Limiting Dust in Mining

Limiting Dust in Mining

Telesto solutions for dust reduction are highly effective in mining, where coal dust is often present, posing a danger to miners. The main advantages of using Telesto systems in mining include improving occupational health and safety conditions, reducing the risk of illness for underground workers, extending the equipment’s trouble-free operating time, and reducing the explosion hazard.

Types of Telesto systems for dust reduction in mining:

  • System for dust reduction in mine galleries
  • Systems for dust reduction at coal dump stations
  • Systems for air dust reduction in underground galleries

Telesto systems operate in various mines, including:

  • Kompania Węglowa S.A. – for reducing airborne dust in mines
  • Katowicki Holding Węglowy S.A. – for reducing coal dust above the skip
  • Jastrzębska Spółka Węglowa S.A. – for reducing airborne dust in mines

Awards and recognitions:

The Telesto system has been recognized by workplace safety authorities in mining and was awarded in the nationwide Competition for Improving Working Conditions organized by the Ministry of Labor and Social Policy, where one of the clients received a third-degree prize. Additionally, in 2009, the system received the “Mining Success of the Year” award in the “Innovation” category in a competition organized by the Mining Chamber of Industry and Commerce and the School of Underground Operation.

Media coverage on Telesto systems in mining:

Telesto systems are used in both Polish and international mines. In Poland, they are primarily utilized in deep coal mines, while in other countries such as South Africa, these systems are used in gold mines, where they also help lower the air temperature in the galleries.
