Mining Rock Dust Blowers

HafcoVac Rock Dust Blowers are an economical and safe method for the application of non combustible rock dust in coal mines. Economically priced, HafcoVac Rock Dusters operate using compressed air common in many mines and don't require permits, certifications, approvals, logs, etc. HafcoVac Rock Dusters have no moving parts.

Dust application rate is variable, making a HafcoVac Rock Duster a perfect solution for both trickle and bulk dusting operations. The most common size and configuration is our 55 gallon drum model (~550 lbs of Rock Dust capacity). We do offer custom configurations as well, please call to talk to a representative to design one for your needs. HafcoVac Rock Dusters can also assist in compliance with MSHA TIC regulations.
