Dust Suppression Systems
Monitech is the newly appointed global strategic partner to Dynamic Resource Solutions (DRS), a leading safety equipment specialist based in Australia. Monitech's reputation has been built on providing products, backed with a strong service ethic, that are designed to exceed the most stringent safety and quality standards applicable to mining operations all over the world.
As with all Monitech products, our partner products are designed to meet and exceed the industry's stringent demands.
Monitech customers will now have access to Dust Stop - Dust Suppression Systems, one of the industry's most effective whole dust reducing systems. The Dust Stop Suppression System is an industry proven whole-dust suppression system for both underground and surface working environments.
Dust Stop uses an airless system to feed water through a custom designed airless foaming nozzle that draws a unique foaming agent into the water supply. The foam is sprayed to effectively suppress dust, reducing the amount of total dust. The Dust Stop Airless System eliminates superfluous hardware to minimise setup and reduce lifecycle costs.
The Dust Stop System requires no electrical or hydraulic power to operate.
In-field testing has shown an improvement of over 25% in dust suppression when installed on a Continuous Miner underground. Belt transfer points have also shown similar improvement in dust reduction.

Methane Detection and Machine Monitoring
This field was the first one in which Monitech started operating and it remains the cornerstone of the company’s success.
In this area, Monitech continues to operate primarily as a developer and manufacturer of machine-mounted monitoring systems, which conforms to the highest industry standards and aims to enhance personnel safety with minimal impact on production.
Monitech provides around the clock technical, equipment and parts support for all installed systems.
In order to provide the highest levels of support to our clients, we pride ourselves on recruiting only the most highly trained technical experts, all of whom are vastly experienced in the underground environments in which our systems operate.
Monitech are proud to be the sole African distributor of the Matrix Intellizone Proximity Detection System. Monitech and American-based Matrix Design Group have formed a strategic partnership to advance mining safety systems in their entirety. The Matrix Intellizone System is the marker leader in the U.S. coal mining market on trackless mobile machinery.
The system and associated Cap Lamp Locator are fully approved for underground use in fiery mines and meets the DMR requirements for Proximity Detection Systems that are to be fitted to all trackless mobile machinery in the South African mining industry.
Research and Development
A strong focus on research and development is critical to maintaining Monitech’s competitive advantage and market dominance. This research focuses both on developing new solutions and product lines as well as continually improving the performance of existing systems.
Over the past several years, we have steadily increased the levels of reinvestment of revenue into research and development activities and we are extremely confident that the return on this investment will increase exponentially over the next several years.
Integrated Turnkey Solutions
From a solid base in gas detection and client support, Monitech’s on-going drive for diversification has led to the development of a wide range of skills and expertise in various fields related to human and machine safety in the mining sector.
As a result, we now find ourselves effectively positioned to deliver integrated solutions – designed and manufactured to client specifications – across a variety of mining functions.
In developing each of our solutions, we continue to rely on our core expertise of developing and manufacturing intrinsically safe and flame-proof equipment, aimed at monitoring machine performance and maximising personnel safety.
As mentioned, our solutions are the outcome of extensive research and development and close collaboration with our clients.
At Monitech we pride ourselves on our ability to develop bespoke solutions for our clients – at very different levels of scale – from individual items to high-volume integrated systems.
To manage these very different levels of manufacturing, we have taken advantage of various opportunities to enhance our in-house manufacturing capabilities and to wherever feasible integrate manufacturing activities into our systems integration processes.
