Cabin filtration has become a growing concern with the welfare of personnel being a priority. The exposure of hazardous contaminants, allergens and air born carcinogens can have a major impact
to the individual, company and industry. A renewed health focus especially in mining and construction is seen as an imperative standard to protect the health of operators who are working and exposed to respirable dust in above and below ground situations.
The trend is towards ever finer filtration. In recent years, the demand for high efficiency particulate air filters (HEPA filters) has risen. These products allow the retention of more than 99.99% of all particles.
Particles that are smaller than 2.5 micrometers like silica dust can have extreme health consequences. The mucous membranes of the nose and throat or nasal hairs can capture only some of these particles. They are particularly harmful to health because they can trigger inflammations in the lungs and transport toxic substances. Such particles are deposited mainly in the lower respiratory tracts and the lungs. They are considered a cause of respiratory and cardiovascular diseases as well as asthma. They are also believed to have a carcinogenic effect.
Silicosis is a lung disease caused by breathing in tiny bits of silica, a mineral that is part of sand, rock, and mineral ores such as quartz. It mostly affects workers exposed to silica dust in occupations such mining, glass manufacturing, and foundry work. Over time, exposure to silica particles causes scarring in the lungs, which can harm your ability to breathe.
Lyons expertise in the area of cabin and HVAC filtration ensures a fit for purpose solution. Sy-Klone’s self-cleaning filtration system are arguably considered the best value for money filtration
systems available to the mining and construction industries. This is backed up by some of the largest and most experienced multinational mining companies specifying Sy-Klone for all their heavy mobile equipment.
The main benefits of Sy-Klone technology are:
- Self-cleaning and maintenance free filtration system*
- Minimised filter costs
- Increase uptime
- Extended filter life of up to double that of others
- High grade filtration including HEPA (XLR removes 99.99% of ISO fine test dust)
- Uncomplicated installation method by a qualified installer (Lyons)
- Filtration protection options for personnel, engine and HVAC system
Sy-Klone’s applications, including heavy equipment, mining, agriculture, fire and rescue, military, construction, demolition, and forestry. It complies with international filtration and manufacturing standards that consistently meet or exceed industry requirements.
The RESPA range of Sy-Klone is the most advanced Cab Air Quality System available, delivering pre-cleaner, filter, and pressuriser in one compact, customisable unit. This innovation offers the highest quality of filtration.
Lyons and Sy-Klone are serious about air quality in operator enclosures and engines. MERV 16*/F9 filter (minimum level of filtration recommended by NIOSH for mining operations) uses unique “Nano Technology” with “self-cleaning” filter media which dramatically extends the filter life.
The HEPA filter is manufactured to the highest quality standard. Not only does your operator breathe easier, but HVAC systems stay clean and healthy as well.
