Mideco is committed to providing high quality dust control solutions, and we are always pleased to receive great feedback from our clients.
Our U.S. client, Stillwater Mining, has been using Bat Booth™ since April, 2016. Their safety coordinator Shane Anderson has contacted us to let us know the client and staff are very happy with Bat Booth™ and use it frequently.
Stillwater Mining has a palladium mine in Columbus, Montana, USA. They required a PPD tool to protect their staff from the effects of inhaling fine particles of crushed palladium. Our US agent, Controlled Environments Group, LLC has liaised with the company and delivered Bat Booth™ to the site.
Bat Booth’s™ popularity is steadily growing in the American market. It generated lots of interest at the National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association’s convention in March. This year it was also included in the Dust Control Handbook produced by NIOSH (the U.S. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health). Bat Booth™ was presented as one of the best examples of removing dust from personnel uniforms thus helping prevent dust related diseases, in particular those caused by silica exposure.
Bat Booth™ is a popular choice for mining because it’s efficient, doesn’t require installation, needs minimum maintenance and removes up to 80% of dust in 10 seconds. In Australia, it’s used at Glencore Mount Isa Mine and BHPB Olympic Dam amongst others.
