Applied 3324 Dust Suppressant –is an effective additive proven to strengthen the working environment of mine sites, by significantly reducing water wastage, maintenance costs, fuel consumption and improving work conditions.
Settling dust with water alone can be an up-hill battle because water tends to sit on top of the dust particles rather than actually wet them through. Being exposed, the water evaporates rapidly leaving dust particles dry and free to be borne into the air.
The addition of Applied 3324 for the suppression of dust, conditions the water to penetrate dust particles – fast. Dusts are wet thoroughly and stay settled as a result, and a significant improvement to dust levels are seen after just 20 minutes of application. The necessity for re-spraying is reduced resulting in less trouble, less cost and an overall better job.
Ongoing use of Applied 3324 not only creates a safer working environment through reducing dust levels and improving visibility, but the significant reduction in water usage minimises the amount of water on the road, subsequently reducing wear and tear on trucks and tyres, the risk of slippage and helps to maintain road friction.
