Waste / Recycling

Christchurch Compost Facility

Issue: Odour

Solutions: Spraystream Cannon

Product Used: SS20 Platform and Generator

Composting is a delicate business, and despite best operational efforts odours can and do occur. A fixed line system had already been installed around the site periphery, however further control was required to target the source of the odours. biOx’s SS20 Platform Unit was recommended as an effective solution. The SS20 Platform Unit is optimised for odour control thanks to the high pressure and low volume required to run the unit, making it a cost-effective solution to troublesome odours. The platform comes with an extendable telescopic tower allowing the cannon to be raised on site, which provides further throw and wider odour neutralising potential. The result was an improvement in site odour levels and a pro-active and appreciated effort by stakeholders.

Auckland Industrial Waste Sorting Facility

Issue: Dust

Solutions: Fixed Line

Product Used: Multi Zone (4) Fogging System

An Industrial waste sorting facility recently opened in Central Auckland required a biOx fogging system to optimise the site operations and keep neighbours and local Council onside from day one. biOx was brought on-board to provide a fixed line fogging system to control the excessive dust expected from the facility. Despite the tight timeframes this project was installed and commissioned on time and before any waste was received onsite.

Demolition/ Construction Sites

Auckland City Construction Project

Issue: Dust

Solutions: Spray Stream Cannon

Product Used: SS41 Trailer Unit

biOx was asked to provide a large site-wide dust solution for a highly- visible Auckland construction site. Initially intended to be for a short term hire, the SS41 Trailer Unit was used for over three months during summer 2016. The ability to reduce the volume of the cannon by 50% while achieving smaller droplets for airborne dust suppression separated the Spray stream unit from competitors’. It quickly became evident that the SS41 was the most efficient power and water option available on the New Zealand market.

Bulk Handling

Christchurch Fertiliser Reception Facility

Issue: Dust – Fertiliser

Solutions: Spraystream Cannon and Fixed Line

Product Used: SS20HP Platform and Doorway System

Due to the exposed nature of the fertilizer drop-off point, the Spraystream SS20HP Cannon was recommended as an option for capturing wayward dust. A hire unit was shipped from Auckland for an initial trial, where the height and location of the cannon was tested. We discovered that a raised cannon, pointing down towards the back of the truck was the most effective, and a platform set-up was ultimately purchased. The flexibility of having a trailer-mounted system meant the client could place the unit in the correct location depending on wind direction and product received. Recently, a doorway fogging system has also been purchased and installed to capture dust inside the fertiliser bunkers.

Stevedores, Ports of Auckland

Issue: PKE, Gypsum Sand, Metal Slag

Solutions: Spraystream Cannon

Product Used: SS80iHP Cannon and Generator Skid and SS25i Cannon, Water Tank and Generator Trailer

Auckland's largest Stevedore company contacted biOx to assist with dust issues from PKE, Gypsum Sand and Metal Slag handled at the Port. Several cannons were tested over a large area, before the decision to buy. 2x SS80i Cannons blowing some 80m complete with generators were purchased in 2016; followed by a further 2x SS25i Self Supporting Cannons blowing 25-30m complete with water tanks and generators in 2017. Repeat business is the ultimate thumbs up to a business - doing good business.
