RST Solutions launches dynamic road dust solution ideal for underground mining

May 24, 2016

Leading Australian dust management company, Reynolds Soil Technologies (RST Solutions), has launched a dynamic road dust suppressant ideal for underground mining that will save water, reduce watering cycles and increase efficiency.

The vital system called Hammer, is the ideal solution for unsealed roads that are watered, continually graded and worked hard, RST Solutions operations and technical director David Handel said.

Created with operational optimisation as a priority, the application of Hammer delivers minimal requirements for unsealed road maintenance programs and produces freight cost savings due to minimal dosage rates, Mr Handel said.

“Dust suppression for underground mining is more important than ever, with mine operators needing to ensure they provide employees with an environment that is safe to work in,” he said. “Adding Hammer into the water used to suppress mechanical dust lift-off from surfaces allows for the aggregation of the fine particles, making them larger and heavier to minimise dust lift-off and reduce the height of dust that does lift off.”

RST Solutions is a global market leader in developing fast, effective and environmentally friendly dust, soil and water solutions for the mining, construction, civil and agricultural industries.

Hammer works to compact the road running surface and after continued use helps reduce roll resistance and surface degradation, producing significant savings by reducing the time between repeat watering and road maintenance requirements.

The Hammer product is environmentally safe, dilutes easily into the water cart, and is applied topically for instant results. A small amount of the Hammer solution is added directly into each load of water being applied to the road surface, and the frequency of applications will reduce with product build up.
