Designed and created by its manufacturing division, C.W. MachineWorx, the machine is used to bring down harmful particulate matter that affect air quality around job sites by shooting a high-powered stream of mist at dust sources, which bring the particles to the ground.
Company Wrench notes because of recent medical research, many new environmental regulations have made companies who create particulate matter maintain a dust control plan to ensure the particles are controlled. With compliance failures causing steep fines, companies are looking at ways to prevent them from incurring penalties.
C.W. MachineWorx and Company Wrench recently unveiled their newest dust suppression unit at Con Expo/Con-Agg in Las Vegas. The Mini HAWC is a smaller, more water-conscious mobile diesel unit that features control system updates and the exclusive Cummins QSF.2.8L TIER 4 engine, making it the first and only mobile dust suppression unit in the world to achieve Tier 4 Emissions Standards, according to the two companies.
In addition to its Carroll headquarters, Company Wrench operates 13 branch locations throughout the United States that provide heavy equipment to the demolition, scrap recycling, construction and landfill industries.
