Pump injection chemicals up to 3,000m from the surface using a variety of pumping methods. Pumping chemicals from the surface eliminates up to 95% of activity. This means less exposure to chemicals and reduced manual handling. Limit the transportation of materials underground and reduce manning levels.
Minova pioneered the first resin, application systems and design formulations into Australian mines based on German technology.
Our injection chemicals range include polyurethane (PUR), silicate and phenolic based systems which are also routinely used to stabilise longwall faces in underground coal mines and prevent falls of ground during production. Polyurethane products can be injected under high pressures and have a long history in preventing water ingress of varying magnitudes into the mine.
