Product Solutions to Suppress Dust and Reduce Downtime

Quaker Chemical Exhibits at the 2015 SME/CMA Annual Conference and Expo

CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. — In today's world, mining faces considerable challenges. The difference between a productive operation and an inefficient one, often boils down to the right combination of people and products. Workers employ advances in chemistry to help reach higher product performance levels.  It's this collaboration between mining companies and their suppliers that helps mines maintain, and in some cases even surpass, productivity goals.  Quaker Chemical Corporation (NYSE:KWR) values this collaboration and supports customers at the local level: on-site, and one-on-one, to formulate solutions for their specific operation, with a portfolio that includes QUINTOLUBRIC® fire-resistant longwall fluids and DUSTGRIP™ dust suppressants.

A 100% synthetic true solution, QUINTOLUBRIC® 818-02 is a fire-resistant hydraulic fluid used in longwall shields, it keeps operations running smoothly by:

    --  Tripling filter life through superior fluid dynamics and improved system


    --  Not forming damaging abrasive scum

    --  Being maintenance free - keeps equipment clean and corrosion-free for

        years of service

Local communities along with regulatory agencies have put increased pressure on mining companies to improve methods of dust suppression.  The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) has required mine operators to increase the total incombustible content of the combined coal dust, rock dust and other dust; and has reduced the concentration limits for coal mine dust.  The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has mandated that facilities that generate dust minimize or mitigate the production of dust in their operation.  To alleviate industry-related issues Quaker offers a family of DUSTGRIP™ products that:

    --  Reduce the generation of airborne particulate matter from mines, roads,

        stockpiles, rail hauls, construction sites, quarries and other areas

        where air-born dust is a problem

    --  Increase site safety and worker health

    --  Are more effective than using water alone, reducing costs and saving

Quaker will be showcasing these product lines at the 2015 SME (Society of Manufacturing Engineers) Annual Conference and Expo and CMA 117(th) National Western Mining Conference, February 15(th)-18(th), in Denver CO, Booth 736.
