The need for improved dust control in mining operations is evident from the Mine, Safety, and Health Administration's (MSHA's) new respirable coal dust regulations, which requires lowering the level of respirable dust from 2.0 mg/m3 to 1.5 mg/m3, and mandates a significant increase in sampling frequency. 

In alignment with MSHA's new regulations, Quaker Chemical offers DUSTGRIP®, a family of dust suppressant products, that now includes a solid material product, DUSTGRIP® JFP-95.  These products:

  • Reduce the generation of airborne particulate matter from mines, roads, stockpiles, rail hauls, construction sites, quarries and other areas where air-born dust is a problem
  • Increase site safety for workers
  • Are more effective than using water alone, reducing costs and saving time

Additionally, Quaker has expanded its portfolio to include MINETECH™ Ground Control Agents which can be used for:

  • Ground consolidation and stabilization, in the event of fractured and unstable ground
  • Sealing against water ingress
  • Injection of rock bolts
  • Concrete and earthen dams
  • Storm water systems, tunnels, manholes, and underground vaults

Quaker's dust suppressants, ground control agents, and entire mining portfolio ranging from fire-resistant longwall hydraulic fluids, greases, gear lubricants, and cleaners (https://www.quakerchem.com/expert-experience/industry-expertise/mining/) will be represented in Booth 513, at Longwall USA 2017, the longwall mining industry's premier technology event, from June 13th – 15th. http://www.quakerchem.com/longwall
