Rail Dust Control Solutions and Midwest's Car-Topping System™

Coal dust is one of the biggest nuisances with which mines, railroads and utilities involved in coal transport must cope, and it is becoming a bigger challenge as increasingly stringent environmental and railroad regulations mandate effective coal car topping. Coal 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 tried-and-true dust-suppression products, a customizable car-topping application system, or a local service network to ensure optimal system efficiency. Used together, Midwest’s Engineered Formula and Car Topping application equipment will help railroads and mines alike meet strict regulations and solve health and environmental issues.

In-Transit Dust Control

The regulatory agency that oversees the BNSF Railroad has labeled coal dust a harmful contaminant of rail ballast. In-transit dust poses a serious threat to the stability of railway track structure and the integrity of rail operations.
