Becker Mining South Africa’s commitment to optimum safety

Becker Mining South Africa’s stand at Electra Mining will once again highlight the company’s commitment to the highest standards in quality and safety in the mining sector and general industry.

Becker Mining’s extensive product portfolio, which complies with the most stringent government mining regulations and mining house specifications, includes high-performance, fit-for-purpose communication and safety solutions for underground and surface mining installations – Leaky Feeder, Wi-Fi, tagging and tracking, as well as environmental monitoring PDS systems.

In addition to communications solutions, Becker also offers intrinsically safe (IS) and flameproof underground electrical reticulation products, as well as fluid transfer, rigging, rope attachment, steel arch tunnel support and underground transportation systems. An important feature of all systems is they are designed to facilitate future upgrades.

Becker Mining’s critical service encompasses the design and manufacture of products and systems, using the latest technologies and advanced materials. Mine safety is significantly enhanced by the implementation of one or a combination of Becker’s specialised multi-technological solutions.


Becker Varis Smartsense gas monitoring system

On display this year – Hall 6 Stand C18 – will be communication and automation solutions, energy distribution systems, mechanical, electrical and electronic mining products, as well as transportation and roof support systems.

Of particular interest on the stand this year is the Becker Varis Smartsense® atmospheric and environmental monitoring system, which forms an essential part of critical underground and above-ground communications and safety systems.

The high accuracy Becker Varis Smartsense® gas monitoring system has integrated features for the detection of ambient temperature, humidity and barometric pressure. Apart from the accurate detection and monitoring of ambient temperature, humidity and barometric pressure, every device can monitor up to four gases, including Oxygen (O2), Methane (CH4), Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Carbon Monoxide (CO), Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S) and Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2).

An important advantage of the Becker Varis Smartsense SSFM-100 device over conventional monitoring systems, is all features are integrated into one compact instrument. There is no need for complex cable connections, troublesome programming or difficult calibration.

This system – which adheres to stringent local and international quality and safety regulations – is also certified for safe and reliable use in hazardous areas.

The mining sector in Africa benefits from Becker Mining’s ongoing research and development programme, where close international ties guarantee the edge on product design, impeccable manufacturing standards, cost efficiency, safety and reliability of equipment.
