Rock dusters are devices used for eliminating danger of coal dust explosive condition in allmining facilities mining bituminous coal. Their task is based on mechanical dusting of miningpits by means of plain stone in order to bereave it of explosive properties.
The rock dusters are innovative – dusting of mining pits by means of plain stone takes placein an automated way, apart from the manual power used before. Mechanical dusting becamea very accurate, fast, economic and – what is most important – efficient way of eliminatingcoal dust explosive condition. Moreover, technical solutions, regarding dusters powering byvarious mining devices and with the use of different supply media, have caused that they aremobile appliances able to work in practically every spot of mining facility.
The dusters application allows to:
- effective elimination of coal dust explosive condition by means of more accurate headingsdusting (compared to manual dusting)
- miners safety conditions improvement,headings dusting time shortening
- plain stone consumption reduction.
- The dusters are widely used in coal mining sector.
