The Marine Corps is equipping its forces in Iraq with more hardware to distribute dust palliatives, which help reduce the hazards of landing helicopters in desert environments, reports Inside the Navy.
The palliatives are dispersed by 900-gallon trailer-mounted hydroseeders, 1,200-gallon skid mounted hydroseeders and 2,500-gallon scraper-mounted water distributors. The hydroseeders are made by Finn Corp. of Fairfield, OH, and the water distributors are manufactured by Caterpillar.
There are eight of each type of hydroseeder in Iraq. Additional hardware will be fielded to all garrison units there by the end of the year, Mike Farley, team leader for material and construction equipment for Marine Corps Systems Command, told ITN last week. The water distributors should be fielded by March 2007, he added.
Since January 2004, four dust abatement technologies have been used in theater: EnviroKleen, Soiltac, Surtac and Envirotac II.
