Dri Boss DBE650

The DriBoss DBE-650 Evaporator is a land-based unit that uses water fracturing technology to create optimum water droplet distribution for evaporation. The boom arm enables easy repositioning of the unit to be vertical upright or angled over the pond.


  • FLEXIBLE PLUME HEIGHT to adjust droplet drift for greater efficiency in swirling or constantly changing winds and higher evaporation rates due to longer hang time.
  • HEAVY INDUSTRIAL CONSTRUCTION, including stainless control panel, motor enclosure, manifold and fan blade for increased durability and service life.
  • VIBRATION SENSOR included to shut down motor before catastrophic failure due to residue or ice build-up.


  • FLEXIBLE OPERATION: The DBE-650 can be operated vertically upright or angled over the pond by manually lowering or raising the boom. The machine can function in virtually any wind conditions, as it is not sensitive to blowback.
  • HIGH PERFORMANCE: High-speed fan blade rotation creates an optimum water droplet distribution for evaporation. Annual evaporation rates up to 70% have been achieved, with average rates typically between 25 and 60%. Evaporation rates depend upon many factors, including ambient temperature, relative humidity, water makeup and wind.
  • EASY MAINTENANCE: Designed for easy cleaning and maintenance, this unit requires no weekly bearing lubrication, as it is lubricated for the life of the motor.
  • MINIMAL CLOGGING: The DBE-650 Evaporator can pass particles up to 3/16 inch (4.7 mm) in diameter, which reduces the need for pre-filtering, filter cleaning and the hassles of clogged nozzles.
  • EXTREME DUTY: This design has evolved from 10 years of experience in industrial and extreme outdoor applications. Critical components are manufactured from stainless steel for extended life in harsh environments.

why evaporate?
Evaporation is considered as an alternative process to a number of wastewater treatment applications, such as reverse osmosis, chemical dosing or desalination. The evaporation process may be carried out naturally in solar evaporation ponds (which is slow and requires a great deal of area) or by mechanical evaporation. Natural solar evaporation is often limited by land availability and the cost of constructing additional storage ponds, not to mention the added cost of clean-up and re-vegetation. Evaporation machines can significantly enhance the evaporation process, with up to 14 times more efficiency than pond evaporation. DriBoss® evaporation machines are relatively compact, reliable and efficient and can be transported to different sites as necessary. They can be a low-cost addition to improve evaporation rates and volumes on existing containment ponds or to minimize new pond surface area.
