BM310E Chemical

Benmarc’s BM310E has been developed and continues to be re formulated for better cost/performance over the past 35 years. BM310E have been specifically designed for the coal mining industry.

This intermediate dust suppressant, formulated to eliminate dust at source, and several transfer point downstream. The BM310E is a surface tension modifying agent that allows effective suppression of all types of material. Most dust types are resistant to water (hydrophobic), water-only suppression remain ineffective at providing the required levels of dust suppression, irrespective of droplet size (misting/fogging).

Benmarc’s BM310E is presently being used within the coal mining industry.

Studies show that with water only, over 3% moisture addition is required to achieve 80% dust reduction. This equates to wasting a very valuable resource whose cost is increasing greatly, electrical consumption to run pumps also increasing at a rapid pace.

The chemical products supplied by Benmarc have been specifically designed for each application according to individual customer, is environmentally friendly, with components local to South Africa.
