Mining applications


Spray Technology is essential for efficient control of airborne dust blown off of rail cars during transit from the mine to the port. The experts at Spraying Systems Co. can help mine sites to create a turnkey solution that will control the dust from their rail cars.

  • Destabilize rail ballasts, damaging rail line infrastructure that can lead to a derailment.
  • Cause a costly loss of up to 2% of an ore or coal load between the mine and the port
