CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., Sept. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The mining industry faces considerable challenges in today's world.

Quaker Chemical Corporation (NYSE: KWR, "Quaker"), a global provider of process fluids and chemical specialties including QUINTOLUBRIC® fire-resistant hydraulic fluids, and DUSTGRIP® dust suppressants will have experts on-site to present informative, technical solutions at MINExpo 2016.

MINExpo is the premier opportunity to reach Mining's core market, and to view the latest state-of-the-art equipment and services to increase productivity and reduce cost.  The show runs from September 26th to 28th in Las Vegas, Nevada.  Quaker will exhibit in the South Hall – Booth 25313, and will feature a dust suppression simulator and in-booth presentation:

  • Guidelines for Selecting the Right Dust Suppressant on Tuesday, September 27th at 11 AMJon Brown, Business Development Manager – Mining, will discuss various approaches to dust control, products that can be used where dust originates or accumulates, and important factors to consider when selecting a dust suppressant .

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.  These new regulations went into full compliance on August 1, 2016.

In alignment with MSHA's new regulations, Quaker Chemical offers DUSTGRIP®, a family of dust suppressant products, that now includes a solid 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

Stop by Quaker's Booth 25313 to learn about our dust suppression capabilities and to race a full size NASCAR simulator.
