Portable Dust Remover for Livestock Buildings"It cleans inside dusty air the same way rain cleans dirty outside air," says Gary Pinkie-man, inventor-manufacturer of a new port-able dust remover for livestock buildings.
"We experimented with dozens of dust-removal ideas before we finally hit on this system. It's amazingly simple, doesn't cost a fortune and it works," Pinkleman told FARM SHOW.
The device consists of a stainless steel rectangular -shaped tank (48 in. long, 18 in. wide and 18 in. deep) which you fill half-full with regular tap water. A 16 in. dia. cast-aluminum fan pulls dust laden air into the tank, forcing dust particles into the water which as a dust-collecting filter. When the water has turned black with dirt and other debris, you simply pull a plug to drain it out, then refill with another 26 gal. of fresh water. In a typical hog barn, for example, you'd drain the tank once every week or two, says Pinkleman, who notes that the air cleaner "pulls in a lot of flies along with dust particles."
Sells for $575.
