Renewable energy is a strong resource that requires strong infrastructure. Investing in power source maintenance can pay serious dividends down the road. Keeping the elements out is a huge factor to the success of a grid, and that’s why HMI is enthusiastic to offer solutions to help maintain renewable energy infrastructure.
Palouse, WA is home to a large wind farm servicing the entire region. In 2011, the owners noticed dust starting to come off the road bed by the turbines. This would prove to be costly, as dust can damage and dramatically reduce the turbine’s productivity. After applying HMI’s NaturesOwn X9000 BFM/FRM and KnockOut Eco Dust dust control, they saw a 25% efficiency boost from their machines, making the investment in the maintenance products worth it many times over.
NaturesOwn X9000 BFM (Bonded Fiber Matrix) is produced, patented, designed, and tested to tackle the toughest erosion control projects in the industry. Strong natural fibers homogenized with an unmatched tackifier to ensure erosion control success without restricting natural growth. This product was designed to withstand heavy rains over a long period of time on steep slopes. X9000 BFM is HMI's premium product.
NaturesOwn® Knockout dust control agent is derived from fatty acids which are 100% biodegradable. Depending upon the application, light to heavy traffic can immediately continue to travel over the treated area. A standard application will last between 2-6 months, dependant upon environmental conditions and traffic volume.
NaturesOwn Triple Tac is a natural, biodegradable tackifier that disperses rapidly in cold water and cures immediately after application. Triple Tac is a premium tackifier for use in extreme climate and surface conditions. Triple Tac reduces evaporation and nutrient leaching as well as protects against soil erosion by creating a strong matrix. It mixes easily with water and prevents plugging.
