In today’s world, longwall 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. For over 30 years, Quaker Chemical has continued to challenge the status quo for fire-resistant fluids used in some of the largest hydraulic cylinders in the world: longwall mining machinery.
In mining operations, a fire can increase the risk of personal injuries, as well as heighten the likelihood of losses in both capital and production. These losses include not only potential damage to buildings and equipment, but can encompass interruption in production that can idle operations for days or even months.

The need for dust suppressants in the mining industry continues to increase due to health, safety, and regulatory reasons. Whether on a surface or underground mine, dust and other particulates are a constant safety concern for those working in the mining industry. Courtesy of ‘Tradelink Publications Ltd.’
v. Jan/Feb 2018. A four-step process is used to develop a total solution approach for the challenges a West Virginia, US based longwall mining operation was experiencing. The process included, site audit, recommendation, implementation, review and secondary audit. As well as the introduction of DUSTGRIP® JFP-95 to reduce dust emissions.
