This week Mideco is presenting the Bat Booth™ at the Queensland Mining and Engineering (QME) exhibition, the largest regional mining and engineering event in Australia.
It begins in Mackay tomorrow, 24 of July and over the next few days hundreds of companies from around Australia and the world will showcase the latest mining and engineering technical solutions available on the market.
It’s a perfect stage to introduce our Bat Booth™ to the mining industry. Its innovative but simple design allows to permanently remove up to 80% of dust from staff’s clothing in seconds, using only compressed air.
We already have a connection with Queensland mining. In 2017 Glencore Mount Isa Mines acquired their first Bat Booth™. We have received excellent feedback from a very happy client. Participating at the QME in Mackay gives us an opportunity to introduce Bat Booth™ to more Queensland mines, where it can positively contribute to protecting the miners’ health from the harmful effects of silica dust.
In Queensland with almost 30,000 staff working across 50 operating mines this is a particularly relevant issue. The well-known Report No. 2, issued by the 55th Parliament Coal Workers’ Pneumoconiosis Select Committee on re-identification of CWP in Queensland, confirmed 21 coal mine workers in the state have been diagnosed with Pneumoconiosis or ‘black lung’ disease as of 29 May 2017.
However, this terrible disease can be prevented through appropriate dust control, adequate ventilation or personal respiratory protection.
Mideco’s Bat Booth™ was created specifically to deal even with the smallest dust particles such as silica, and it will help you protect your staff.
