Safety in underground mines is an essential point, in particular for coal mines which can be very deep and where the risk of explosion (firedamp) is ever present. CONDAT offers a large range of HFDU, HFA, HFC fire-resistant fluids to combat this issue in underground mines.
The operation of hydraulic systems for powered roof supports or coal-cutters is therefore most often carried out using low-flammability fluids. Such fluids are mandatory in some countries, to protect the personnel working in the mines.
Our CONDAT D range has Factory mutual FM and MSHA accreditation. The CONDAT D fluids also have the advantage of being biodegradable.
According to customer needs, the mining range is based around HFA/HFC/HFDU fire-resistant hydraulic fluids and high and very high temperature greases.
