Sy-Klone filtration is used in various mining operations throughout the world. In Colombia South America, Sy-Klone is the preferred automotive cabin and engine filtration systems, for some of the largest coal mines in the country. Cerrejon and Drummond Coal are two worth mentioning. Cerrejon is the largest open pit coal mine in the world and likely the longest in continuous operation.
The D11R fleet at Drummond was the largest fleet of D11’s in the world, with around 113 machines in operation. They are equipped with Sy-Klone Optimax and RESPA CF/CFX. Most of the D11 fleet worked the coal pile while it was continuously burning as the coal piles spontaneously combust and while the crew regularly fight to put out the fires. All of Sy-Klones case studies on electrical cabinets, D11R OPTIMAX and RESPA studies are on machines in active coal mine operations, as they have done more work in coal mines than any other mining type.
Sy-Klone are working right now on a Liebherr 9400 in New Mexico at a North American Coal Company on installing the OPTIMAX and RESPA systems. This machine is working a coal seam that is on fire and producing fly ash overburden. The machine and operator have suffered significantly from the fly ash which has produced 50-hour engine filter changes and daily cab filter changes.
The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Office of Acquisition Services (OAS) on behalf of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), and the Pittsburgh Mining Research Division (PMRD) intend to award a contract to Sy-Klone International (Sy-Klone) to develop a “Smart-Cab” filtration system and install it on an active piece of equipment to be field tested.
Sy-Klone has been utilizing NIOSH evidence-based research for nearly 17 years, holds 60 patents for filtration system technology and has 35,000 systems installed globally which enables them to continually research and develop new technologies in mobile equipment filtration. Notice of Intent Smart Cab Filtration System demonstrates the value of having Sy-Klone on-site as a preferred mobile vehicle filtration system.
Sy-Klone are actively engaged in projects with NIOSH to resolve specific coal mining issues around ultra-fine particles. They have developed technology and solutions that other filtration brands cannot rival. There are many more reasons why Sy-Klone should be the filtration of choice in the Coal Mining industry as they are in various other mining operations. In Australia companies like Rio Tinto, FMG, Citic Pacific, Glencore and many more depend on Sy-Klone to keep their operators safe and their equipment operational.
There are various case studies for Sy-Klone Kits for Mining Machines that tell you what the application are and where they are best suited. For more information contact the experts at Lyons Air-conditioning Services on (08) 9259 7777 or email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
