GRT

Longwall


GRT Longwall is used to super-activate water sprayed to control coal dust in longwall and continuous miner operations. Coal is by nature hydrophobic (water hating) and at the microscopic level repels water – so despite the volumes used, the finest particles simply bounce off of sprayed water. These fine particles, which may not even be visible, are the most hazardous to health, leading to diseases such as black lung and other respiratory ailments.


Dust Suppression at the Coal Face

Whilst developed specifically for the coal face, GRT Longwall can also be applied to manage dust from conveyors, large mineral stockpiles or any fine or pulverised minerals in transit.

GRT will work with you to devise a site-specific dust mitigation strategy to meet the challenges facing your project. We can also provide ongoing dust monitoring services to ensure the most cost effective protection over the life of your project.
