The mining industry is one of the most significant industries in South Africa, contributing over 8% to the country’s GDP, with rich resources like coal, platinum, diamonds, gold, and iron ore being mined. However, working in mines involves dealing with potentially explosive atmospheres that contain gases, oxygen, and dust, making safety a top priority. To mitigate the risks of explosions, flame- and explosion-proof products are essential.
Why are Explosion-Proof Products Necessary?
Explosive atmospheres, which contain combustible substances like gas, dust, or flammable liquids, oxygen, and potential ignition sources, such as sparks or high temperatures, are common in various industries, including mining, oil refineries, chemical processing plants, hospitals, and more. To prevent explosions and protect lives and property, all electrical equipment used in such hazardous areas must be designed to avoid sparks or heat that could ignite the flammable substances.
Introducing KAMA Industries’ Explosion-Proof Products
KAMA Industries specialises in manufacturing a wide range of explosion-proof equipment suitable for various applications in above- and below-ground mining operations. Each product is custom designed with a robust enclosure that fully encapsulates the equipment, preventing sparks from escaping into the external environment. This ensures that the equipment can be safely used in hazardous areas without posing a risk of fires or explosions, while maintaining its functionality.
KAMA Industries’ explosion-proof products include sirens and sounders, beacons and flashers, terminal and junction boxes, isolator switches, vehicle and area lights, and break-glass call points, among others. These products are rigorously tested to comply with strict international manufacturing standards, including undergoing explosions in simulated environments to ensure their durability.
Some of Our Explosion-Proof Products:
