Water Spray Systems (Dust Suppression)

Air-borne dust on longwalls has always been an issue of concern in the mining industry, both in terms of production as well as for the safety and well-being of miners. Longwall personnel can be exposed to coal dust from multiple sources and when inhaled, this can result in long-term health risks. Inhaled coal dust is toxic and may also be carcinogenic in the event of repeated exposure.

Our high-flow pump systems are used in Longwall applications to provide a continuous flow of clean spray water to the cutting face, providing a critical role in reducing air-borne coal dust and minimising the risk to Longwall personnel.
