During 2016 BHPB Olympic Dam hired a Bat Booth® to clean toxic and poisonous dust from the personnel and it performed to the highest standard. Despite working in an acidic environment, Bat Booth® excellent performance included passing every test and even the complete elimination of certain injuries.
After the trial, BHPB asked Mideco to build two Bat Booths® to their standard.
- Stainless steel case
- Fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) grating
- Stainless steel piping and fittings
- Pressure relief valve (PRV)
- A special plug, that allowed to run the unit on plug&play principle
Bat Booths® have been installed at BHP Olympic Dam site in 2017. Since that time they have been working perfectly, only required filters replacing.
