Brain stone duster chosen to clean up North Pole mine

Brain Industries maxi rock duster and stone duster

The Brain Industries’ maxi-stone duster will be heading to the Arctic Circle to help with a clean up of the now closed Svea Mine.

At 78 degrees latitude Svea was the world’s northernmost underground coal mine and the only one in the Nordic region.

The Maxi Duster is a large stone duster with a 15-bag plus capacity hopper and lid to keep contents dry. It continuously discharges stone dust over more than 100 metres.

Rock dusters and stone dusters  discharge stone and rock dust to help reduce the risk of explosion in underground mines. This helps mining companies meet their stone-dusting program requirements.

Brain Industries’ stone dusters and rock dusters use our patented Mudskipper© jet pumps to deliver superior pumping power with minimal maintenance.

Brain also manufactures a Set and Forget Maxi-Duster which has a simple but reliable factory set timer mechanism.
