We engineered and introduced the Dustless Pump as the answer to a problem we saw in constructing VCDs, strata support, roof and rib support. The Dustless Pump minimises airborne contaminants and works quickly to keep your operation moving.
When we looked closely at pump technology, not much had changed since the early 1900s. Pumping grout, plaster and concrete to an underground operation is laborious, highly unreliable and hard on equipment, requiring plenty of maintenance and part changes. Not to mention the process of cleaning out a line slowing down an operation.
We know productivity is king in an underground mining operation. That’s why our Dustless Pump is engineered for peak efficiency.
The dustless operation brings major production benefits, including:
Then there are the safety benefits to your team and ours:
We trialled the Dustless Pump in September 2021 at Glencore’s Oaky Creek North underground operation. The aim was to directly compare the dust reduction during spraying operations with existing industry-standard technology.
The results demonstrate an average 95% in dust reduction at three key points:
And if the numbers don’t convince you, here’s a visual demonstration:
