Novamen has a variety of release agents for many common uses in the mining industry including for rail cars and conveyor belt release agents. The solution to preventing coal and other particulate products from sticking to rail car interiors, truck boxes, conveyor belts, hoppers and feeders is a side release agent. One of Novamen’s solutions is NovaMax SRA, comprised of naturally occurring triglycerides and environmentally friendly emulsifiers.
The treatment leaves a clean, oily barrier that provides lubricity between the metal surface and particulate products, allowing easier release when unloading.
NovaMax SRA has many outstanding performance characteristics:
- Eliminate costly chipping, picking, or shoveling to remove left material out of rail cars and truck boxes
- Easier to clean rail cars, truck boxes and other equipment
- Reduce amount of dust
- Keep rail cars and truck boxes clean
- Safe to use
- Easy to apply
- Provides “Dump-&-Go” turnaround
NovaMax SRA is applied at the rate of about 5 gallons per 100 ton rail car. Application equipment especially designed to automatically treat the inside of each car is available for permanent installations. A simple spray bar suspended across the top of the cars, or a hand-held spray gun is suitable for trials and initial evaluation.
