- AMC DET XTRA™ is used to combat sticking tendency when drilling sensitive clays and shale that impedes penetration rates and causes bit balling and collaring. AMC DET XTRA™ reduces the surface tension of water based drilling fluids promoting better cuttings settlement on surface. AMC DET XTRA™ is easily mixed into water at low to moderate concentrations and is compatible with most other additives.
- AMC BIT GUARD™ is a vegetable oil based lubricant and ROP enhancer with additives to help prevent clay and shale cuttings from balling at the bit or blocking nozzles. Designed for use in water based fluid systems, AMC BIT GUARD™ is proven effective in fresh and saline conditions.

Dust caused by blasting, handling, processing or transporting soil and rock is an inevitable problem for all forms of mining. Not only is dust one of the most visible, invasive and potentially irritating impacts of mining operations, it has the potential to severely affect flora and fauna near the mine site and impact the health of mine workers and the community. As a result, dust control measures are fundamental to any mining operation.
The most effective and common method of dust suppression and dust control is through the application of water using either fixed or mobile sprinklers systems.
Total Eden has been servicing the mining industry for over 20 years and has the skill and experience to design, supply and install a dust control system which best suits your specific requirements. Our relationships with key suppliers enable us to provide the most advanced dust suppression technology, which effectively and efficiently deals with dust, whilst at the same time, optimising water and energy usage.
We can supply dust suppression/dust control products that are reliable and have long wear life including:
- Nelson Big Gun Sprinklers – Large Volume Sprinklers
- Pivot Sprinklers
- Spinners & Sprays
- Control Valves
- Feed Tube Assemblies
- Pressure Regulators
