Quaker presents mining solutions to suppress dust, reduce downtime

CONSHOHOCKEN, US: Quaker Chemical Corporation (KWR) said that it will be presenting how its DUSTGRIP dust suppressants and MINETECH ground control agents support a safe work environment and offer compliance solutions.

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 offers DUSTGRIP, a family of dust suppressant products, that now includes a solid product, DUSTGRIP JFP-95. This dust suppressant comes as a solid material in a cylindrical shape, and can easily be added to any system through a variety of pre-fabricated manifolds. This eliminates the need for a liquid addition pump and allows the strength of the suppressant solution to be adjusted quickly, or completely shut off.  The solid material allows for a more compacted container size than a liquid dust suppressant, which means less storage area.

Quaker has also added a line of MINETECH ground control agents that can be dispensed through low or high pressure dispensing systems for rapid cavity filling and strata consolidation. These products provide good penetration into small fissures, have excellent adhesion, chemical resistance and durability, and are fast acting. Which results in minimal disruption to the workplace for installation.
