Sprinkling the ore (Brazil)
Author: pedrop

Hi, here it is another video of action on Vale narrow gauge.  Here we see a train being wet by the sprinkle system in Resplendor, MG. I edited the video to fit TO size standards. The entire video can have more than seven minutes and can be watched in my channel in YouTube. Use this link if you want to watch the full train.

Thanks for sharing. I'd like to use two of your images as a "guessing game" for my students. They will have seen signal bridges, high-wide load detectors, and catenary bridges. But I forgot about spraying loads, here in North America usually coal.

".....Blue Coal" is the term for a once-popular and trademarked brand of anthracite, mined by the Glen Alden Coal Company in Pennsylvania, and sprayed with a blue dye at the mine before shipping to its northeastern U.S. markets to distinguish it from its competitors....."

Blue Coal reminds me of when I was a child and we'd sprinkle fireplace crystals in the fire and we'd then get blue and other color flames.   Wonder if they still make such stuff,  although probably not that many fireplaces these days.   Especially in SoCal.

That is a great video of an interesting way to reduce coal dust I assume.

Thanks for sharing. I noticed the water stopped when the DPU diesel passed under but the started up again with the rest of the train. How was that accomplished?

There is an operation room in the sprinkle facility from where an operator controls the operations by video cameras.

Thanks for the info Pedro. That operator must be pretty quick to turn it off and on that quick.
