Dust Control – Avenger
A leader in dust control systems for ‘pit to port’ operations, RST Solutions has been treating haul road and mine site dust emissions on a global scale for close to three decades, continually developing the latest technology and products for use by major mining companies.
RST Solutions uses advanced micro polymer technology in its latest range of dust suppression solutions, which has been designed as a premium solution for all types of mining where bulk dust is generated as a result of heavy vehicle operation and haulage.
RST Solutions’ new Avenger range features ultra-concentrated, eco-friendly and fast-acting dust control solutions capable of treating challenging material types found in all forms of mining operations. The Avenger range comprises of three individually-tailored liquid polymer products, purpose-built for dust management applications in the open-cut coal (Avenger Coal), underground (Avenger Underground) and hard rock (Avenger Hard Rock) mining environments.
Avenger high performance haul road dust suppressant has been developed by RST Solutions as an additive for water carts to greatly improve dust control. Water alone is not the solution to control haul road dust, as large volumes are continually required, which not only is costly but water can also cause slipperiness and road surface damage.
By adding Avenger to current water cart program, mine site watering requirements are halved, dust is minimised, maintenance requirements are slashed and site safety is improved.
Avenger offers the additional value over time by improving the road structure which inturn reduces roll resistance, road maintenance and road recovery after rain.
