Stock controller Paul Blount tells Mining Weekly that the company’s luminaires, which are designed and manufactured in South Africa, are designed to perform in the extreme environmental conditions of the mining industry.
“Our products have South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) approval for use in gas or dust explosive atmospheres,” says Blount.
Further, the company is a member of the South African Flameproof Association.
The company’s SABS flameproof luminaires are lightweight and rugged in construction.
Blount tells Mining Weekly that the lights are manufactured in 12, 24, 32, 110 or 240 V versions, which range from 18W to 65 W.
One of the company’s latest products is the Azolite flameproof development lighting system.
“This was designed to provide not only lighting to the development work area but also improve safety and productivity in explosive gas atmospheres,” informs Blount.
The system consists of two 110 V 55 W flameproof luminaires, 15 m of texoprene supply cable and a 60 m texoprene feed cable, which comes with flameproof coupler.
Blount adds that the system can be manufactured to the client’s specifications.
The company also has flameproof sirens used in explosive atmospheres.
Mining Weekly also learns that these sirens have variable tones and frequencies that provide sound of up to 110 dB.
Also available is the flameproof telephone designed to withstand underground conditions in the mining industry.
The phone comes complete with SABS 314-1, SABS 60079-0 and the SABS IEC 60079-11 standards mark.
