LOCAL dust busters Reynolds Soil Technologies (RST Solutions) saddled up with the 2011 Jupiters National Finals Rodeo, managing the event’s dust solutions at the Gold Coast Convention Centre arena last weekend.

RST Solutions came on board as official sponsors of the Australian Professional Rodeo Association event which saw Australia’s top 120 rodeo stars compete for the top award.

The Gold Coast based company were the first dust management experts to be involved in the event, which is the largest rodeo staged in Australia.

Event organiser Mick Ellison said RST Solutions had been recommended to the NFR by Raw Courts, the company behind the clay tennis courts for the Davis Cup.

“We have over 700 tonne of river clay in here, supplied from a quarry in Burleigh,” said Mr Ellison.

“It’s all about customer comfort. In previous years we haven’t had any assistance managing the dust coming off the arena. Now the clay dries out even better. We identified RST Solutions as a company to help us to do that.”

RST Solutions technical and development director David Handel said the project involved the usage of their product Heavy Water to keep the clay dust at bay.

“The NFR have put a whole dust management program together this year and we’re here in total support of this important program,” said Mr Handel.

“We’re dust suppressing all gravel that was imported for the event.”

With more than 20 years experience in total dust control and soil erosion solutions, RST Solutions has been operating across mines in Australia and overseas for several years, designing innovative and holistic dust suppression solutions.

The company also design, construct and maintain solutions for the agricultural, civil and construction industries and roadways.

“All of our products and solutions are tailor-made and project specific to match the individual job requirements,” said Mr Handel.

The company is headquartered in Burleigh Heads, Queensland with a depot in Western Australia and designs, constructs and maintains all systems. With qualified site technicians managing each program, RST Solutions implements continual improvement programs to ensure that all products and systems are supplying clients with optimum results.
