BETTER FOR SAFETY AND EFFICIENCY
The summer heat and the rugged terrain of most mining operations combines to create a lot of airborne dust and other debris, which causes breathing difficulties and other respiratory problems. Working in this dusty environment not only leads to long term health problems, but can also create excessive operator fatigue and discomfort leading to reduced safety levels.
Whilst wearing a dust mask can reduce the risk, a longer term and more comfortable solution to dust ingress is cabin pressurisation, which works by creating a constant positive pressure in the cabin, producing a pressure barrier against dust entering the cabin from even the smallest gap. Cabin pressurised, are not only suitable for vehicle cabins, but are also highly effective in other working environments such as control rooms, caravans , switch rooms, crusher cabins, and skid steers – in fact anywhere that dust ingress in an issue.
