Quaker Chemical Corporation issued the following announcement on Feb. 20.
Mining companies face complex operational challenges where compliant solutions can optimize processes. Quaker Chemical Corporation (NYSE: KWR, "Quaker") will be demonstrating how its DUSTGRIP® Dust Suppressants, MINETECH™ Ground Control Agents, and QUINTOLUBRIC® Longwall and Fire-resistant Hydraulic Fluids support a safe work environment and offer compliance solutions at the 2018 Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration (SME), February 25th – 28th 2018 in Minneapolis MN, USA.
Quaker's Jon Brown, Market Manager Mining, will be discussing why dust suppression is important, the main approaches to dust control, and additional information on the DUSTGRIP® product line during the technical talk "Guidelines for Selecting the Right Dust Suppression" on Wednesday, February 25th at 10:25 am.
The need for dust suppressants in the mining industry continues to increase due to health, safety, and regulatory reasons. Whether on a surface or underground mine, dust and other particulates are a constant safety concern for those working in the mining industry. These hazards can cause a wide range of issues including respiratory illnesses, and operational risks.
Quaker offers a solution to these concerns with DUSTGRIP®, a family of dust suppressants for various applications, including crushers and conveyor systems, rail cars, stockpiles, unpaved haul roads, pits and quarries, mine tailings, screening operations, construction sites, unpaved parking lots and roadways, longwalls, and embankments.
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. This line includes MINETECH™ Q-FOAM, a two-chemical component, mine ventilation air sealant. Once dispensed, the product quickly creates an air tight seal around mine ventilation devices to improve overall ventilation efficiency.
