Published Wednesday 15 Nov, 2017 by Ben Wood

Like any Mining / Earthmoving Equipment, Excavators / Shovels are notorious for operating in severe Particulate conditions with frequent failure of the Air- conditioning System. In addition, inundation of the Operators Cabin and exposure is a real concern.

The solution- a QCABAIR® (pat.pend) Cabin Pressuriser / Filtration Core Connection Mixing Plenum are fitted to the Operators Cabin of the EX3600 Shovel

The only Cabin Pressuriser / Filtration Technology (RESPA®) field tested and certified to be compliant to Airborne Particulate and Fibre Exposure by an Australian OH&S Regulator- Queensland Mines Inspectorate (DNRM) and NIOSH (National Institute of Occupational Health and Safety)- USA.

LSM Technologies provided complete Engineering Design (OH&S RA Analysis, Mounting, etc), OH Certification, Installation and Commissioning of the QCABAIR® (pat.pend) Cabin Pressuriser / Filtration Core Connection Mixing Plenum using our HEPA H13 (EN1822) Filter Element technology providing:
