THE COOL TUBE® MKII – Innovative Cooling Solutions for the Mining Sector
No need to be hot and bothered anymore! The development of The Cool Tube® MKII ensures that you can work both comfortably and safely.
The Cool Tube® MKII offers a high-quality cost-effective solution to assist in beating heat stress and equipment overheating.
The Cool Tube® MKII, with design operational testing traceable back to the National Standards by the NATA certified laboratory, SIMTARS.
Mine Spec, compressed air driven portable “air conditioners”, delivering super cooled air to the workspace to combat the environmental condition of heat stress, and/or assist in controlling the operational temperatures of equipment and infrastructure both internal and external.
The Cool Tube® MKII, developed and manufactured for the intended use of:
• Hot, humid underground mining activities that are low ventilation.
• Confined space locations such as vessels, dragline tubs, hoppers and tank compartments.
• Concealed areas, tunnels and shafts.
• Positive pressure air-conditioned refuge chambers, operator stations, COBs and crib areas.
• Fixed equipment and infrastructure cooling – IE: Transformers, electric motors and radiators.
• Any hot or humid work area with sufficient compressed air available.
With no moving or maintainable parts, The Cool Tube® MKII has a size and accessory to suit your application.
HOT SPOTS® – Affordable Hot Roller Detection and Hazard Management
The Hot Spots ® ‘predict-to-prevent’ approach to detect deteriorating idler bearings on conveyor systems, aids not only in greatly improving the reliability and availability of the conveyance system, but directly assists in the early detection of conveyor mechanical components such as idlers, succumbing to frictional heating in an underground mining environment, leading to an unacceptable fire risk.
Hot Spots ® give visual indications of a failing idler bearing prior to the oxidisation, smoke or fire during the failure. First visual indication at ≥60°C and second final visual warning at ≥100°C.
The Hot Spots® predict-to-prevent approach, allows for an inexpensive, proactive resilient inspection scheme, over a reactive inspection structure resulting in elevated fire risk, non-compliances to legislative and principled obligations and unplanned costly downtime.
