Our environmental technology helps improve the overall working environment by reducing factors such as dust or potential ignition points. 

The Joy Wethead cutterhead for continuous miners is both a cooling and a wetting system that incorporates a fine water spray behind each cutting bit on the cutter drums. 

Environmental technology highlights

  • Long life and dry-running ability
  • Fewer face ignitions
  • Lower bit consumption rate
  • Less water consumption than standard dust sprays


  • Reduces frictional ignitions
  • Reduces respirable dust levels
  • Increases visibility
