This barrier technology was selected following extensive testing in Kloppersbos, South Africa. It is proven to be at least as effective as traditional stone dust barrier at lower cost and greater flexibility as it requires lower threshold pressure to operate.
The barrier system can be used in a number of configurations including a fixed distributed barrier as used in longwall gate roads.
The bags are designed to contain up to 6kg of stone dust and shred easily under explosion pressure to disperse dust. The plastic hook and seal arrangement is used to seal and hang the bag from the roof of the mine.
Supply of filled barrier bags can accommodate all mine requirements. (cardboard boxes on pallets or steel bins).
As well as supplying barrier bags Becker also offers attachments and platforms for managing deliveries and Installation, we manufacture and supply of our bag barrier erection hardware including certified elevated work platforms and fabricated steel bins with spare bins allowing a rotation system for re-filling.
