Does anyone know what type of oil they use to spray coal with? I would like to spray mine to keep the dust down.

I just started using Light Mineral Oil from Tractor Supply. It is a veterinary product used as a laxative for farm animals. I am spraying it with a "Sure Shot" sprayer with a P707 nozzle. I just used it this weekend, and it looks good. I pour 50 lb bags in my hopper and then spray it lightly, and add more coal and do the same. I will update in a week or so and tell everyone how well I think it is working. I think I am on to something :roll:

$10 a gallon is a deal.

Tractor supply in our area charges $15.00 a gallon for animal mineral oil.

Mineral Oil Heavy Viscosity
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mineral oil or liquid petrolatum is a by-product in the distillation of petroleum to produce gasoline. It is a transparent, colorless oil composed mainly of alkanes (typically 15 to 40 carbons) [1] and cyclic paraffins, related to white petrolatum. Mineral oil is a substance of relatively low value, and it is produced in very large quantities. Mineral oil is available in light and heavy grades, and can often be found in drug stores.

CQ Concepts uses Penreco brand Drakeol 34 mineral oil for this application.

Applications

Refined mineral oil is used as transformer oil.
Alkali metals are sometimes submerged in mineral oil for storage or transportation. The oil prevents the metals from reacting with atmospheric moisture.
Mineral oil with added fragrance is marketed as baby oil in the US, UK and Canada.
Used as an ingredient in baby lotions, cold creams, ointments and other pharmaceuticals and low-grade cosmetics.
Used on eyelashes to prevent brittleness and/or breaking.
Used in small quantities (2–3 drops daily) to clean ears. Over a couple of weeks, the mineral oil softens dried or hardened earwax so that a gentle flush of water can remove it. In the case of a damaged or perforated eardrum, however, mineral oil should not be used, as oil in the middle ear can lead to ear infections.
Lubrication
Fuel, for items such as oil lamps.
Electric mineral-oil–filled space heaters
Coolant
Fog machines
Automotive and aviation brake fluid that does not absorb water molecules by osmosis
A coating of mineral oil protects metal surfaces from moisture and oxidation.
Light mineral oil is used in textile industries and used as a jute batching oil.
Mineral oil is used to darken soapstone countertops for aesthetic purposes.
It works (albeit poorly) as a release agent for molds, especially in fiberglass casting.
Used as a cleaner and solvent for inks in fine art printmaking as well as in oil painting, though turpentine is more often used.
In the poultry industry, plain mineral oil can be swabbed onto the feet of chickens infected with scaly mites on the shank, toes, and webs. Mineral oil suffocates these tiny parasites.
Some people have found success using mineral oil to remove henna used as a hair dye.
Using mineral oil or baby oil to reduce a grease, oil, or asphalt stain on clothing may be counter-intuitive, but is often effective, as the mineral oil dilutes and liquefies some of the stain thereby making it easier to clean out of the clothing.
Some people have used mineral oil as a cooling system for a computer, by completely submerging the computer's motherboard and system components into an aquarium tank filled with mineral oil. The oil does not have any long term effect on the components.

Once you have poured the bag, isn't it too late to spray? While I am pouring a bag into my carrying hods (pieces of stovepipe), a cloud of black dust rises up like smoke. By the time I stop pouring, the cloud is already in the air and it is too late to spray anything.

Or is there a draft that sucks the dust cloud down into the hopper? And if that is true, why would you need to spray?
