Water Shortages Across the Globe Increase Demand for RST's Solutions to Reduce Water Consumption
Mining, manufacturing, agriculture and construction companies dealing with water shortages and environmental restrictions are utilising Reynolds Soil Technologies’ ground-breaking technology to reduce water usage and keep operations at optimal level.
(YorkPedia Editorial):- Gold Coast, Feb 26, 2020 (Issuewire.com) – Leading fine particle specialist Reynolds Soil Technologies (RST) is reporting an unprecedented increase in demand from companies across a range of industries for dust control and water management formulas that require substantially less water to achieve the same, if not better results.
RST has recorded significant increases in the supply of its water-saving solutions, including the Hi-Foam formula, every year for the past five years.
The Hi-Foam product has been selling in record amounts as companies, particularly mining companies, find ways to improve efficiencies and reduce water consumption to lessen the environmental impacts of their operations.
Hi-Foam has been found to require substantially less water and suppress dust more efficiently than traditional water spray dust suppression systems used in crushers, transfer points, stackers, carts and conveyor systems.
The environmentally friendly formula is an abundant robust foam that creates a total dust blanket effect for dust suppression requiring minimal moisture to greatly extend water and reduce water requirements.
Its unique formula was developed by RST in response to increasing demand from mining companies for ways to cope with water restrictions while keeping operations running as normal.
The Australian-based, international environmental specialist company develops and manufactures products and solutions for dust suppression, stabilisation and erosion control, and water sediment solutions to assist the civil construction, mining and agricultural industries.
RST operations and technical director David Handel said increased pressure was being placed on these industries to reduce their environmental impact.
“All companies are required to be a lot more mindful about water consumption to ensure their operations have less of an effect on the environment,” he said.
“We are seeing significant demand for products that require less water usage, especially from mining companies in Australia that were dealing with drought and water shortages.
“RST has been supplying record amounts of our Hi-Foam product to projects around Australia where water has been scarce.
“By using RST’s foaming agents, companies are saving up to half the amount of water compared to conventional wet spray dust suppression systems.
“Using foam stops dust lift-off in the first instance and is both a short and long-term dust prevention method because it binds dust particles for longer periods.
“The advantages of using our foaming agents is they save a significant amount of water and are undeniably more effective in controlling dust than wet spray dust suppression systems.
“We are now supplying Hi-Foam as a dust suppression solution to quarry companies throughout Australia who are working with minimum water access to contain hazardous silica dust.”
The RST-developed Hi-Foam System is considered the dust solution of choice for operations where moisture limitations on materials are critical and the treatment of large areas is required.
The customizable mechanical foaming dispensing system produces the Hi-Foam solution through the controlled mixing of compressed air, water, and the Hi-Foam formula.
When the Hi-Foam solution is applied through the foaming generating system, it creates a robust, flowable foam that engulfs all the material and fine particles in a ‘total dust blanket’ effect that prevents dust from becoming airborne.
Hi-Foam is just one of over 50 innovative products developed by RST to assist companies in the mining and quarrying, civil construction and agriculture industries companies throughout Australia and across the globe.
RST has more than three decades of experience in developing versatile and effective environmental management solutions across a range of industry sectors including mining, quarrying, waste management, civil construction and manufacturing in both Australia and overseas.
RST is an Australian business operating internationally, with projects currently in the United States of America, China, New Zealand, New Caledonia, Mongolia, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, India, Colombia, Chile, Croatia, Argentina, Peru, Brazil, Mexico, Lithuania, and the United Arab Emirates.
