Haul road dust control is a key requirement for mine sites transporting minerals to and from the facility. Road dust can cause serious health and environmental safety issues that impact visibility, traffic, and production speed, as well as the health and safety of mine personnel and the surrounding community. Many mines choose to use water sprays alone to suppress road dust, but the cost of treatment for this method is high, as the water only impacts the dust on the surface.
Nalco Water offers humectant, binder, and resin-based products to help control road dust. When applied properly, these programs can be more cost effective than using water trucks alone and reduce the frequency of treatment.
