PROTECTIVE VENTS

Venting in
potentially
explosive environments
SOFTWARE

Mining
platform
includes
blasting
functionality
ASI Mining has collaborated with Enaex to
develop semi-autonomous blasting functionality with ASI's autonomous command
and control software, Mobius.
ASI's Mobius for Blasting application
provides capability for teleoperation and
autonomous navigation of blast vehicles,
including mobile manufacturing unit and
stemming vehicles. In addition, Mobius
has the potential to coordinate drill and
blasting, resulting in dynamically tailored
blast processes based on actual "as-drilled"
hole data, creating higher efficiency and
increased fragmentation.
Steps were taken to ensure the autonomous blasting solutions meet all required
safety, operational and availability standards, given the high risk of danger for
workers and equipment.
This development is part of an ecosystem of teleoperation and autonomous units
that will improve workers' safety by using
technology to perform tasks in risky mine
environments from a safe location.

W. L. Gore & Associates' GORE PolyVent Ex+ is the latest addition to Gore's protective vents screw-in series and is certified according to explosion-proof safety
standards, IECEx and ATEX. With these certifications, PolyVent Ex+ is allowed in
areas with potentially explosive atmospheres caused by combustible gases or dust.
Materials selected for designing GORE PolyVent Ex+ were chosen to support the vent's long-lasting behavior in the field. The vent body, cap and
membrane-sealing technology use nonflammable, stainless steel. The GORE
membrane, made of 100% ePTFE, delivers performance for pressure-equalization
customers, while achieving the highest flammability rating in its category. The
silicone O-ring with a flammability resistance rating of UL 94 V-0 adds another
layer of safety.
These materials, combined with the GORE PolyVent Ex+ construction, ensure
flammability and corrosion resistance, and chemical robustness. The GORE
membrane provides oleophobic and hydrophobic protection. With an airflow rate
of 1,600 ml/min at 70 mbar and an ingress protection rating of IP68/IP69k, PolyVent Ex+ reliably protects enclosures up to 20l for a wide range of temperatures.

POWER TAKE OFF

PTOs for demanding
work conditions
Twin Disc's HP800, a hydraulically-actuated power
take-off (PTO), is a middle horsepower range
option for industrial applications. The HP800 has
a maximum power rating of 800 hp at 1,800 rpm.
It's ideal for driving pumps, grinders, crushers,
dredgers, chippers, shredders and heavy-duty
drills.
The key feature of the HP800 is the auxiliary
drive pump towers 400 hp maximum capacity
tower, or 450 hp maximum for both. They can
rotate 0°, 45° and 90°, either clockwise or counter-clockwise, to allow for clearance in installations.
