Using Dust Control to Prevent Brownouts and Kopp-Etchells Effect

Military organizations around the world rely on Soilworks to prevent helipad and airfield foreign object debris from obstructing visibility and creating dangerous work environments. Brownouts and the Kopp-Etchells Effect are caused by uncontrolled, dusty sand and can be prevented with effective dust suppression solutions.

Durasoil is used on military helipads in dry, desert climates to maintain clean air quality and prevent hazardous brownouts generated by helicopter rotor wash.

Military operations around the world turn to Soilworks to solve their soil stabilization and dust control challenges. Our products continue to be rigorously tested and field-verified annually by military organizations including the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Reduce Sand Ejecta with Durasoil

Soilworks’ patented synthetic dust suppression fluid, Durasoil, is used on military helipads in dry, desert climates to maintain clean air quality and prevent hazardous brownouts generated by helicopter rotor wash. Durasoil’s unique, gas-to-liquid technology provides a long-lasting and self-healing application that never evaporates, making it the dust control product of choice for areas of extreme heat.

A 2012 U.S. Army Corps of Engineers report revealed that Durasoil-treated sand is safer than multiple alternatives, delivering the lowest level of ejected sand when compared to untreated soil or soil treated with water.

Durasoil can be easily applied by military crews with any equipment capable of spraying water including basic fuel transfer and fire suppression equipment, providing a simple and reliable solution. The solution can also be used to control dust at base camps and to treat against insects. Not only is Durasoil efficient in preventing hazards, but also in improving soldiers’ safety, quality of life and overall morale.
