Sandvik Mining recently launched ROPS- and FOPS-tested acid-proof versions of its iron cabins. They are designed for use in underground mining and can be used on the full range of new Next Generation drill rigs.
Although the acid-proof cabins look identical to the new iron cabins, they offer a number of safety, ergonomic and technical benefits, according to Kai Närvänen, Sandvik project manager. “They have better air ventilation and a better air cooling and warming system than in older versions of the cabin,” he says. “In addition, it’s quieter inside the new cabins.”
