The WAP unit has allowed us to complete outbye projects that would have otherwise required planning for between shifts.
With no dust being generated from the pump we were able to complete these projects during standard shift times with no impact to production or inefficiencies due to short spray windows.
Whilst on site the pump has performed exceptionally with no issues and good application rates
Connor MacRae | Mining Engineer
As a reputable mining company Nexus we had the pleasure of using the WAP spraying unit on a task conducted at Dendrobium colliery.
Spraying the surrounds of an emergency sealing door installation was proving difficult due to the location at portal entry and interaction with an upcoming longwall move, mine traffic.
Planning the timeframe for spraying with a conventional pump was becoming problematic. Re dust issues.
The WAP was used and the end product was outstanding and it fit into the schedule bringing the project home before the end date.
The biggest advantage was the dustless application and ease of use. A crew was waiting at one point for the bag to be completed and were unaware that we were actually spraying due to the dust free application.
Ventsec are to be applauded for the design and also the assistance we received was above and beyond our expectations.
As we know dust is a major hazard in our already hazardous industry and to have a applicator of this nature is a huge advantage for use and the health of our workforce.
We will most certainly use this applicator on further projects within our company in the future.
