Foams for dust controls.
Eng Min J 1986 Oct; 187(10):50-52, 54
This paper reexamines the use of foams as a method to control dust in coal mines. In earlier years, high surfactant costs, combined with maintenance and effectiveness problems, had undermined the acceptance of foam as a dust suppression agent. In the last 5 years, however, the effectiveness of foams has improved owing to new treatment methods.
