Zalta™ Dust Suppressants

Mining and mineral processing operations generate dust when ore is loaded, dumped, crushed, screened or transferred by conveyor belt. Road traffic and wind blowing on stockpiles, tailings dams, railcars or hauling trucks can also create dust. 

Zalta dust suppressants are proven to deliver superior dust-control performance, which increases productivity and profitability for mining operators. Used in dust abatement systems, Zalta dust suppressants also solve health, safety and environmental challenges. Benefits include:

  • Improved environmental compliance
  • Enhanced workplace safety
  • Reduced risk of fire and explosion
  • Lower equipment maintenance and cleaning costs
  • Reduced water consumption
  • Improved community relations

Customized Solutions

We offer a variety of Zalta dust-control solutions including:

  • Surface-wetting agents that lower fine-particle dispersion
  • Tackifiers that bind particles together
  • Humectants that agglomerate particles
  • Encrusting agents that create a solid layer over porous surfaces

Our researchers can provide pre-trial laboratory product screenings of products and can leverage test data to create customized solutions for encrusting, permeability and wind/water erosion.
