  7. Where are the nozzles installed on the shredder?
    Usually liner bolts are removed from each side to accommodate the placement of the nozzles.

  8. How long will the system operate before major repairs?
    The Dust-Buster systems should operate for many years without major repair providing the system’s wet lines are not allowed to freeze or are protected from freezing.

  9. What routine maintenance is required for the Dust-Buster systems?
    Routine service would be visual inspection of components, cleaning or replacing foaming pads in the foam accumulators, checking chemical pump lubrication, and after some period replacing seals if any leaks form.
