New mechanical system from RST enhances the usefulness of Hi-Foam solution.

In the interest of simplifying the dust suppression process for miners, Reynolds Soil Technologies (RST) recently announced a mechanical system geared towards enhancing the effect of its Hi-Foam solution. The Hi-Foam solution engulfs dust in a thick foam that weighs down finer particles to keep them contained during the crushing and conveying process. The solution itself is made up of compressed air, water and RST’s in-house formula, but because water is generally a critical commodity in operations, RST limited its use in the solution. The company’s mechanized system for applying the foam is customized to the needs of the project it is being applied to, said operations and technical director David Handel in a press release. Each system comes with six dosing points to introduce foam directly into the crushing and conveying circuit at specific stages, with the end goal being maximum coverage and dust suppression with the least amount of water required.
