Specialty Chemical Solutions for Mining
Strata offers a collection of specialty chemicals that have been formulated for specific tasks in the mining process. Many are designed to overcome difficulties or problems, common to the mining environment.
Continuous Moisture Control (CMC) polymers have a unique ability to absorb water and organic fluids and resist biodegradation to retain liquid under pressure. This makes waste fluids easier to handle and acceptable for disposal in landfills. CMC polymers are suitable for any industry needing to solidify liquid waste streams–whether for manufacturing, maintenance, dewatering, or environmental cleanup.
HC Clear absorbs hydrocarbons to assist in their removal from other liquids. It is a super-absorbent polymer with numerous adsorbent sites that react with all hydrocarbons to form a new solid compound in a stable, non-reversible reaction. In most cases the bound solid hydrocarbon can be disposed of as general waste eliminating hazardous waste removal costs.
Side Release Agent (SRA) 3070AG prevents the bonding and freezing of materials to the metal surfaces of transportation vehicles and equipment. When applied to the sides of the haulage equipment and/or railcars prior to loading, it assists in the clean release of materials during unloading.
Strata Deicer and Anti-icer liquid products effectively protect conveyor systems during severe cold weather and allow for uninterrupted operation when temperatures drop as low as -45ºF. The products work by chemically melting ice and controlling refreeze.
