Interested in Clean Water?

Clean water……….something most of us take for granted. But clean water doesn’t occur as naturally as in the past.
At Freedom Industries we recognize the need to protect and maintain healthy waterbodies. Healthy watersheds provide our communities with drinking water, recreational opportunities, environmental benefits and services, including clean water for healthy aquatic ecosystems, habitat for fish and wildlife, and better resilience against storms and floods, climate change and future land-use changes.
Our water treatment products are available for both influent and effluent water. We supply environmentally safe and effective biocides, methanol, anti-foams, coagulants, sodium bromide, emulsion breakers, aluminum chloride, ammonium bisulfite and zinc orthsulfate.

Melt That Ice with Blue Flame

It’s early in the winter season but it’s COLD ! Many of the businesses involved in the use of conveyor belts are looking for ways to stop the backslides that happen once the belt hardens in this cold weather. It starts at 20 degrees F and gets worse as the temperature drops!
So what’s out there to be effective on conveyor belts as well as crossing arms at railroad tracks, signals and lenses, car couplers, doors and chutes, movable bridges, tunnel walls and overhead crane switches to name a few?  Blue Flame is a well known chemical deicer that is an effective ice melter. Test results have shown that Blue Flame products melt more ice faster and prevent freezing longer than traditional deicer chemistry.  The list of benefits includes not just prevention of buildup of ice and fines on the idlers and pulleys, but Blue Flame provides a cover friction for efficient handling. The applications are non-corrosive and cost effective. Read what one satisfied customer has to say about Blue Flame.
The Blue Flame belt de icier has preformed just as promised. When we apply Blue Flame to a bend pulley that has 3”of frozen coal attached  it will melt thru the frozen coal within 15 minutes and the pulley (60”x 20”) will run clean for at least 2 ½ hours, a follow up application with a garden sprayer will keep the pulley free of ice again for several hours.
We ran over 600,000 TONS during the winter off into the stockpile and loaded out that amount with the help of Blue Flame deicing on our conveyor. The Blue Flame belt deicing works as stated (extremely well) and I just ordered product for this winter and into 2011.

Freeze Conditioning Agents

Transportation and handling of coal and other similar minerals in cold weather can make these moist materials freeze. Talk about creating major handling problems during the winter months!  In the summer months a bottom-dumped rail car carrying coal takes a few minutes to unload. But this same load of materials when frozen can really affect the bottom line if it takes hours to unload.

Freeze conditioning agents have been proven to effectively ease unloading and handling of minerals like coal during the winter months. It acts to lower the freeze point, weakening the crystal structure of the ice formed, making handling time less.

Belts and equipment exposed to low ambient temperatures can be modified by coating with freeze conditioning agents. These agents are typically sprayed on and are non-corrosive. For the variety of freeze conditioning agents available and to help determine your individual needs, contact Freedom Industries. We’re here to help.
