Dust Management Solutions on Show at AIMEX

Mideco is proud to be a part of the AIMEX Exhibition in Sydney this week – from the 29th to the 31st of August, 2017. The exhibition provides the opportunity to network with industry peers and learn from the latest technologies and innovations.

Mideco will be showcasing our key dust management products and solutions, such as the Bat Booth™ – a device designed to keep mining and quarry workers safe from the harmful elements of dust and airborne contaminants.

Our team looks forward to discussing the safety issues involved with mining, extraction, drilling, crushing, hauling and stockpiling industrial materials. The dust particles released during these processes can cause serious health issues for all workers, such as pneumoconiosis or silicosis. Both conditions are disabling and often fatal lung diseases.

Mideco’s mission is to help keep all workers and their operating environment safe by providing dust control and management solutions. We aim to develop partnerships that will last for years into the future with all our customers. If you have a dust control problem, we aim to be a part of your solution. For further information on our products and services please contact our sales team.

Come and visit us at stand #2544 at the AIMEX Exhibition.

The Origin of the Mideco Brand and The Bat Booth™

In the late 1970’s the Mideco brand symbol was developed. Stan White discussed his intentions with staff at the time, wanting Mideco to have a visual identity and purpose.

A logo was then developed with the help of a draftsman at the time.

Mideco-logo-and-text-iblue-and-gold

The Mideco “M” was adopted resembling a “Fruit Bat” – known to have the best overall vision of all bat species. They use their vision in conjunction with their sense of smell so that they are able to find their food sources. These senses also serve to help them avoid dangerous situations. They are a big type of bat and they are said to be among the most unique of the more than 1,200 species that have so far been identified.

Mideco as a business stands for these qualities. Known for being unique in the industry and having a vision to support our customers to be “protected from dangerous environmental situations with our technically advanced products providing real solutions to airborne related risks”.

Today, Mideco works hard to continuously innovate and develop products that play a critical role in minimising the risks posed by airborne contaminants and harmful dust particles in mining, quarrying and manufacturing environments. An example of this work in progress, is Mideco’s hero product – originally packaged with the Mideco “M” Fruit Bat logo on its side. This product was branded the Bat Booth™.

P1030748 Altered SQUARE HRThis product brand name was immediately trademarked and now Mideco take orders with customers’ specifying the Bat Booth™.

Designed as a Personnel De-dusting / clothes cleaning Booth to use safe, regulated compressed air to create a curtain of air to blow dust off worker’s contaminated clothing; and contain and capture air-borne dust using a dust filtering system.

The process takes only 10-12 seconds and tests have shown a 50% improvement in dust removed from clothes over other methods. The Bat Booth™ is supplied completely assembled on a skid base. Once on site, compressed air and power connections are all that is required to be fully operational.

Mideco’s Latest Feature in National Resources Review

Our latest feature in the National Resources Review has just been published.

We discuss the harm airborne contaminants can cause during mining, extraction, drilling, crushing, hauling and stockpiling industrial materials. Workers in these mines, quarries and other processes may be exposed to both dust and crystalline silica. These dust particles can cause serious health issues for all workers, such as pneumoconiosis or silicosis. Both conditions are disabling and often fatal lung diseases.

To help keep all workers and their environment safe, Mideco provide dust control solutions tailored to our clients’ specific needs and operational issues. Our mission is to help keep our customer’s working environment and workers safe. We aim to develop partnerships that will last for years into the future. If you have a dust control problem, we aim to be a part of your solution.

Our key projects demonstrate that we can confidently recommend the best technology for our customer’s application, from mining, quarry and cement to fertiliser and grain manufacturing. Our solutions process is rigorous, taking into account all steps to better understand the dust control problem, develop the essential criteria for the solution and design the most appropriate solution.

Worker Exposure To Respirable Dust

A recent assessment was performed by the NSW Government to provide an in-depth look at the “control measures for respirable dust management and their implementation”. The assessment was undertaken by a multi-disciplined team of Mine Safety inspectors for NSW underground coal mines.

The specific findings highlighted the need to:

  • ensure the “Ventilation Control Plan” accurately records the ventilation quantities required for safe production to occur;
  • develop a “Standard for Ventilation” where cement products are used in underground coal mines; and
  • review “Procedures for Activities” carried out on the return side of dust generating activities.

Targeted assessments are always seen as a valuable process capable of identifying critical risk control issues not previously uncovered by conventional inspection regimes in mines, quarries and other commercial environments. This approach also highlighted the strong benefits of using a multidisciplinary inspection team to identify issues across a range of areas through one activity.
