Rail Car Topping Dust Control Solutions

Coal, ore, and gypsum dust are nuisances with which mines, railroads and utilities involved in material transport must cope, and it is becoming a bigger challenge as increasingly stringent environmental and railroad regulations mandate effective car topping. In-transit dust not only poses health risks, but also damages equipment and creates an environmental hazard for which railroad and mine management teams will be held responsible.

Midwest offers a turnkey three-pronged coal car topping solution, or, alternatively any part of it you need: our BNSF approved dust suppression products, a customizable car-topping application system, and a local service network to ensure optimal system efficiency. Midwest’s car topping products and application equipment will help railroads, utilities and mines alike meet strict regulations and solve health and environmental issues.

Proven Lowest Rate per Ton

Midwest not only meets the demands of the new BNSF Tariff rate for suppressing dust on in-transit coal rail cars, we can assure you the lowest cost per ton combined with the lowest water usage. We will work with you to meet your requirements and determine application rate by testing in our soils laboratory and our state of the art wind tunnel to ensure your required dust control efficiency rate.
