Setting new gas monitoring standards
Legislation calls for methane monitoring technology on mining machines to monitor and inhibit production whenever the existence of methane beyond predetermined levels is detected.
Use of modern technologies such as Monitech’s hazardous area control system has helped to shape the coal mining industry. It is legislated that purpose-made equipment be used. The technology must be approved under the relevant standards for equipment to be used in hazardous areas.
Introduced some 15 years ago, this system has become the “mainstay of the coal mining industry”. The hazardous area control system continues to provide excellent value. One of the key benefits of this technology is its versatility, which allows it to be adapted to any required platform. The equipment is also very flexible in terms of its applications.
