Why Forced Air Cannons are Beneficial

One of the primary benefits of the Neptune Forced Air Cannon is its versatility. It can be configured for irrigation, dust suppression, or even water filtration with a few simple adjustments. The cannon itself propels high-pressured air from the mouth, and the irrigation nozzles along the rim add moisture to the stream of air. The following list provides greater detail on some of the ways the Neptune Forced Air Cannon might be beneficial for your needs.


Irrigation systems of any kind can be expensive and, more often than not, they use a lot of water. The best systems require permanent underground fixtures that are not easily moved or adjusted. The Neptune air cannon offers an alternative solution.

Depending on your needs and the restrictions on your space, the air cannon can be set up anywhere, indoors or outdoors. The inherent mobility of this device allow you to move it (and the water) anywhere it is needed, quickly and easily. The air cannon can even change spray nozzles for different size water droplets. Maybe you want to emulate rainfall on your fields, or maybe you want to humidify a room. The Neptune Forced Air Cannon does it all!

Dust Suppression

Dust suppression is all about taking preventative measures against the wind. Whether your fields are dry and wind blown, or you need to prevent overwhelming dust clouds around a demolition site, the Neptune air cannon is equipped to help.

Begin by identifying the problem areas. Then, adjust the water nozzles on the cannon to an appropriate level. The Neptune air cannon specializes in dampening the soil without creating mud. This dampness will bind any loose dust particles and prevent the wind from picking them up and becoming airborne.

Water Filtration

The Neptune Forced Air Cannon may also be used as a kind of water filtration system or “evaporator” for leachate. When water becomes contaminated with chemicals and solid material, it cannot simply be re-released into the environment. The air cannon turns this water into a fine mist that is capable of instantaneous evaporation. As the water evaporates, the contaminants fall in front of the cannon. In order for this process to work, this area should be designated for waste removal.

Versatility At Its Finest

The Neptune Forced Air Cannon has a variety of use cases, all of which offer the user adjustability, interchangeability, and mobility. What will you use your air cannon for? Contact us today for a quote!
