Reynolds Soil Technologies (RST) stated it is set to revolutionise dust suppression treatments internationally with its new Generation 2 Heavy Water Dynamic micro-polymer additive, which functions as a dust suppressant, water extender, compaction aid and veneering agent.
Incorporating RST’s latest advanced micro polymer technology, the Generation 2 Heavy Water Dynamic requires less additives and has three times more coverage than its predecessor Heavy Water Dynamic which has now been super boosted.
The technology allows the application rate of the Generation 2 Heavy Water Dynamic solution to be adjusted as necessary compacting unsealed road surfaces, seal open source emissions and stockpiles, minimise sediment loss from open areas and roads while further reducing water evaporation, as well as successfully reducing water usage by approximately half per square metre.
To effectively enhance the application of the Generation 2 Heavy Water Dynamic, RST has specifically developed Dose Buddy – a highly effective dosing pump which mounts on to the back of water carts. The Dose Buddy greatly simplifies the application process as it starts manually and turns off automatically, ensuring doses are accurately applied every time.
David Handel, operation and technical director at RST, said “Following extensive research ad listening to our clients’ needs, it was important for us to develop the application machinery to complement our advanced Generation 2 Heavy Water Dynamic product for maximum results. The Generation 2 Heavy Water Dynamic solution and Dose Buddy are leading edge products that will revolutionise dust suppression treatments internationally because they simplify the whole process.”
He added: “Generation 2 Heavy Water Dynamic requires less additive and ha greater coverage which means it is highly cost effective and greatly reduces the amount of time spent on each treatment. Not only does it save our clients time and money, but it also promotes an environmentally sustainable future with reduced additive requirements and the solution itself being environmentally safe. By utilising the Dose Buddy the application process is simplified further because it minimises the chance of dosage errors and waste, it’s safer because it sits of the back of the water cart and its accessibility reduce preparation time, adding to the overall cost effectiveness of the process.”
