Efficient, Effective Solution for Dust Prevention and Suppression

Rail Car Veneering


Dust blowing off loaded rail cars in transit from the mine to the port causes three major problems that are extremely dangerous, costly and require expert attention.

Airborne Ore or Coal dust:

  • Is a danger to health and is a major cause of lung disease.
  • Destabilises rail ballasts, damaging rail line infrastructure that can lead to a derailment.
  • Can cause a costly loss of up to 2% of an ore or coal load between the mine and the port.
