are some companies that offer fully customized excavator drill attachment designs. When ordering the drill, you will be asked to provide information on the excavator, and the drill attachment will come ready to be connected without the need for your operators to complete any modifications. Controls and Mounting Options When making a purchase and comparing different companies, models, and features, be sure to check the mounting options for the drill attachment. There may be the option for front, side, or rear mounting, and it will be essential to consider the job and the location that is best suited for the type of drilling required. Controls should be easy and efficient for the operator in the cab. In the best models, the controls will tie into the current hydraulics and operate on a joystick type of design which allows for accurate control and small to large movements that are smooth and precise. Optional Drifters Having the option to choose from different drifters for the excavator drill attachment will also be something to think about. As each application and drilling need will require a specific type of drifter, including percussion or rotary options, for fast drilling even through very challenging rocks and surfaces. By taking a close look at the different features and options with an excavator drill attachment you can easily see the benefits to the models you are considering. This will allow you to choose not only the right equipment but also the right manufacturer. Be the first to like. Like...

Why Install Misting Dust Suppression Systems?

Why Install Misting Dust Suppression Systems?
Dust can be insidious. It rises from the ground and settles everywhere it should not. In industrial concerns and small clean facilities, dust can be the enemy. Government health and safety regulations also fall into play as concerns for product purity and worker safety remain paramount in production lines. As a result, methods are sought to reduce the potential for dust to create a high risk situation. These include misting dust suppression systems. Here is how to deliver effective dust control. What Are Dust Suppression Systems? Dust suppression systems are divided into two main categories. These are wet and dry. As their name indicates, the former uses a wet method to suppress the dust, preventing it from rising from the ground or shelves. The latter type of dust suppression employs a system of bags and filters to collect the dust. The company then disposes of the material gathered at some time later. Companies can choose their dust suppression systems from a variety of sizes and shapes to suit their use. One of the increasingly popular and less expensive type of wet suppression is gaining in popularity. It is called the misting dust suppression system. What Are Misting Dust Suppression Systems? Misting dust suppression systems are considered wet systems. The misting system, depending upon its size and type, utilizes fans, pumps, pipes and/or nozzles to spray minute droplets of water into the air surrounding the workplace floor or shop area. The airborne dust particles and other small debris unseen by the human eye is attracted to the water droplets. When the dust particle and the water meet, the dust immediately ceases floating. It falls to the ground. If it is already on the ground, misting dust suppression systems will prevent it from rising. Although the misting system uses water droplets to control the dust, they are so fine they cannot affect the quality of the product or negatively impact the machinery. This is particularly valuable at vegetable packing facilities and granaries. Benefits of Misting Dusting Suppression Systems In addition to the above benefits of dust suppression, there are further benefits from using these wet dust suppression systems. They are invigorating for the employees who have to work in conditions where the temperatures and/or the humidity rise to unbearable heights. Using a wet system to suppress the dust in a shop or on a warehouse floor, also refreshes the air. It cools down the heat and decreases the level of humidity. Misting Dust Suppression Systems When it comes to installing a dust suppression system, industries have two basic choices: wet or dry. While chemicals can be employed in a wet system, one of the most effective types has proven to be a misting system. For its potential to provide the right services, misting dust depression systems have demonstrated their ability to be a cost-effective method to deliver more than dust control. Be the first to like.

Defining the Essential Elements in Rustic Doors

Defining the Essential Elements in Rustic Doors
Rustic is one of those words that is used a lot, but it can mean different things to different people. In many ways, it is a bit like retro or vintage, or perhaps even closer to the term classic or traditional. When it comes to rustic doors, however, there are some essential elements or features that are easy to spot. The one thing to keep in mind is that the term rustic doors doesn’t apply to hand made, roughly made or poorly designed doors; at least not when buying from a top online manufacturer and retailer. These doors are beautifully designed to have the solid, timeless and enduring look of natural wood doors, but also combine with the style, design elements, and features that make them a must-have door for custom homes, renovations and front entrance upgrades. The Wood While it is possible to find rustic doors in almost any type of wood, the most traditional, and the most classic is knotty alder. This is a very durable wood that is prized for having a consistent, uniform texture and even natural wood color. This makes staining the wood very easy and gives it a consistent color throughout the door. Knotty alder rustic doors will have a definite grain in the wood that is easy to see throughout the individual boards. There will be darker areas of burls or knots in the wood and the grain will seem to create whirls or patterns out from the knot. When stained, the grain and the knots tend to be a bit darker, creating a very unique and old-style look to the finished door. Solid Design While rustic doors can have windows or lites, including sidelites and transoms, they tend to be more solid in design, often with an upper or lower panel divided by styles and rails in the door. This creates a unique look to the door that adds to the depth and dimensionality of the design. Many of the designs of these old styles of doors offer wrought-iron features such as speakeasy grills, or even wrought-iron on the sidelites, transom or on the glass on the top of the door if present. Clavos, the antique-looking decorative nail heads, typically in black wrought iron, may be placed at the top and bottom of each board in the panels on the door. This adds a touch of old world elegance and charm that enhances the overall appearance of rustic doors, offering yet another easy-to-identify feature of this style.
