Magnesium Chloride for Dust Control
Use our dry magnesium chloride for dust control and fugitive dust suppression. Meltsnow.com stocks all forms of dry magnesium chloride used in dust abatement. Available package types of our magnesium chloride flakes, mag chloride pellets and magnesium chloride pastille pellets are; 50 pound plastic bags, and 2,205 pound FIBCs – also called bulk bags or super sacks. Our magnesium chloride crystals are available only in 2205 lb. super sacks. We deliver by box trailer, flatbed, rail, or ocean vessel. Typically magnesium chloride flakes and/or crystals are used for dust control because they are the least expensive form of dry magnesium chloride when calculated on an active horsepower basis; MgCl2. However, you can use any form of our calcium chloride to get the job done. You can download our brochure for how to use our magnesium chloride products for dust control for more information.
Advantages of Using Magnesium Chloride Flakes and Mag Chloride Crystal for Dust Suppression
Magnesium chloride has become a a preferred choice for road dust control products. Why? The reasons are many:
- Magnesium chloride is hygroscopic, meaning it attracts moisture from the air and its surroundings. This keeps unpaved surfaces damp and the dust down.
- Mag chloride also resists evaporation, so a single application provides on-going benefit for extended period.
- Magnesium chloride’s thirst for moisture helps bind aggregate particles together by keeping the fines on the road and not in the air. Unpaved surfaces become and remain compacted and over time, the chemical penetrates the surface adding a stabilizing effect to reduce frost damage and overall wear.
- Maintenance costs for a magnesium chloride-treated road are much less than untreated roads, or roads treated with alternative products.
Dry MgCl2 in flake and pellet form will work well in most existing equipment that is set up to spread sand and salt products in the winter. New England Townships have used calcium chloride to manage unpaved surfaces, including dirt roads and parking areas, for years. This cost effective process reduces the amount of labor required to maintain unpaved surfaces that typically require grading and rolling several times of year when calcium is not applied. Our most popular calcium chloride dry products for dust management are our calcium chloride flakes in super sacks and 50 pound bags, and our calcium chloride pellets.
Whether building new roads or rehabilitating existing roads, simply spreading magnesium chloride on the surface, or using it in full-depth reclamation technique, magnesium chloride is the dust control material of choice. At an average of $0.10 per square foot for total dust control in your indoor arena, MAG is the least expensive and most effective horse arena dust control option. Also, because of its extremely low toxicity and gentle natural composition, our MAG Flakes are recommended for equine arena dust control by many prestigious facilities like Kentucky Horse Park and the Rolex Cup.
